Where The Wild Homes Are

New, 2 comments

Seven of the 10 largest homes in Cook County are in the northwest suburbs including Barrington, Barrington Hills and Inverness, according to a fun bit of sleuthing by Crain's. Consulting the Cook County Assessor, Crain's laid out the county's top 10. Two are on the market, including "Le Grand Reve" in Winnetka. Square footage runs between 15,500 and 25,000. Only one place is in Chicago: an under-construction Burling Street monstrosity. If the county line reached a little further north, MJ's 56,000-square-foot Highland Park manse would blow 'em all away. According to Crain's, these homeowners are "an eclectic mix of businessmen". As usual, their wives go unnamed. [Crain's]
