Bargain Hunting Among Chicago's Mansions

Chicagoans break out your wallets: The prices of several area mansions are dropping.

Some of the nation's most-prized real estate properties are on the the sales block in The Windy City, led by a 26-room, 27,000-square-foot mansion, which even after a $4 million drop in price, is still the area's priciest.

Built on more than two acres in the affluent North Shore suburb of Winnetka, the chateau-style estate became the city's highest-priced residence when it officially went on the market this week, according to The Chicago Tribune.
