    Surely that price is missing zero. Right?

    And also, foreclosure realtors are the laziest pieces of crap out there.
    How hard is it to take some interior photos of the place?
    Seriously?
    Even his listing description is the height of laziness.

      Could NOT possibly AGREE MORE, Venom.

      I just shot a house today that WAS 1.6 million three years ago, and is now down to 869,000 (I think) and 98% of my shots will be terrific. It will never cease to FRY my ass as to just how many and how pathetic at least half of all real estate listing photo’s are, even in THIS day & age with photographic technology being what it is. Unbelievable!

    The outside actually ain’t too bad. Perhaps there are no interior shots because it is gutted and/or trashed? The price does seem remarkably fair.

    The exterior isn’t bad, although it’s also nothing special. I do like the motor court. The grounds clearly need some TLC, but could be very nice. I’m guessing the interior needs similar attention. It’s a lot of square feet for the price, that’s for sure.

    There go the prices of the many, many properties listed in the Barrington area. A little bird tells me that the construction of a new mall being built in Barrington recently stalled after a key investor pulled out. Welcome to the foreclosure capital of the future aka Chicagoland!

    PS I’ll ask a question that I asked on an earlier thread – have any of the Chicago area homes listed here sold? 😉

    Wow…quite the REO property. I would expect some banking folks lost their jobs over underwriting this loan.

    I’m betting the interior is quite a DIY project at this point, making the price really NOT that great, in the total view of things. It was probably no “oversight” that there are no interior views….

    I am thinking this thing has got to be gutted for that price. I like the style of the place. Were the pictures kind of wavy or is that the style of the back facade? Plenty of land and nice lake and basketball court. There is something else going on here.

    Two big negatives here, even for the eye-poppingly low price. The house was quite possibly built on former farmland, hence the complete absence of ANY mature trees/landscaping anywhere near enough to the house so as to provide the correct look. Also, the house is right next to what looks like a country road, possibly…..no matter how much greenery you plant/try to grow to drown out the road noise, it’ll still be quite noticeable. It inarguably looks ridiculous sitting on that lot with noting mature to soften/embrace it.

    The house is entirely overwrought/cheesy and “wanna’-be” for me. Would much rather have a correctly done (in whatever genre), naturally & decently landscaped home half the size, if I had to live in a house right on a road like that.

      I agree with you completely, Barney. Frankly I’m surprised at how accepting the comments are of this place. This monstrosity is hideous, no style whatsoever, it just looks like 75% of the rest of the McMansions in Barrington/Barrington Hills/North Barrington, etc etc etc. Yes, the price is low, but the grounds are horribly neglected/abandoned, and I’d be willing to bet the interior is that bad or worse. Spend a million or two more elsewhere and save yourself the headaches.

    On second look, scratch that comment about the farmland, sorry. Obviously all the trees in the satellite shots prove me wrong. If there were any mature trees in place before the house was built, they were vaporized too much so. I would’ve built a house 2/3 the size & cost and then spent the rest on mature trees, hedges & landscaping to give the house a decent start on some true curb appeal & stature.

    Wow, for 15,000 sf you can go wrong at 1.5MM, the roof looks to be slate and that’d be my biggest concern, and the exterior is still in good conditon, so even if the interior is COMPLETELY gutted you’d still make out awesome on this place.

    The inside is completely gutted. There is nothing, not even outlet covers. The place has been completely ransacked!
