Jennifer Pritzker is selling four North Shore mansions, including two bed-and-breakfasts, as part of a restructuring of her company’s hospitality division.

The billionaire has already listed mansions at 30 Indian Hill Road in Winnetka and 2437 Sheridan Road in Evanston, and plans to put two more in Evanston on the market, according to Crain’s.

The homes going on the market later this year are the Stone Terrace Bed & Breakfast, 1622 Forest Place, and Stone Porch by the Lake Bed & Breakfast, 300 Church Street. Representatives of Pritzker’s Tawani Enterprises did not respond to questions from Crain’s about whether the homes will be sold as bed-and-breakfasts or regular residences. A press release said reservations at the two inns will be honored through Dec. 31.

The six-bedroom Colonial on Indian Hill Road is listed for $3.85 million, and the seven-bedroom Tudor on Sheridan Road is listed for $2 million. Their listing agents did not comment.

Tawani entities bought the houses between 2012 and 2015 for a total of $9.47 million.

Tawani’s hospitality unit, called Stone Heritage Collection, also operates two neighboring homes on Sheridan Road in Rogers Park. Those two, the Lang House and the Emil Bach House, which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, will continue to operate as rentals.

Pritzker, who retired from the Army in 2001 as a lieutenant colonel, is part of the Pritzker family of billionaires that includes her cousins Penny, the former U.S. Commerce Secretary, and J.B., the Democratic candidate for Illinois governor. She has a net worth of $1.93 billion, according to Forbes.

Tawani also owns other residential and commercial properties Chicago’s Gold Coast and the Loop. [Crain’s]John O’Brien
