    I like the outside and the inside of the house itself but every peice of furniture would have to go – talk about ugly.

    I agree. The interior furnishings just don’t work. It seems so disconnected. And that kitchen…I suppose some natural light would have been too much to ask for.

    Yeah, other than the entry and a couple of rooms, the rest of the house seems a little dark. I appreciate the quality of the finish-out, especially the doors and molding, but it doesn’t seem like a 33,500 sf house in that video. Price seems decent for that size however. Agree with Grrrrowler that the video is very “Cribs” like with the jerky edits and zooms–this house should be shown in a far more elegant and SLOW style.

    The exterior is nice but the design of the house and the interior are not my style, although it seems like they put of a lot of real detail into it. The property looks good though.

    Barney,

    Thanks for the response. I agree completely with what you’re saying. The sad fact is that IL is harder hit than most other states, and things are likely to get worse as companies and talented people are leaving the state. Forbes estimates that Chicago alone has lost more than 86000 jobs in 2009, many of them very highly paid ones. I can’t see anything improving for a long time in this place.

    George,

    The Hidden Ponds sellers can raise their asking price to a billion dollars if they want to. The question is whether anyone is going to pay. That said, a 70 acre property that is not far from a 20 acre one, and in a lower property and transsfer tax location, is going to be more valuable than the smaller property – a lot more valuable in a prestigious location like Barrington. The mess in the state economy is not going away, though. Like it or not, Illinois’s economy is among the worst state economies in the country, and it is not getting any better. When this happens, you can expect the prices of luxury properties to fall hard.

    Best wishes with your stock holdings. I wish there were a way for me to raise the value of mine. 🙂
