Are you the type with wads of cash and no dependents? Then these rentals are for you! Short-term luxury engagements are what we're talking about. The selection above is the most flamboyant of our pics. Built in the 90s, this Lincoln Park 4/4.5 offers up over 5,000 sf, big European-style gardens and a disorienting concave design with a rotunda. White as white can be, the symmetry of this mansion extends to the front trees and plantings. Comes with all that old decorative stuff and a few pieces of more comfortable-looking furniture. The family room has either a greenhouse-design or is attached to a greenhouse, the language is unclear. Asking exactly $10,000 in rent.

The Skinny: A 5-bed, 5.5-bath Old Town spectacle of a building, this place has ready-made maid's quarters and a restaurant-scaled kitchen that's sure to accommodate all your demands for service.

Listing: 1739 N Mohawk St. [The Wilcox Company]
The Skinny: Custom built in the 90s for "Chicago's top developer", this four-story Lincoln Park limestone mansion has plenty of gaudy touches. That won't deter the right buyer from enjoying the 6,000 sf of opulence, from the walk-in closets and stone fireplaces to the roof deck. Once again, the basement is fixed for live-ins or guests. $10K/mo.
