It used to be one of the most beautiful places in the Chicagoland until it was taken over by Loyola university. They sold the land, dismantled historical buildings and cut down the trees. Now they are building residential houses all around the unique mantion. Shame!

the house and gardens are a beautiful backdrop to any event, be it wedding, art fest or jazz evening. The house used to be open for tours, but they are closed for renovations now

My first visit to Cuneo mansion and gardens. It's been closed for the last two years for ongoing renovations. Loyola University has done a superb job. You won't notice most of the $7 million they've spent renovating, but that's why this place is so special....More

This is a beautiful mansion with gardens, lakes and buildings. The mansion also hosts Loyola students for their extra classes. Entry to the mansion is through a guarded gate. It is next to the Mall
