'Batpool' Home in Hinsdale, Ill., Is a 'Batman' Fan's Dream (House of the Day)
Haven't yet caught the new "Batman" flick "The Dark Knight Rises"? Why not feast your eyes instead on this $2.55 million Hinsdale, Ill., mansion
that has a luxury swimming pool stamped with Batman insignia. It's known across the country as "the Batpool."
Apparently, this is something of a trend. We've also spotted Batman-themed suites
, a Batcave-themed theater
and even a Batman bathroom
. (Thanks to our friends at Realtor
for the tips)!
Even without its famous Batman pool, the home itself holds plenty of attraction: classic English-style architecture, elegant detailing, lush gardens, a tennis court and one incredible gazebo.
Built in the Chicago suburb in 1932, the home features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, generous living and entertainment spaces, and is built on 1.7 acres. See if you can spot the ode to the Green Bay Packers in the gallery below!
