1. 1140 W Monroe St – $5,650,000

What We Love: Talk about space! This home boasts a total of 15,000 square feet, with the first floor acting as a garage able to accommodate 15 cars, a casino room, and a bedroom suite. Need more? Head on up to the second floor where you’re greeted with 7,000 square feet of open space, so go ahead and pre-order that huge couch you’ve always wanted but never had the space for. Oh, and did we mention there’s a huge patio with a hot tub? Look no further, because your dream home has arrived.

2. 11 E. Walton St – $5,350,000

What We Love: Everyone loves a good view, and this one will not disappoint. You’re guaranteed to feel like you’re looking out over the ocean in California, but instead you get all the city fun of Chicago! With modern finishes and an exquisite walk in closet, this luxury apartment makes us feel like we’re on top of the world.

3. 60 E. Monroe St – $4,500,000

What We Love: Endless windows. Forget about watching TV, watch the hustle and bustle of the city-goers high above the ground! You’ll be able to catch every sunrise if you’re a morning bird and, not to mention, you’ll have a world-class view to the summer fireworks launched from Navy Pier. All the adventure of the city without having to leave home!

4. 1848 N. Paulina St – $3,675,000

What We Love: They always say history repeats itself, right? Well Mid-Century Modern is back, baby! the layout of this home is absolutely stunning, but our favorite room might have to be that wood-finished office with floor to ceiling views out into the tree-lined neighborhood. From the sleek stylings, brick accent walls and sprawling patio, this home is perfect to fulfill all your Don Draper party dreams. We can already see a Mad Men party happening!


5. 1257 W Wrightwood Ave – $3,290,000

What We Love: Don’t be fooled by this being last on this list. This is by far our favorite home on the market right now, and we only have one thing to say: decks on decks on decks! Sure, the inside space is magnificent, but it’s hard to resist an outdoor patio and extended deck, perfect for those stifling Chicago summer days. Kick back, relax, host your Cubs viewing party and take in Chicago’s outdoors in the comfort of your cozy neighborhood. Who says cities are all concrete jungles? This bungalow is sure to make you appreciate the greenery!

Bathrooms, Design

Lincoln Park Home has 4 Ultra-Cool Bathrooms

This Lincoln Park home has serious style. Located on Seminary Avenue, the 6-bedroom single family home is currently on the market — and beautifully appointed in tasteful and top-of-the-line finishes. Every room is eye catching, but we at Preview Chicago can’t help but notice: the bathrooms. Each of the four (and a half) bathrooms has a unique, chic design. Take a look for yourself…

The master bathroom features an oversized steam shower with dual rainfall showerheads — plus a freestanding Victoria + Albert tub enclosed within the shower. Pretty cool, right? The remaining bathrooms are noteworthy, too, incorporating marble detailing, intricate tile, industrial fixtures, and designer wallpaper.

Check out the chic bathrooms at 2245 N. Seminary Avenue:
