This restored and redecorated Georgian style mansion is located at 443 Sheridan Road in Glencoe, IL and is situated on 2 acres. It was built in 1936 and features approximately 14,364 square feet of living space with 8 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, foyer with sweeping staircase, formal living room with fireplace, oval shaped formal dining room, walnut paneled library, gourmet kitchen with breakfast room, screened-in porch, sunroom, lower level family room, home theater, game/pub room, swimming pool with spa, half-court basketball court, semi-detached 4-car garage and more.

Overall, it’s a fantastic older home with spacious rooms. However, I like the way it was decorated before, not now.

    I prefer the dining room before. Something about the exterior that makes it look rough and unfinished – not exactly a nice exterior. Interior has some nice parts, with my favorite being the foyer.

    I love the interior! Its very art deco with a modern twist, its nice to see they retained alot of the original features too, I’m bored of seeing the Candy&Candy style interiors now, this is a breath of fresh air. I have to agree with Dan on the exterior though, the colour of the bricks and the shutters don’t go well, I would plaster it white or paint the shutters maybe.

    I like the house itself. I for one think the rough exterior kind of works. I prefer the texture over something like stucco. Like Sam said, I’m not sure about the shutters though.

    The interior: I’m not a fan of either the before or the after. The dining took several steps backward from the “before”, as did the foyer; I don’t like the ketchup and mustard look of the foyer at all. There are some great details, like the silver leaf ceiling in the dining room and the stairway banister. But, the whole thing feels flat. There are very few layers to the interior, and it could really stand to have some added.

    I’m not a fan of the exterior…the rough look doesn’t do it for me, although I can understand it’s appeal to some. There are some nice spaces inside, but it doesn’t come together into a cohesive whole for me. I always get excited for these lakefront Chicago homes, but this one leaves me flat.

    My issue with the front facade is the second floor windows and roof line. The second floor windows look too short and and the roof line too shallow. The brick color is bland but I hate to paint or stucco over brick. I wonder if the property is actually lakefront. Not all houses (odd numbers) on Sheridan in Glencoe are lakefront as a lot of the estates have been long divided. Since 2 acres is a large parcel of east Glencoe I wonder if a builder will buy it, tear it down and sell 4 McMansions.
