There is nothing wrong with the house itself, that's for sure. The Illinois mega compound was built in 1995 and boasts over 7 acres of land, 9 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, an indoor pool, a 3-bedroom guesthouse, a tennis court, putting green, 3 climate-controlled garages (each with a capacity of 12 cars), and not surprisingly, a private indoor basketball complex that features a regulation sized basketball court, specially cushioned hardwood flooring, competition-quality high intensity lighting and a professional sound system.
Here is a near 9-minute video showing a tour of the 56,000 square foot residence and offering a first hand look at some of the amenities included. For prospective buyers, the auction will be held on November 22. For more information, click the link below for the auctioneer's website.

935 Hillsboro Mile in Hillsboro Beach. The French architecture was designed by Randall Stofft Architects and has been under construction since April 2011. But was this mansion inspired by another famous mansion under construction in southern Florida? 90,000 square foot Versailles, currently being built on Lake Butler in Windermere, Florida, sports a somewhat similar look. Apart from the enormous size difference of the two mega-mansions, the two homes are very comparable. Here are some comparison photos of the two mansions and their similar features.
So what do you think? Was this new Randall Stofft designed estate influenced by the super-mansion Versailles? Or are the matching mansions just a coincidence? Post in the comments what you think, we would love to hear your opinions.
