This custom built 8000 square foot mansion at 2216 W. Grace in the St. Ben’s neighborhood of North Center just came on the market.
It has 4 bedrooms, 9 baths, and 3 half baths on a 125×30 lot.
It appears that the 2.5-car garage is still being built.
There also doesn’t appear to be any outdoor space but the buyer can breathe in summertime air on the rooftop terrace which, according to the listing, boosts a kitchen, a fireplace, and a hot tub.
In case you were wondering, the listing makes clear this home is in the Bell School District.
Check out the pictures of the curved stair atrium and detailed millwork.
There is also a custom kitchen with white cabinets, stainless steel appliances including a SubZero refrigerator, and what looks to be marble counter tops.
In addition to the 4 bedrooms, the house also has an exercise room, an office, a theater room, a sitting room and a maid’s room.
There is also an elevator.
