This Chicago-Area Mansion is Over the Top in Every Way

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it'll certainly take a person who shares the same discerning eye love of all things flashy to find this mansion a buyer. Located in Northbrook (sorry, not South Barrington), this 8,000-square-foot home has received a complete overhaul and it's about as over the top as they get. Buzzwords sprinkled in the listing include: exquisite, flawless, superb, outstanding and elegant (among others). While many folks do dig the "opulent" look, it's hard not to scratch your head when flipping through the photos on this one and wonder what the owners were thinking. Everything is there too. Outdoor water fountain? Check. Marble cherub statue? Yep. Renaissance-themed ceiling murals? Oh yeah baby. The mansion anchors a 1.14-acre property, has an outdoor pool, tennis court and a three-car garage. It is seeking $2.2 million.

Curbed Chicago has all the photos. >>
