Luxury home sales continued to pump the brakes this week, as the five priciest properties collecting a mere $7.9 million combined.

The year started off strong, with the top homes selling for a combined $12.1 million during the first week of January, followed by a combined $10.5 million last week.

All five of this week’s priciest homes are located on the North Side. The top four are single-family homes, only one of which exceeded the $2 million mark.

Price and property details were found on Redfin, from Jan. 17 to 24.

3644 N. Bosworth Ave. | $2.14 million | Lakeview
Whoever shelled out more than $2.1 million for this new five-bedroom house will be the first to live in it. The home is located in family-friendly Southport Corridor and as such has plenty of outdoor space, including a back patio, a wood burning fireplace and garage rooftop deck. Rena Trapani of Dream Town Realty had the listing. Compass broker Jill Silverstein represented the buyer. The seller paid $725,000 to acquire the property in 2018, according to property records.

1710 N. Burling St. | $1.65 million | Lincoln Park
Built in 1985 and rehabbed in 2012, this five-bedroom house clocks in at 4,700 square feet. It previously sold for almost $1.9 million in June 2006, before the rehab, and appears to have had trouble selling since it was put on the market in April 2017. It was listed with Mario Greco of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago and purchased with John Berdan of Berdan Real Estate. Another home down the street topped last week’s list, with a $2.6 million price tag.

1834 W. Larchmont Ave. | $1.445 million | North Center
This nearly 4,500-square-foot home has six bedrooms, plus a deck off of the family room and a garage rooftop deck with a pergola and astro turf. It previously sold for the same price in June 2011. Joelle Cachey Hayes of @properties represented the seller and Burt Fujishima of Coldwell Banker Residential represented the buyer.

2051 W. Grace St.| $1.35 million | North Center
At 4,200 square feet, this three-year-old home has five bedrooms, four fill bathrooms and two partial bathrooms. It also has three outdoor spaces: a back porch roof deck and patio. The first owner paid almost $1.5 million in June 2016. It was most recently listed with Compass broker Anne Marie Bonness and purchased with Rachel Vinson of Charles Rutenberg Realty.

180 E. Pearson St. #3606 | $1.3 million | Near North Side
This three-bedroom, three bathroom-room condo is the only property to make this week’s list that’s not a single family home. It’s located on the 36th floor of the residential tower about Water Tower Place. The home spans almost 3,000 square feet and was listed by Amanda McMillan of @properties. The buyer’s broker was Michael Rosenblum of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago.
