Once again, the rich can get richer.



A house that’s on sale in the Northwest Chicago suburb of Barrington, IL has a current list price of $1,149,000. That number used to be $350,000 higher when the abode went on sale back in 2011. The kicker – and the reason we care even a little bit why a 6,800 square-foot McMansion is on the market – is that the owner is including his soon-to-arrive Tesla Model S with purchase. Technically, the seller seems to be wanting to transfer his 300-ish Model S reservation number. Sure, you could just discount the price of the home by $50,000 or $70,000, depending on battery size, but where’s the fun in that?



The house (see the listing here) was built in 2001 and comes with an acre or land. It is described as having:

Wide open floor plan with granite, stainless, and maple kitchen w/ viking range and commercial hood. Hardwood floors throughout much of the home. !st flr. Theater, office, and sun room! Dining room is perfect for large dinner parties. All bedrooms with private baths and walk-in’s. luxurious master suite with sitting room, and high end master bath with vaulted ceilings, cherry cabinets, and marble. Huge deck.

If that all sounds good to you and you have a million dollars to buy a house and think you should get a free luxury EV, give it a go. The seller says, “All reasonable offers are considered.”
