In an article put out by Architectural Digest recently, the most beautiful homes in each state, that are currently for sale, are listed and a 17,000-square-foot northern suburbs home has topped the list as the most beautiful home for sale in Illinois.
Tucked away on more than 8 acres of manicured lawns, mature trees and two lakes is a home located at 45 Lakeview Lane that boasts five bedrooms, nine bathrooms and two partial baths. The home has custom walnut double doors that lead to a luxurious entryway and details like floor-to-ceiling windows, barreled and coffered ceilings, custom millwork and a glass-sided turret and porte cochere lend old world charm to the more than 17,000-square-foot home. A walkout on the lower level features a new home theater, a poker/billiards room and a full bar kitchen.
According to the listing every detail was created from the finest materials to create the feel of luxury in each and every room. “The main entry will have your jaw dropping as you step through the custom Walnut double doors into the massive formal entryway”, it states.
In 2014 the home was listed for sale by strip club owner Sam Cecola. According to Curbed, Cecola previously owned the Club Paradise strip joint in Las Vegas, but had to relinquish ownership due to legal problems involving tax fraud, and possible connections with the mob. The home originally listed in June of 2013 for a hard-to-swallow $15.9 million. The home was built in 2008. Property tax assessment in 2015 was $45,194.89.
The home located in Barrington Hills is listed at $9,950,000. To view the full listing and see all the photos of this beautiful home, click here.
