The Villa Taj estate, which is located at 6501 S County Line Road in Burr Ridge, Il, has gone back on the market with an asking price of $13,000,000. The mansion is owned by Husam Aldairi and Rawaa Atta-Aldairi. The couple spent $18 million and 5 years building this massive home only to put it on the market halfway through the construction of it because they couldn’t handle the cold winters. The 45,000 square foot behemoth (15,000 of that is covered terraces) sits on 3.5 acres of land and boasts 6 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a grand 2-story ballroom with 38′ ceiling, two 30×30 living rooms, an elevator, gourmet kitchen, family room, formal dining room, 2,500 square foot master suite, lounge, wine cellar with cigar room, 20-car heated subterranean garage, and much more.
Villa Taj was first listed back in June of last year with an asking price of $25,000,000. It then was taken off the market. Before being thrown back onto the market again, Villa Taj was up for auction on November 4th, 2009 with a starting bid of $6,265,000, however it failed to sell. Despite the asking price being reduced by almost half, I still think the home is going to be a tough one to sell.
