Newly-listed Winnetka lakefront home asks $13.9M

At $13,900,000, the newly-listed 175 Sheridan Rd is only the second-highest priced home on the market in Winnetka, but it's asking nearly double the $7.1M for which it was purchased in 2005 and more than twice the highest-priced Winnetka sale in the last 5 years.

The home has undergone an award-winning renovation since it was purchased, and we'll let Cook Architectural describe it:

A 1920s’ estate on the shores of Lake Michigan underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and was transformed into an Italian villa worthy of the shores of Lake Como. Structural modifications allowed floors and ceilings to be raised, and plan modifications were made to provide vistas with views from room to room and improve the circulation.

Carved limestone, hand forged metal work, and custom millwork instill a classic elegance to this 17,000 sq. ft. Italianate home ...

Modern conveniences were also added to the house, including an underground garage that houses up to six cars, an elevator, his and her home offices, and a home theater with full bar.

Coldwell Banker's Maureen Mohling has the listing. Two years ago, on Mother's Day, I sat with Maureen at one of her listings and asked her advice about buying lakefront property in Winnetka. You can see our conversation in the above video.
