This magnificent French Chateau, which I talked about in earlier posts, is finally listed on the Sotheby’s Realty website. There are more pictures of the home here. The home was designed by the renowned Landry Design Group, which is based in Los Angeles. The home is on the market for a mind numbing $32,000,000. For that amount, you get a 27,000 square foot home with a gorgeous marble foyer with double staircase, 6 bedrooms, a 5+car garage, and much much more. While you would expect a house of this caliber and price to be  lakefront or sit on acres of land, this home has neither of those. To me, the home is a bit overpriced.

    It is not “a bit” but badly overpriced considering the state of the Chicago housing market. What’s the wager it sells for half the asking price?

    The Lansdowne estate sold for less than half what it was listed for on Christies Great Estates for almost three years and it has since been subdivided into several bits, none of which are anywhere near close to selling. If someone wants to spend a lot of money, there are far better places to spend it in than in a city that topped Forbes magazine’s “most miserable place to live” list recently. Ridiculous taxes, of course, make up for the misery in question.

  • I think the price has dropped some. Not sure, but heard it. It is an interesting property. See what good taste and good money can combine 🙂
