With sale prices way up and inventory moving quickly, the Chicagoland real estate market is sizzling. We’ve compiled a list of the priciest properties, including stunning high-rise units and sprawling multi-acre lakefront estates.
When combined, the two 58th floor units in the Park Tower create an 8,000 square-feet home with unparalleled views in all four directions. Opportunities to entertain abound, including a chef’s kitchen that opens to a terrace with a wide lake vista, and a separate guest suite for visitors.
Located in the heart of it all, this 9,000 square-foot brick Georgian home has recently been renovated with top-of-the-line finishes in keeping with its historic character. The spacious five-bedroom manse also includes skylights, outdoor patios, and a private rooftop terrace with wonderful city views.
Luxury is a private beach, and this dwelling on five acres offers 425-feet of sandy Lake Michigan coastline. Renovated and restored in the late 1980s, the 12-bedroom estate boasts hand-carved architectural details such as limestone stairs, plaster relief ceilings, leaded glass windows, and 11 gorgeous fireplaces.
Bespoke wood paneling and exposed beams give this stunning landmark-designated house by Lindeberg and Adler a lovely English country feeling, albeit on a far grander scale. Outdoor terraces and a 50-foot swimming pool and spa make the most of the spectacular rural setting on seven-and-a-half acres.
Oversized arched double doors create a stately first impression for this handsome six-bedroom abode located just steps from charming downtown Hinsdale. Coffered ceilings and limestone fireplaces carry the traditional vibe into the interior, which has a contemporary open floor plan with French doors that open to professionally landscaped gardens.
