Four Extremely Pricey Houses for Sale Around Chicago

The rising tide of Chicago’s real-estate recovery—the price of the median single-family home in the metro area has risen 16 percent since August 2012, to $197,500, according to the Illinois Association of Realtors—has lifted some boats more than others.

In the past year, a Michigan Avenue condo sold for $15 million, and a couple of Winnetka mansions went for more than $12 million each—two of only three houses in the leafy village ever to surpass that mark.

“When the market was worse, a lot of [sellers] held back,” says Linda Levin, a vice president of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty. “[Now] there’s more of a sense of confidence.”

Hence a recent wave of pricey listings, including the houses below.
