A sprawling seven-bedroom Naperville mansion, listed at $10.5 million, has gone under contract, which could make it a record-breaker
If the sale surpasses $8.1 million, it will set a new benchmark in DuPage County, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Lauren Dayton of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty represents the seller, Thomas F. Harter Sr., a former Navistar executive.
Constructed in 2017 by homebuilder Dave Knecht, the Tudor-style residence at 1112 Shamrock Court spans 21,700 square feet on a 2.5-acre lot. It has nine full bathrooms, three half bathrooms, leaded casement windows, and eight fireplaces.
The home also features a great room with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and French doors, a kitchen with dual islands and modern appliances.
Additional amenities include a hearth room, a library with custom wood built-ins, and a primary bedroom suite on the main level, complete with a custom turret, and wet bar.
Entertainment options on the lower level include a sports bar, a movie theater, a fitness room, billiards room, and a private spa. The home also features a 3,000-bottle wine cellar.
Outdoor amenities include a bluestone patio, outdoor fireplace, gas fire pit, pool, infinity spa, and pool house.
It’s far from the only big-ticket Chicago-area home to hit the market recently.
Last week, former Chicago Cub Kerry Wood and his wife have listed their Georgian Revival-style mansion in Winnetka for $8.5 million.
Jena Radnay of @properties has the listing.
Wood, known for, among other things, striking out 20 batters as a rookie in a shutout against the Houston Astros in 1998, pitched for the Cubs from 1998 to 2008 and returned for his final two seasons. He is currently a Cubs Ambassador and was recently elected to the team’s Hall of Fame.
The Woods bought the three-story mansion in 2019 through an off-market transaction, using an Illinois limited liability company.
Built in 1902 for railroad executive Charles I. Sturgis and designed by architect William Otis, the mansion boasts a curved red brick perimeter wall and wrought iron gates.
