WOW: Illinois Home is Backdrop for Crate & Barrel Summer Catalog
This home is just all the WOWS! An unbelievable $5.6 million dollar masterpiece on Glencoe, Illinois' historic Sheridan Road.
When you get your new July 2021 Summer catalog from Crate & Barrel, there's a reason you'll want to buy everything in it. How could anything look bad with this incredible home as the backdrop. And that is precisely what Crate & Barrel is hoping will happen.
This absolutely exquisite 11,000square-foot mansion at 655 Sheridan Road in Glencoe features everything. That's the only word I can come up with to describe its features. You'll soon agree.
Just reading all the things going in with this home was dizzying. The difference is that I'm looking at this listing fantasizing about owning it, I cant imagine being in a position to own this level of engineering and construction and deciding to take a pass.
WHAT MAKES THIS ILLINOIS MANSION SO SPECIAL
You try and get through this description from the online listing without getting a little woozy:
