At $18.75M, Chicago's Priciest Home Officially Hits The MLS

New, 24 comments

This super-sized mansion became Chicago's most expensive home last month when it was quietly listed for a whopping $18.75 million, but now the bonkers North Burling Street estate has been formally listed on the MLS for all eyes to see. A few new details, and some new images have emerged in the listing as well. Previously, we knew that the large Lincoln Park estate included a guest house and multiple gardens, but to put it in perspective, the entire thing takes up five city lots. Built in 2004, the size of this six bedroom, eight and a half bathroom home is listed at 20,000 square feet. However, we aren't entirely sure if that accounts for the space of the guest house as well. Included in this gargantuan manse is an indoor swimming pool, a library, a theater room that looks like a miniature version of an actual movie theater, and a six car garage. The broker babble in the listing states that, "this is not just an estate, it is a lifestyle and far exceeds all expectations." A space in the Trump Tower remains the city's most expensive property, however this Burling Street manse has dethroned all other single family homes in Chicago for the title of the city's most expensive at $18.75 million.
