Inside Bill and Giuliana Rancic’s Chicago Home

Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood is home for Bill and Giuliana Rancic. The celebrity power couple known from E! News, The Apprentice and RPM restaurants live in a beautifully restored brownstone with their 5 year-old son, Duke.

The Rancics purchased the home in March 2013 for $2.125 million, with many of its original pre-fire Victorian features in tact. Since then, they have undertaken a series of renovations to modernize and personalize the home, located at 105 E. Bellevue Place. The couple enlisted interior designer, Lonni Paul, to transform the space in a fresh, blue-and-white focused palette.

Bill Rancic grew up in nearby Orland Park, IL and always had sights of moving back to Chicago with Giuliana to raise their family.

“This city has everything to offer, including a community of people with strong Midwestern values,” Bill says of his hometown, and especially their neighborhood, within walking distance of shops, their restaurants, and Lake Michigan. “We knew the family who lived here before, and they put a great vibe in this house that we hope to continue. We’ve always had one foot here, and now we have two. Finally, we’re home.”

Ex-Blackhawk Lists Lakeview Mansion for $3.199M

Days after his trade announcement, former Chicago Blackhawks player Niklas Hjalmarsson has listed his Lakeview home. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion is now on the market, asking $3.199 million.

Hjalmarsson was a three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Chicago Blackhawks, and was recently traded to the Arizona Coyotes, ending a decade-long career in the Windy City.

The former Blackhawk purchased 3821 N. Wayne Ave in April 2015, paying $2.32 million for the new construction home. Hjalmarsson and his wife subsequently purchased the neighboring three-flat for $900,000, demolishing the building to use the parcel as a side yard, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The 4,600-square-foot residence features a brick and limestone exterior, with upscale finishes throughout the interior.
