CONLON Lists Lakeside Mansion for $2.5 Million

CONLON/Christie’s International Real Estate is selling a lakefront mansion in west suburban Plainfield for $2.5 million.

 The 10,789-square-foot elevator residence is located at 13238 Wood Duck Lane in Plainfield, on the banks of Lake Walloon.

The asking price is $2.5 million – no other residential property in Plainfield has sold for more than $2.2 million and only one home has sold for more than $2 million, says listing agent Michael LaFido, of CONLON/Christie’s.

“This home is a cut above the rest,” he says. “It belongs in a design magazine, with its contemporary style, panoramic lake views and luxurious details.”

The four-bedroom home even comes with a pontoon boat.

Other highlights include a gourmet kitchen with Travertine tumbled tile floor, two dishwashers, two ovens, custom cabinets and a commercial gas range.

The large master suite features a raised sitting area, fireplace with granite surround, beautiful bath and over-sized walk-in closet.

In all, there are three laundry rooms, a four-car garage, five full bathrooms and two half baths. The lower level has a beautiful wet bar with built-in fish tank, hot tub, steam/sauna with waterfall, theater and glass-enclosed wine room.

The backyard has a fire pit, outdoor bar, sports court, wet bar, in-ground pool and direct access to the lake.

“It’s the perfect space for entertaining,” LaFido says. “It’s like having a country club in your own backyard.”
