1547 N. Dearborn, Chicago IL

For those in search of the utmost in luxury and opulence, 1547 N. Dearborn Parkway fits the bill.  This mega-mansion dates back to the early 1890’s, one of the most prized properties in all of Chicago’s pricey Gold Coast neighborhood.  It is also the most expensive home in the area.  Currently listed at $13,750,000, this incredible mansion includes just about every added feature a buyer could imagine, with plenty of historical tributes, as well. 
 
The 18,600 square foot home includes an impressive 12 bedrooms and 12-baths, along with a cherry-paneled library, conservatory and enough parking to hold at least eight vehicles.  There is also a beautifully adorned ballroom, along with seven wood-burning fireplaces located on the first floor alone.  With crystal chandeliers and built-in cabinetry, the dining room is simply breathtaking.

Owned by philanthropist Ann Lurie, the manor is three stories high plus a basement, a Queen Anne style home with windows allowing sunlight in from every direction.  Carefully restored to its grand beginnings, the limestone estate includes original period stained glass and delicately carved woodwork.  A mosaic tile fireplace compliments the modern appliances and fixtures now housed inside.
 
Other impressive features of the home include the commercial quality catering kitchen and even a separate guest apartment, including its own full kitchen.  A full sized elevator provides some relief from climbing the stairwells, although there are plenty to choose from.  The front stairway is perhaps the most picturesque, though there is also a back stairway and spiral stairway on the exterior of the home. Beautiful hardwoods stretch throughout the estate with towering ceilings and hand-carved moldings.
 
On the outside, lush and mature landscaping surrounds the palatial home, with iron fencing.  Tucked inside you will find a large, private garden and brick pathways leading to the property’s coach house.
