Winnetka Gem’s Views, Tax Bill Enough to Take Your Breath Away

How could anyone get any sleep with this view?

There’s a Winnetka house that just hit the market with views of Lake Michigan from every room, a price tag of $6.4 million and a tax bill of more than $88,000 a year.

The lakefront property, located at 1133 Taylorsport Ln., Winnetka, sits on just over an acre of land in a private enclave above the ravines along approximately 230 feet of sandy beach.

It's like vacation living in Winnetka!

The three-story contemporary home has five bedrooms and six bathrooms scattered on each floor, a library, den and sitting room, cathedral ceilings with skylights, a balcony, gazebo and roof deck, four fireplaces, hardwood floors throughout most of the house and an attached, four-car garage.

The home, which recently underwent an extensive renovation and is agent owned, made Chicago BlockShopper’s list of top 100 property taxes in Cook County. The tax bill on the property was $88,435.08 in tax year 2008.

I have to imagine that the view is worth every penny.
