Most Expensive

Chicago’s (2nd) Most Expensive property asks $22 million

Chicago’s “most expensive” list just gained a new contender.

Located on Lake Shore Drive, a historic property just hit the real estate market at $22 million — making it Chicago’s second most expensive currently for sale. Comprised of two structures, the offering includes a mansion and museum owned by the International College of Surgeons. These buildings represent two of the only seven surviving landmarked homes along Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive, according to Crain’s. After an unsuccessful effort to sell the mansion at 1516 N. Lake Shore Drive in 2016, the group decided to bundle the neighboring properties together.

For an asking price of $22 million, a prospective buyer would enjoy sprawling views of Lake Michigan and ornate architectural finishes, such as marble floors, grand staircases, and original plaster ceilings. For more information on 1516-24 N. Lake Shore Drive, contact Crystal Tran (312-368-5300)

Home of Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta listed for $1.8M

A certain North Side athlete’s home just hit the market. Chicago Cubs pitcher, Jake Arrieta, that is.

The six-bedroom home Arrieta and his family had been renting was listed for sale Wednesday, asking $1.799 million according to Chicago Tribune.

Built in 2015, the Lakeview home is located just northwest of Wrigley Field, and sits on an extra wide (30ft) lot in the Graceland West community. As tenant, Arrieta enjoyed all the finest finishes you’d expect in a new construction, like a sleek white kitchen outfitted in SubZero, Bosch and Wolf appliances. Additional features of the 5,000+ square foot house include: smart surround sound, radiant flooring, extensive millwork and carpentry throughout the three levels of living space. There’s also a welcoming front porch, back stone patio with a fireplace, and roof deck, all suitable for entertaining.

As Arrieta enters free agency, his offseason home is in Austin, Texas.
