With a budget of $4 million, you could live anywhere in the Chicagoland area. You could buy a penthouse on the Mag Mile, a 21,000 square foot McMansion in South Barrington, or nearly all of the Frank Lloyd Wright homes that are currently for sale in the Chicago area right now. Needless to say, you can get a lot of house for that kind of money. At 7,000 square feet, this home is no behemoth, but what it does have is high quality finishes and craftsmanship.
The exterior is clad with limestone, the study room has incredible wood paneling, the elevator looks like something that would take Bruce Wayne to the Batcave - you get the point. And although the area is known for tearing down lots of older homes, the builders did not replace old crap with new crap. This is good sh... shiny stuff. Yeah, it's really good stuff. An attached four car garage and sweet rooftop deck come are both included for $3.879 million.
