Uncovering Chicago's French Splendour

Spanning an unprecedented eight city lots in the heart of Chicago’s prestigious Lincoln Park neighbourhood, this majestic Burling Street estate might well transport you to a different time and place: 18th-century France. At 25,000 square feet, the residence is nothing short of palatial in its architectural detailing.

ITALIAN STONE CARVINGS AND ANTIQUE GARDEN ORNAMENTATION ENHANCE THE RESIDENCE’S ELEGANT LIMESTONE FACADE. 

With six bedrooms, eleven bathrooms (full and half) and all amenities for the most luxurious and efficient lifestyle, this home is ready to welcome a dynamic family and its many friends. Designed around mature and cultured landscaping, its well-manicured grounds feature a hand-forged pavilion; a reflecting pool; a 175-foot, reclaimed-stone garden wall; as well as carved-stone accents inspired by French architecture – a mixture of bucolic and classical elements rarely found in a major metropolis.

After the current owners purchased the land in 2005 – acquiring six-tenths of an acre, an urban enclave next to impossible to procure today – they set about constructing a magnificent property, as the residence’s elegant limestone facade immediately attests.

A ONE-OF-A-KIND ANTIQUE PAVILION ANCHORS THE ESTATE’S PRIVATE GARDENS.

Drawing inspiration from the Renaissance, sourcing the finest materials from around the world and paying attention to detail at every step, the owners ensured that this sun-filled mansion was as suitable for large-scale entertaining as it is for everyday living. Its inhabitants will enjoy multiple kitchens, an indoor grilling room and a wine cellar complete with a Louis XIII fireplace. 

Now listed at $50 million, the highest asking price for a residential property in Chicago, this masterpiece cannot be replicated anywhere in the Windy City. It truly represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
