This newly built 24,000 square foot mansion is located at 1900 Winnetka Avenue in Northfield, IL. I would never have though that this home was over 24,000 square feet judging by the exterior picture. I must say, the interior seems very welcoming and comfortable for a house that large. I hate the fake plants in the foyer though, so tacky. The home was built in 2008 and boasts a total of 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, a floating curved staircase, a living room, a dining room, a family room, and a master suite with office. The lower level boasts a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, music room, gym, and a home theater. There is also an indoor swimming pool, tennis court, and 2 bonus rooms. It is listed at $5,500,000, which is a steal at only $229 a square foot! What do you guys think of the home?

    Illinois – and Chicago in particular – are in an enormous financial mess that oly gets worse by the day. While Winnetka, Northfield etc are nice neighborhoods with a good school district, they are also not all that far from some very dangerous spots with endemic crime that no one cares about doing anything about. It is the same with all of Chicagoland. As this city descends into a Detroit-like status (Forbes reported some time ago that Illinois had lost over 250,000 of its highest paid jobs in 2008 and 2009) you can rest assured that the prices for this and other fancy properties will be low compared to parts of the country that are doing better. You know something is seriously wrong when both Bill O’Reilly and Snoop Dog agree that the blighted parts of Chicago (and they were talking about the South Side, about 20 miles from this location) happen to be as bad as Haiti – after the earthquake. No city, no matter how wealthy, can really survive the kind of corruption and flight of business that faces Chicago. Again, Detroit, just four hours away by road, is probably the direction that this place is heading headlong towards.

    The staircase in the foyer should have been more impressive and not so tacky.The baby blue in the indoor pool is atrocious.The other parts of the interior are generally well designed, making this house looks inviting and homey.

    The price is considered a steal definitely.
