Mind Your Manor

Appears in the September 2022 issue.

With construction and finishes that took more than five years to complete—and which listing agents Kim Marino and Katie Minott of @Properties Christie’s International Real Estate liken to the attributes of a grand European estate—Shamrock Manor (1112 Shamrock Ct., Naperville), on the market for $10.5 million, is certainly something to behold. Beyond the scale of the castle-like turreted brick-and-stone exterior, the more-than-two-and-a-half-acre lot is something of a jaw-dropper itself, featuring lush landscaping and dramatic hardscapes surrounding a 20-by-48-foot in-ground pool, hot tub, fire pit area, and outdoor kitchen. 

And things don’t get any less impressive once inside the custom-crafted doors of the 21,000-square-foot manor. The seven bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms ensure plenty of space for guests, while the lower level offers endless entertainment and relaxation options, including a bar, wine-tasting room, 3,000-bottle wine cellar, 17-seat movie theater, pub, and billiards room—plus a full spa with lap pool, hot tub, sauna, and steam room. “This is a property for someone who is looking to invest in a legacy,” Marino says.
