This behemoth of a home is located on S. Braymore Drive in Barrington. It is located at the end of a long private driveway. The home looks to have a 9+ car garage. It also a swimming pool that is being completed and a domed circular glass conservatory. You can tell how massive this home is when you take a look at the 7,000+ square foot mansions next to it. This home was brought to my attention by a reader of Homes of the Rich. If anyone has any information on this home (like it's square footage) please send me an email or leave a comment below. Thanks.
This huge mansion called "Living Waters" is located on Crystal Bay. It is one of the largest homes in Minnesota. A loyal reader of mine mentioned this home to me a couple of times. The mansion includes a two-story foyer, two-story great room, a gourmet kitchen, and numerous other amenities. The amazing lower level / entertainment level includes a recreation room complete with billiards table and aquarium, an amazing custom home theater, and a full commercial kitchen. The best part of this home is the indoor pool. The massive 2-story enclosed pool area contains a large fireplace, numerous sitting areas, a swimming pool with diving board, and a floating slide.
