The Gold Coast has a glittering property on the market from a prominent citizen.
Kenny Williams, executive vice president of the White Sox, is downsizing. Crain's has reported that he and his wife, WMAQ-TV Ch. 5 anchor Zoraida Sambolin, are spending more time at their weekend home. And when you're happy in one home, you don't necessarily need another. And, as a result, it's time to release a singularly beautiful and spacious 1890s graystone.
The house has five bedrooms, six baths, and a rear deck that steps down to an artificial lawn (because that's more luxurious than caring for a real one). The interior is kind of, well, the epitome of elegance. Everything is neutral, proportional, and tasteful. Crown molding, grays, beiges, an textural walnut floors. Onyx in the bathroom. Very contemporary.
Designed by Tom Stringer, who lives in a 19th century Lincoln Park graystone himself, there's little surprise that the home is so strikingly appealing.
Amenities abound, including a study with wet bar (you can't properly study without one), a home theater, exercise room, and three laundry centers. Oh, but do bring your own elevator--there's a shaft, ready for its installation. A deeded garage space at 33 E. Cedar also comes along with this prize.
Tours are open for scheduling. Are you in?
