If you've been looking for a great place to live and willing to shell out some serious bucks there's a good chance you're going to have to live in Chicago or the surrounding suburbs.

I hopped on Realtor.com to find a single-family home for sale that isn't in the city or suburbs like Winnetka, Highland Park, Elburn, or Lake Forest.

Needless to say, I had to do some serious scrolling through all the listings when on the third page of homes I found one that wasn't in either.

Located all the way down in Morris, Illinois, I found a crib that's a shade under $4M that looks like it actually belongs in Chicago or the burbs.

That's because this place is an absolute monster.

Located at 7320 Saratoga Road, complete with 6 beds, 6.5 baths, and nearly 16,000 square feet on a 30-acre lot, you and the fam or you and your friends will have plenty of room to roam.


This exquisite property features a heated indoor pool and spa with a retractable roof, and sundeck. From lazy summer days at your own pool and pavilion to hosting Holiday celebrations, there is nothing else like this on the market. This home was designed to offer the epitome of luxurious living with a unique eye toward family living.

This place originally went on the market in November of 2020, at $4.5M and was then removed in April of 2021. It was listed again at a lower price point in July removed a second time and relisted yet again less than a week ago. Long story short, it looks like the seller is ready to move on this house.

Take a look inside this place. If you want a Chicago or suburban Chicago-styled home without having to live in the city or burbs this place is an absolute can't miss.
