This is certainly one of those ultra luxurious and magnificent mega mansions that will make all the baller guys muster every last penny of their hard earned baller money from every possible source to place a bid on this fall. The 27,000 square foot French Chateau in Chicago’s ultra exclusive North Shore – Le Grande Reve designed by Richard Landry that was originally on the market for a whopping $32M is coming up for a live-on-site auction on October 29th. The property will be sold in a fully furnished condition to the highest bidder.
The grandiose chateau has been modeled after Chateau Villandry in France’s Loire Valley. It is a gem of an estate that is located on more than 2 acres of land. The Chateau features six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a jaw dropping entrance that includes a Tiffany stained glass dome and a two story rotunda. Inside, you can also see a grand room, a beautiful formal dining room, a baller kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, a butler’s pantry, wine cellar, spa vestibule and salon, gym room, library and a theater with soundproofing and stadium seating.
To house all the housekeeping staff that is required to manage this overly large chateau on a daily basis, staff quarters are provided. The finish in every room is more than detailed right from the gold accented iron railings to the crown moldings in plaster. Additional rooms include a guest room and a gift wrapping or craft room. The outdoors are extremely inviting as well and include manicured gardens and lawns, a heated swimming pool and spa and a 5 car heated garage of twice the average height to enable you to park and store up to 10 cars. Over the top luxury, we’re sure you’d agree!
So which one is it? A Chateau to live for OR one to die for? We can’t wait to hear your responses on this one.
