This vast European Country property in Barrington Hills, Illinois includes 70 acres of land as well as a superb 11-year-old brick and stone manor that flaunts unmatched luxury and sophistication. The estate goes by the name of Hidden Ponds - a name that was not chosen randomly. Indeed, the property features a number of concealed ponds, a beautiful lake and an English Pub with its own wine cellar.
The residence itself boasts 30,000 square feet of space and impresses with a large fireplace, Brazilian hardwood floors and a Gentleman's library with a hidden panel that offers access to a stunning master suite. Other highlights include a formal dining hall, a gourmet kitchen, a waterfall, a lap pool, a spa, a state-of-the-art gymnasium and a massage room. There's also an elevator that ensures easy access to all floors, a garage that's large enough for a collector, and three golf greens.
The price for all of this magnificence? No more than $18.7 million.
