Full Description: The story of Ravenswood, a timeless vintage English Tudor lakefront, is part of the lore of Harbert. While it is well known that Carl Sandburg made his home a few feet down the beach during the 30's and early 40's, some may not know the story of this property. Built in the early 30's for a football player turned famous professional wrestler, Jumpin Joe Savoldi, by his Italian stone mason family, the workmanship remains flawless. Another owner, Cecil Pond and his wife Betty from South Bend, invented the riding lawnmower and founded Wheelhorse Products. Owned for the past 25 years by Chaz and the late Roger Ebert, their renovation of the estate maintains the timeless elegance. At the beach is a fully equipped guest house overlooking the wide pristine riparian beach.
