Living in a landmark – the Wrigley Mansion

The Theurer-Wrigley House, better known as the Wrigley Mansion, at 2466 N Lakeview in Lincoln Park, is currently for sale for $9.5 million, though not listed in the MLS. The home is a Chicago landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Earlier today I had an opportunity to take a video tour of the home with one of the owner's adult children, who has an intimate familiarity with the home's history and details – and the experience of living in one of Chicago's grandest homes and most attractive locations.

The home and its coach house span more than 16,000 square feet. It is, to quote an architect who was touring the home at the time I was there, "exquisite. One of the finest single-family homes in Chicago, untouched, with its original details. Priceless." My take on it is that, compared to many other mansions I've seen, this home is very livable and comfortable.

My tour was arranged by Koenig & Strey's Mary Bennett, who has the listing and who made available a disk with more than 90 Scott Shigley photos. Check in later at YoChicago for the video, and enjoy a few of the photos in the meantime.
