And now the latest from Curbed Chicago, covering everything you need to know about the city's neighborhoods and real estate...
EVERYWHERE— We summoned a year's worth of celebrity real estate reporting to bring you our inaugural celeb real estate heatmap. The 16 lucky bastards featured within have been embroiled in some type of notable transaction in recent months. To all the other dormant Chicago A-listers, your Curbed day will come.
LINCOLN PARK— Almost certainly Lincoln Park's only Spanish Colonial home, this 4-bed has returned to market for $1.1M. Come admire the commitment to style: the wide-plank hardwood floors, stone tile patio, spiral staircase, rustic timber ceiling, lanterns, and—of course—faux-adobe facade serve as testimony.
STREETERVILLE— Can't swing Vince Vaughn's triplex penthouse? There's another high-floor option at The Palmolive for just $1.9M. Though it has a respectable 2,000 square feet, there's only one bedroom and one full bath. That oughta explain why it's being marketed as a pied-à-terre.
LINCOLN PARK— Another day, another gigantic Lincoln Park listing. This one has an exceptionally large price tag to fit the palatial getup. The 6,300 square feet of living space is drowned in Parisian vintage which "imbues the home with Art Deco/Nouveau atmosphere". We especially dig some of the expansive elements like the buxom conservatory affixed to the home's rear.
