2016’s Swankiest Sales So Far
Chicago never has a shortage of bougie home sales. Whether it’s a modern, new construction in Wicker Park, a victorian with original gables in Old Town, or a picturesque brownstone in Lincoln Park, we all love to gawk at these pricey pads. Check out our list of the top 6 sales thus far in 2016
(Note: Urban Dictionary defines bougie as “Anything that is perceived as “upscale” from a blue-collar point of view. ‘Bougie’ (pronounced boo’-she) is a hacked truncation of the word Bourgeoisie, which refers to the middle-class in Europe, but refers to a more affluent class level in the United States.” Sweet.)
