Wow House: Sheridan Road Mansion Features Elevator and Private Beach

319 Sheridan Road is currently listed for more than $16.7 million.

From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally-friendly abodes, the North Shore is chock-full of one-of-a-kind homes.

Each week, Patch will feature one ‘Wow House’ that caught our attention. This week, a nearly three-year-old lakefront mansion caught our eye.

The 1.5-acre property, at 319 Sheridan Rd. in Winnetka, is home to a 15,000-square-foot mansion, with seven bedrooms and more than eight bathrooms. Special features include a wine cellar, two wet bars and an elevator. Plus, who could forget the personal beach and view of Lake Michigan? In case you might, there's a pool with a cabana, fire pit and wood deck to remind you.

Milena Birov at @properties is handling the listing, and she can be reached at (847) 962-1200 or Milena@atproperties.com.

If I win the lottery I would buy it and convert it to low income housing. Winnetka would love that!

So, it's 3 years old & never occupied? Hmmm, seems this family run developer/builder/realtor /etc. may not have much of a future if this was their specialty niche.

So, THAT'S what this faux French chateau sells for!! I drive by it every day from Wilmette to work, and was beginning to wonder about that ostentatious atrocity...er...luxury castle would sell for (or what Heritage Builders wants for it). I'm glad the builder hasn't left their footprint in Wilmette yet...but Wilmette probably isn't "nouveau rich" enough for them. It's still a cheap construction---I've seen the tacky Tyvek walls when it was built. I'm from Europe, and it would be unthinkable to have flimsy construction like that.

This house has been occupied from the day it was built, and for a niche property like this, it sold in a heartbeat. Not sure where the misinformation is coming from. You may not like huge luxury homes (although the home is gated and completely hidden from the street, so it's hardly an eyesore), but they sell. There's a reason Heritage was unaffected by the recession. If you really have a problem with this, you should probably take a look at the town you're living in. The North Shore's reputation exists for a reason.
