Commuter railroad lines radiate from Chicago’s lakefront like spokes on a wheel, so it’s not unusual for local residents to ride a train to work every day. What is less common? Being able to ride a train once you get home from work! Railroad-obsessed residents of this $3.5 million home in suburban River Forest can do just that.
River Forest, about a 20-minute drive from Chicago’s Loop, is known for its stately mansions. Many of them, like this one, were built during the Roaring ’20s. This 7,747-square-foot Swiss chalet–style home features six bedrooms—and a Disney-esque train that runs around the property’s nearly 1 acre lot.
