3. The third priciest sale of the week is a splendid contemporary row home overlooking Washington Square Park (aka Bughouse Square). The 5,500-sqaure-foot property has four beds, four-and-a-half baths, five floors, five outdoor spaces (two roof decks, two terraces, and a patio), and an elevator. As if that wasn't enough, other niceties include walk-in closets, tiled foyer, enclosed porch, skylights, and fireplaces. Listing last September for $2.399M, final close was for $2.3M.

2. This Greystone mini-manse in the Gold Coast has undergone a textbook facadectomy, having been recently rebuilt from the ground up with the old facade stitched in place. Hey, you wouldn't do that unless you had to. The end product is a pretty sharp upscale four-bed with five-and-a-half baths, three outdoor areas, a huge kitchen, skylit stairwell, and a separate garden apartment. Listing for $2.575M in October, $2.425M is the actual take-home. Not bad.

1. This just-constructed luxury Lincoln Park single-fam, built on spec, just sold for $2.475M— the biggest fetch of the week. Tipping the scales at 6,000-square-feet, it's also our largest. "Ready for walk-through" upon its September listing, we still only get this generic rendering. Ooh, how mysterious. The listing conveys some of the spoils, however, like the six bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, third-floor rec room with terraces, basement family room w/ wine cellar, custom kitchen w/ breakfast nook, and a three-car garage. Get to know it, you're probably looking at the future of Lincoln Park.
