Wheaton’s highest-priced mansion is listed for $3.6 million


The six-bedroom, 11,528-square-foot French Provincial-style mansion in Wheaton was listed on March 7 for $3.59 million, and the owners are capitalizing on the recent surge in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin by offering to take full payment for the home in cryptocurrency. .

In recent weeks, prices of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have reached all-time highs, at least partly due to the SEC’s approval of Bitcoin exchange-traded funds in January and the subsequent launch of a number of Bitcoin ETFs.

Owners Joe and Laurie Meissner are willing to accept Bitcoin or another cryptocurrency for their Wheaton mansion. Listing agent Michael LaFido of eXp Realty said that, to his knowledge, this is one of the few homes not listed on either coast where a seller is willing to accept cryptocurrencies as payment.

“As someone who has worked in the professional trading community for over 25 years, I have seen the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies and their usefulness in financial transactions,” Meissner said in a statement. “My experience with these transactions made me comfortable accepting this form of payment for our home.”

Built in 2008, the mansion has 6-1/2 bathrooms, two custom-designed French limestone fireplaces on the first floor, an arched mahogany front door, a front terrace with travertine flooring and limestone-covered piers, domes, ornaments and tattoos. iron accents, vaulted and commercial ceilings, knotty dark walnut stained plank flooring on the first floor, antique encaustic tiles, and a kitchen with high-end appliances and granite countertops.

Other features include custom Romar cabinets, a dining room with Schonbeck crystal chandeliers, a music room and lower level with kitchen, exercise room, drum room, office and family room. Outside of the 0.61-acre property, there is an oversized two-car garage with radiant heated flooring, a detached two-car garage, a patio with a gas fire pit and DCS grill, an outdoor sunroom with heated lamps and travertine pavers, and an in-ground sprinkler system.

The Meissners paid $434,000 for a previous home on the property in 2005 and then razed that home to build a stucco-and-stone mansion.

The mansion had a property tax bill of $35,068 in the 2022 tax year.

The mansion is Wheaton’s highest-priced listing, with its asking price $500,000 higher than any existing Wheaton home has ever changed hands. LaFido stated that he believes accepting cryptocurrencies for payment would allow “a pool of potential buyers benefiting from the increase in the value of cryptocurrencies to use these assets to purchase a luxury home.”
