Barbie’s dream house – or at least a mansion that had a museum dedicated to the enduringly popular doll – topped all other sales in Will County last month, becoming the first property in the area to fetch more than $5 million.

Deals like the one for the $5.3 million Homer Glen home aren’t typically close to the price point of those in DuPage and Lake Counties. That home has a few other distinctions in addition to Barbie: the state’s largest residential pool and palm trees that have been flown in annually from Florida.

Other top sales in the area ranged from $1.3 million to $1.6 million, a narrower range than June, when the top five ranged between $1.06 million and $2.2 million. The data was collated by Zillow from information provided by Midwest Real Estate Data and doesn’t include off-market deals. Read on for thumbnails of the top five.
