Sometimes more truly is more. Designed by architect L. Gustav Hallberg Sr. and built in the 1886 in the Romanesque style, this ornate stone mansion in the heart of Chicago's tony Gold Coast was once broken up into separate apartment units before being purchased in 1998 and ultimately renovated back to a single opulent residence. The finely finished home includes six bedrooms, nine-and-half baths, ten fireplaces, a large rear terrace, and a four-stop elevator.
According to Crain’s Chicago Real Estate Daily, the property was reportedly for sale as a pocket listing earlier this spring during which time agent Jennifer Ames declared that the home would not be appearing on Chicago’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS). This afternoon, however, it appears those plans have changed as the nearly 10,000-square-foot home popped up on the public market.
The new listing provides plenty of pictures of 1441 N. State Parkway’s previously mysterious interior — complete with lavish wall-coverings, detailed millwork, fine art, and canopy beds galore. The price remains unchanged at a whopping $8,750,000. After all, they don’t call it the Gold Coast for nothing.
