A four-bedroom, 10,789-square-foot mansion in southwest suburban Plainfield was listed on April 14 for $2.5 million.
Built in 2000, the contemporary-style mansion easily is the highest-priced listing in the rapidly growing west suburb, where the next-highest asking price for a house is $1.1 million for a 5,500-square-foot house on a 10.5-acre parcel.
Situated on Lake Walloon in Plainfield, the mansion has six baths, three laundry areas, floor-to-ceiling windows on the back of the home, a master suite with a sitting area, a custom office suite on the top level, an elevator, a walkout lower level with a wet bar, a home theater, a steam and sauna room with a waterfall and light features and a wine cellar. Outside on the property are a pool, a fire pit, a dock and lake access.
The sellers also are including a pontoon boat in the asking price.
"Talk about resort-living year-round," said listing agent Michael LaFido of Conlon: A Real Estate Company. "You won't find (another) setting like this in Chicagoland. The views from every level are amazing. The lower level bar and wine room are the classiest around."
