Chicago Mansion Gets Wet and Wild

Chicago Mansion Gets A “NEW” Indoor Pool

The Villa Taj, a $26.5 Million dollar mansion was recently discovered to have flooded with over 6 million gallons of water.  Located in Burr Ridge, this mansion had become a running joke, as it was never even lived in after being built.  It had since been on the market since 2009, and now no one really knows what is going to happen.

Villa Taj

Imagine all the imported Brazilian Cherry Woods, the Israeli gold limestone and Italian marbles, all rotting away under water for no one to ever enjoy.  Originally built by a dentist, many are wondering why the house was built in the first place.  Luckily, it appears the houses’ heated 20-car garage was empty.  It would have been even worse if an luxury rental car such as a Lamborghini Gallardo or Bentley GTC were rotting away under water along with the house. 

Flooded Car

To make matters worse, the water bill is estimated to be around $53,000 from this burst pipe.  Hopefully the bank won’t even notice the bill since they are already on the hook for over $20 million dollars.  Imagine Lifestyles Chicago branch thinks this is just further proof you should invest your money in cars, not houses.  Invest some money today in an exotic or luxury rental car from Imagine Lifestyles of Chicago and go cruise out to Burr Ridge and see this train wreck of a house firsthand.
