A five-bedroom, 11,000-square-foot French Provincial-style mansion in Winnetka sold last month for $5.55 million.
Built in 1999 and located on a private lane off Sheridan Road, the two-story mansion has 6 1/2 baths, a grand foyer, a sunroom, a library, four fireplaces and a basement with a home theater, a sauna and a wine cellar. Outside on the 0.8-acre parcel are terraces and a private beach.
The sellers, QUEsocial CEO Greg Silich and his wife, Martha, lost a considerable amount of money on the house, which they purchased in 2007 for $6.5 million. They first listed it in March 2014 for $6.975 million and later reduced its asking price to $6.775 million and then $5.995 million before finding a buyer.
Records show that the buyer is a Lake Forest-based limited liability company whose owner is identified as Christopher T. Childs.
