Another North Shore spectacle, with a historical punch, is settling in to the MLS' luxury tier. Originally built in the 1920s as the Kellogg estate, 80 Locust Road in Winnetka listed in early April for $9.9M, quickly readjusted to $8.9M. At 18,672 square feet, that's only $476/sf! Hey, sometimes you gotta grope for a little spin. The property's lawns, tennis courts, terraces pool, and pool house, and putting green add up to about three acres. The compound's main home has Mediterranean stylings, an 18-room count (eight beds, seven baths), and a matching four-car garage. All the signifiers of reckless abandon are present, but the one thing lacking when up against other Winnetka showstoppers is lake frontage. According to the listing agent, the property is available for the first time in 35 years.
