The Sun-Times reports the Highland Park home of Mickey Segal is on the market for $22 million. With grounds landscaped by Jens Jensen, the mansion features 7 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, a 4 car garage, and so on -- all of which sounds impressive in print. Black & white, though, is no match for full color. (NB: The listing's handy mortgage calculator indicates you need only have an annual income of $3.3M to qualify, assuming you're ready to put down 20%. Schedule your showing now!)
