A 41-year-old single-family home and a unit in Related Midwest’s one-year-old condo tower propelled this week’s priciest residential sales past last week’s total.

The five most expensive home sales in Chicago added up to $13.4 million on the most recent list, about 45 percent over last week’s $9.2 million sum.

Single-family houses dominated this week, taking four of the five slots. Two of the houses are in Lincoln Park and two are in Lakeview.

A 54th-floor unit at Related’s ultra-luxury One Bennett Park on the Near North Side was the only condo to crack the list. In mid-March, a 4,800-square-foot unit on the 63rd floor of One Bennett Park sold for $6.25 million, which was a record-high sale for the year.

Price and property details were found on Redfin, from Aug. 1 to 7.
