Thanks to an article in Crain’s Chicago Business yesterday we know that the house that Arthur Andersen built is up for sale.
A baronial home in Winnetka built in the 1930s by Arthur Andersen, an eminent figure in Chicago’s business history who founded one of the “Big Five” accounting firms, is for sale at $8.9 million.
Built in 1931, the house on Locust Road has a remarkable Tudor exterior marked by a towering chimney, gargoyles flanking the front door and an imposing overall look from its combination of limestone, brick and wood beams.
The nine bedroom, nine bathroom (seven full, two half), 9,673 sq. ft home at 44 Locust Rd in Winnetka, Illinois is down from its December 2009 price of $9,950,000 ($14,146,435 in today money). A steal, really.
Interior features include skylights, a screened-in porch, wet bar, and three fireplaces. Outdoors you have an in-ground pool, pool house, and tennis court. Zillow says the home underwent a major remodel in 2010. Property taxes are a modest $58,001 so if you’ve got a spare $9 million go for it. NO HOA!
