    Default Jennifer Hudson's new home in Illinois

    http://bossip.com/505438/celebrity-c...burbs30346/12/

    Congratulations to Jennifer Hudson! The Chicago singer has reportedly purchased a new home in the burbs.

    Dennis Rodkin (aka Mr. Deal Estate) broke the news that Jennifer Hudson has entered contract negotiations for this gargantuan new construction home in Burr Ridge. Curbed matched up stats to locate the listing. Custom built in 2006, the owner immediately placed it on the market for $4.2 million. It’s been on-and-off the market ever since.

    Carried by Diana Ivas of Re/Max, the most recent list price was $2.795 million. Deal Estate reports that the home went under contract last week, but a final sale price has yet to emerge. As you can see, the mansion is built in the timeless ‘I-wish-I-were-royalty’ Mediterranian-villa style. It stands at 12,000 sf (you can always build-out, Jennifer) with six bedrooms and seven baths. There’s a home theater, a billiards room, a Lennon-esque white piano, a library, bar, five fireplaces, and heated floors. The near-acre of property includes a 6-car garage! At least 33% cheaper than the 2006 asking price, J-Hud stands to land herself a real deal.































    I'm happy for her considering what she's been through, but this house has no personality at all. I like the bathroom and kitchen, but that's it. Hopefully it'll be redecorated.

    It's way overdone, but I do like the dark wood floors.

    it may be in suburbia but it looks like a cardboard château - way overdone, way tacky, way ghetto. all that's missing is a moat.

    I like the inside, except for the white piano - blech. Love the kitchen.

    It's not so much a McMansion, more like a McCastle.

    I'm still confused on how is the home ghetto, or way ghetto even? Crass, tacky, tasteless, but ghetto??

    ghetto: A part of a city, esp. a slum area, occupied by a minority group or groups

    The projects is a ghetto, a shabby inner city neighborhood may possibly be a ghetto.... A cheesy over-done home isn't a ghetto or should I say ghetto!!

    ghetto? Ooops. I know you are the harbinger of good taste and all but your use of the word "ghetto" is seriously lacking this time, especially since a search of the Home & Garden forum shows you have NEVER used the word before, McMansion, yes. Ghetto, no. I hope you can see how it would be considered just the tiniest bit offensive.

    A tad McMansionesque, but I don't mind it so much.

    I'm mad for floors like that. I like the kitchen cabinets too.
