Jennifer Hudson is America's favorite dream girl, and it looks like she has found herself a dream home. The Oscar-winning actress is closing a deal on a lavish mansion in the Chicago suburbs of Burr Ridge, Ill. The 12,000-square-foot home was up for sale at $2.8 million, reports Chicago Magazine.

If the 30-year-old songbird buys the home at the selling price, she's getting a phenomenal bargain. Originally, the sellers were asking for $4.2 million but J.Hud negotiated a worthwhile deal for the property. "It’s an over-$3 million house,” says realtor Diana Ivas of Re/Max Elite. "[The final sale price] was a fair price for both parties."

Looking at the photos posted on RadarOnline, the mansion is a gorgeous place of residence. The six-bedroom, seven-bath home has marble floors, a white grand piano, a screening room, two laundry facilities and beautiful green spaces.

This would be a lovely home for Hudson, her hubby, David Otunga and their son David Daniel Otunga Jr. She certainly can afford it after just wrapping up two high-profile flicks: 'Winnie,' the autobiography of Winnie Mandela, and the comedy 'The Three Stooges.'

We wish Hudson and her family the best on their new home.
