Most expensive house in Chicago


The 20,000 square foot Chicago mansion was built over 5 continuous plots of land. It has 6 bedrooms, a home theater, and indoor pool and spa.

After initially being listed for a city-topping $ 18.75 million a year and half ago, the mansion at 1955 N. Burling Street in Chicago’s Lincoln Park has finally sold, according to Curbed.

The final sale price was a sharp cut off the original listing at $ 13.345 million.

The 20,000 square foot mansion was built over five continuous plots of land. It has 6 bedrooms, a home theater, and indoor pool and spa.

Even though the final sale is much less than the original ask, the house is still one of the most expensive in Chicago this year, second only to George Lucas’ $ 18.75 million condo purchase, according to Curbed. Here’s the beauty of a house.

1955 N. Burling Street in the Lincoln Park section of Chicago was once the city’s most expensive listing.

It’s a hugely grandiose house, with an incredible number of rooms filling its 20,000 square feet spread over five continuous lots.

That includes a high number of sitting areas, including family rooms and formal living rooms.

There’s also a full library, paneled with rich dark wood.

The kitchen was done in a Tuscan style, and includes a full breakfast bar.

The kitchen is also eat-in, but there’s an opening to a patio for dining al fresco.

The formal dining room sits off the kitchen.

A butler bar sits under the stairs.

Upstairs, there’s space for a home office.

There are 6 bedrooms in total, including the ginormous master suite.

The master bath even has skylights.

The rest of the bedrooms are large, too.

Each has their own style, and many have en-suite bathrooms as well.

In lieu of a traditional yard, the home has sculpted gardens.

The landscaped gardens on the grounds around the home are both beautiful and expansive.

There are multiple seating areas to spend some serious R&R time outdoors.

There’s also a two bedroom guest house on the property.

It’s built in the same style as the main house, with all the comforts of home.

For recreation, there’s a full bar with space for a billiards table on one of the upper levels.

However, the indoor pool is the real crown jewel of the home’s luxury amenities.

There’s even a poolside cabana lounge.

But the ornate home theater certainly gives it a run for its money.

As does the spectacular view of the Chicago skyline.
