Crate and Barrel Co-Founders are Selling this House for $6.9M

New, 4 comments

Gordon and Carole Segal, the co-founders of Crate & Barrel, have put a 10,000-square-foot Winnetka mansion on the market, the Tribune reports. That's a lot of house for two people, but as it turns out, they never even lived in it! (They reside in a 7,312-square-foot mansion next door.) The listing agent tells the Trib that they purchased it as a "renovation project" for Carole, who redesigned the place herself. Oh, to be filthy rich... As you might expect, the home looks light, airy, and very put together. The question you're probably wondering: Is the place furnished entirely with Crate & Barrel goods? Not exactly, but there are a few familiar items in the listing photos, like the Azure sofa ($1,799), the Pavilion Black Canopy Bed ($1,299), and is that an Axis Leather Sofa ($2,699)? It might just be. The house sits on a beautiful 2.4-acre plot that has been spiffed up by landscape architect Doug Hoerr. According to the Trib, the Segals bought the place for $4.475 million in 2008, and they're now trying to sell it for $6.899 million.
