Location: 6 Athena Court, Tinley Park, IL

Square Footage: 15,570

Bedrooms & Bathrooms: 7 bedrooms & 11 bathrooms

Price: $1,790,000

This deal of a home is located at 6 Athena Court in the Odyssey Country Club in Tinley Park, IL and is situated on 0.89 acres of land. Built in 2004, the stone and shingle mansion features approximately 15,570 square feet of living space with 7 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 2-story foyer with marble floors, formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen, back staircase next to a butler’s pantry, family room, recreation room, home theater, indoor swimming pool, 4-car garage and a half-court basketball court.

I really like the exterior; the stone and shingle combo has always been a favorite of mine. The interior has nice spaces, but is way too bland and uninspired. However, you can’t deny that this is a great deal. Where else can you find a 15,000 square foot house with a great exterior and indoor swimming pool for under $1.8 million?!

    It’s not a bad house. There’s nothing to knock anyone’s socks off, but it would make a nice family home. I don’t like the garage wing, but I have to say that the house is nicer than some others we’ve seen for 10 times the price.

    I don’t know if this is such a great deal considering the relatively barren location. I mean, it looks like the community is half abandoned. There are townhomes next door to slabs of concrete that haven’t been worked on in a long time judging from the aerials. Remember, it’s always better to have the cheapest home in a nice community than the nicest home in a crappy community. House ain’t terrible, but they cheapened it out. Could they have found smaller marble tiles for the foyer? You might as well have made it a giant mosaic. Rest is decent.

    Was this really built in 2004? OK. I admit it. I’m a snob. But has it really sat uncompleted till now? Or has it sat empty nine years? Could you be sure of anything inside those walls?

    I can’t stand these kinds of “communities”. They are soulsuckingly bland and remind me of the worst of mass development philosophies. No sidewalks, no landscaping, no space for gardens (even a community garden), no playscapes, no community facilities whatsoever, nothing. The neighborhood looks, for all intents and purposes, like very low income housing.

    With respect to the house itself, its big, and it’s cheap. What’s with the sink, counter and cabinets in pic #5? Who would put a kitchen area backing up to a staircase like that? Weird.

      Yeah I’m sure it’s a wet bar with the wine rack over the sink, but the lack of a faucet is what I thought was weird.

      Wet bar by a back staircase. It probably backs up to the dining room. It looks like the hole for the faucet was drilled in the granite. Maybe they never installed it or they took the faucet with them?
