$2.85M Omaha Mansion Is a Playful Space, Chock-Full of Wild Decor

Some homes are simply better than others if you need to stay home. Take this mansion on S.189th Circle in Omaha, NE.

Loaded with entertainment spaces and designed to display collectibles, the huge, five-bedroom home has 12,515 square feet of indoor space. Built in 2004, the place is now on the market for $2.85 million.

More than 2,300 of those square feet were part of a recent addition to include a display garage and indoor sports-court space. The current owner is a car and motorcycle collector. Sadly, none of the treasures on display in the home’s listing photos are included in the price.

“It will all go with him. It’s all very near and dear, and he locks it up when people come through,” says the listing agent, Stacey Childers-Reid.

She added that potential buyers sometimes spend more time peering at the collectibles than the house itself, which includes many unique features.

The entire home is constructed from wood, glass, stone, and metal.

“Industrial-modern is kind of how I would describe it,” Childers-Reid says. “There are some modern elements to it, like the tilework and the cabinetry with the flat fronts.”

Elements like the steel and concrete fireplace lend an industrial look.

The kitchen also fits the aesthetic.

“It’s amazing. The backsplash is wood, with a row of stainless-steel strip through it. It looks really cool,” she says.

The appliances are all stainless, including a double oven, warming drawer, and double refrigerator.

In a twist that oenophiles will love, the dining room was converted into a wine room.

It’s a room designed for imbibing your favorite adult beverage in supreme elegance.

“When you come in the front door,” says the agent, “they wanted something more interesting. Wine bottles line glass walls, and the ceiling is wood, like a wine barrel would be.”

The kids’ bedrooms are designed for the owners’ four boys, and the kids were top of mind in the design of amenities like the outdoor pool featuring a 35-foot water slide. For adults, the outdoor area includes a kitchen, fire pit, and plenty of room for entertaining.

The indoor sports court has three basketball hoops and a regulation three-point line.

“It has a real wood floor, which is pretty rare, so when you bounce the ball, it feels like real gym floor,” Childers-Reid says.

The walls are strong enough to absorb any shock from a basketball and also muffle some sound.

“You can shut that part of the house off by the glass doors,” the listing agent explains. “Could you probably hear it if you were right next to it? Yeah, but if you’re in the kitchen, you probably couldn’t.”

Sports court

There is a workout area near the sports court, as well as many areas to watch the action.

“It’s kind of a hangout area,” Childers-Reid explains. “You could sit up there and watch your kids play basketball, or you could work out.”

Part of the area has clear floors that allow folks to peer down on the lower level.

You can see right down, with a clear view of the owner’s Maserati and GT.

The home also has a lower level, which opens up to the pool area and has a bar, theater area, and plenty of space for a pool table or other diversions. Large glass doors can be opened, creating an indoor/outdoor entertaining area.

“It’s beautiful. The curb appeal is amazing, the lot is great. It’s just such a great family house,” Childers-Reid says.

Fired Harvest Bible Chapel Pastor James MacDonald Selling Custom-Built Home for $1.6M

James MacDonald, the former pastor of the Harvest Bible Chapel megachurch, has listed his Elgin, IL, home outside Chicago for $1.6 million. The post Fired Harvest Bible Chapel Pastor James MacDonald Selling Custom-Built Home for $1.6M appeared first on Real Estate News & Insights | realtor.com®.

Fired Harvest Bible Chapel Pastor James MacDonald Selling Custom-Built Home for $1.6M

James MacDonald, the former pastor of the Harvest Bible Chapel megachurch in the Chicago area, is trying to sell his well-appointed Elgin, IL, home.

The co-founder was cast out of the church in February 2019, after recordings of him making “highly inappropriate” comments surfaced. MinistryWatch reported that the mansion first came on the market in March, for $1.9 million.

At the end of May, the price on the 10-acre property was cut to $1.6 million. That means the formerly well-compensated leader of Harvest Bible Chapel is willing to take 15% less to move this home off his books.

In a 2017 sermon on money, MacDonald preached, “You will never be living in victory financially until you spend less than you make. Live on less than you make.”

The property is located about 4 miles from the church’s Elgin campus, one of the church’s seven campuses in the Chicago area. Even with the price cut, the custom-built home far exceeds the town’s current median list price of $250,000.

Completed in 2015, the custom-built home features five bedrooms, 5.5 baths, and 5,250 square feet of living space.

The listing details note that the expansive space offers “designer finishes throughout.” The ample use of wood in the residence gives it a rustic vibe. Other design features include exposed timber beams, an antler light fixture, and candelabras.

The airy layout includes a sun-filled, two-story, timber-framed great room, with wide board flooring, a wood-burning fireplace, and custom cabinetry. 

A gourmet kitchen includes a pantry, high-end appliances, and a breakfast nook. In addition, the layout features a formal dining room and an office with built-ins.

Located on the main level, the master retreat includes a den, walk-in closet, en suite bath, and a workout room. The suite includes a private porch with a hot tub.

Upstairs, a grand, curved staircase leads to a loft, library, three more bedrooms, and two bathrooms. 

On the lower level, more entertainment options abound. The walk-out basement space includes a kitchen/bar, game room with a billiard table and shuffleboard, and a tiered theater room that has movie-style seating with drink holders.

The grounds boast an outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and extensive landscaping, with gardens and trees as well as a koi pond and waterfall.

Other amenities include state-of-the-art security and a sound system.

“All you have to do is move in,” the listing description states.

MacDonald, 59, founded Harvest Bible Chapel in 1988, and expanded his parishioner base from a couple of dozen people to well over 10,000. His daily Bible-based program, “Walk in the Word,” was broadcast on television and radio from 1997 to 2019. He’s also the author of over 15 books on religious topics.

Wincy Mathew with @properties Arlington Heights holds the listing.
