Culture Clash: The Pan-European Suburban Home

Like your new things to have an old-world timelessness? Then we reckon you'll want to keep Vintage Elegant Family Estates in your sights. In today's Deal Estate column, Dennis Rodkin steers us toward the Hidden Lakes gated subdivision in South Barrington for a look at the developer's product. One of the huge homes is for sale, a 20-room collage of European-ism. Let's see... there's a mosaic-floored foyer, walnut plank floors with inlaid fleurs-de-lis, carved lions framing a fireplace, and timber beams made of old salvaged Wisconsin wood. The basement is home to a full-scale pub, a wine room, game room, and a movie theater. And there's still much, much more. The ask? $5.5M. This is America gosh darn it! Why not make your home a melting pot? [Chicago Mag]
