Sale of the Week - Winnetka mansion
List price: $3.775 million
Sale price: $3.55 million
The Property: This new 13-room mansion has six full bathrooms (plus two partials), six fireplaces, and six bedrooms; the master bedroom and two others are on the second floor, there are two more on the third floor, and the sixth bedroom is in the 3,300-square-foot basement-which also has a kitchen, a media room, a gym, and an exercise suite. The 304-square-foot living room has extensive millwork trim. Built of scrubbed brick, the house has a classic French ambiance, from its boxwood-lined front walk to its mansard roof. There is even a second mansard roof, with rounded copper dormers no less, atop the detached garage.
Pros: The house, which is served by New Trier High School's District 203, is perfectly situated in Winnetka, just a block from a Lake Michigan beach (for village residents only), and five blocks from the suburb's pretty little downtown.
