The much talked about Villa Taj estate, which is located at 6501 S County Line Road in Burr Ridge, IL, has apparently been flooded with water. An agent went to show a potential buyer the property when they discovered the home was filled with millions of gallons of water from a water pipe break. The sad part? Half of the house is expected to be gutted and replaced; which means even more money down the drain.
The last time it was listed on the MLS was back in August of 2010 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.
