It was a busy week for the Near North Side, with four out of the top five resi listings in city located in this neighborhood. Two Park Tower condos made the list, alongside a Gold Coast single-family homes with an interesting backstory, if not history (you’ll see what we mean).

Price and property details were found using Redfin.

1241 N. State Pkwy | $6.5 million | Near North Side

A property that once housed one of the last remaining brick cottages just hit the market, asking just a hair under $6.5 million. The seller paid $1.5 million to acquire the property in 2016, and quickly demolished the historic old brick house, which dated back to 1872. In its place is a brand-new six-bedroom, seven-bath mansion spanning nearly 7,500 square feet. The home, situated on a 3,300-square-foot lot, includes a four-car garage, a yard and two rooftop terraces. It’s certainly fancy, if not quite steeped in history anymore. The home is listed with Timothy Salm of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty.

The only top listing not located in the Near North Side is this property, a six-bedroom, 6.5 bath single-family home in Lincoln Park. According to public records, the seller bought the home in 1992 for just $275,000. That’s a retirement plan right there. Anyway, this 6,800-square-foot home sits on a 2,900-square-foot lot and features custom millwork, a curving staircase and a roof deck with views of St. Michael’s and downtown. It was listed by Kathleen Bill and Julie Sachs Capp of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Koenig Realty Group.

Ten floors below listing #3 in the Park Tower is this three-bedroom, 2.5-bath condo on the 23rd floor. With northern and eastern exposure, this 3,200-square foot space has a kitchen and deck that overlooks the lake. It was listed by Sharon Glickman and Randi Pellar of Baird and Warner.
