Jennifer Hudson returned to her hometown of Illinois by buying a 12,000-square-foot mansion in suburban Burr Ridge for $2.795 million. The 38-year-old star got a 33% discount from the house’s original price of $4.2 million. The house boasts six bedrooms and seven baths with a castle-like appeal due to its massiveness. It is described to be a majestic estate, which was custom built in 2007. The home featured a spiral, floating staircase, two laundry rooms, and an in-house screening theatre. It also had Brazilian cherry flooring throughout the house, which was said to be a significant change from her simple roots on Chicago’s South Side.
