Prime Illinois Real Estate
I don't know about you, but I enjoy looking online at homes for sale in Illinois that I know I will NEVER get close to ever being able to afford. Does that make me a masochist or just a dreamer? I prefer to think of it as inspiration for future remodeling and/or redecorating projects in my own home. Either way, I just came across a home currently for sale in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago that costs more than Michael Jordan's former mansion in the city. (That is still for sale, btw)

Before I tell you the official price of this expensive Illinois home, how about I show you some pictures of it so you can try to guess how much you think it is...(DON'T CHEAT by looking up the listing yet!)
Here are just a few pictures of this 25,000-square-foot home that features six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and even a wine cellar that holds 5,000 bottles!
Now that you've gotten a glimpse of it, how much do you think it's selling for?
When this home located at 1932 N Burling St. in Chicago was first listed, the original asking price was $500 MILLION, but it just recently got a price cut.
Why Is This Illinois Home Worth So Much?
I think we can all agree that this home is BEAUTIFUL, but is it $300 million dollars beautiful? Apparently, it is thanks to all its extravagant details.
According to WGN;
the 5,000 bottle wine cellar and tasting suite on the lower level features 14′ ceilings modeled after the “Great Stable of Versailles.” The entry doors are custom-designed and made of bronze, weighing an impressive 1,000-pounds.
The home also features tons of custom millwork and stonework, Italian plaster, 22K gold and platinum hardware, and many more exquisite finishes.
