The host of “Windy City Rehab” is relisting her Bucktown home after it was briefly part of a legal battle tied to the television show.
Alison Victoria Gramenos is asking $2.195 million for the home on North Paulina Street, according to the Chicago Tribune. The home has five bedrooms, an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven and a two-car garage.
The designer and television personality first listed the property in September 2020, but took it off the market late several weeks later when the plaintiffs in a fraud suit against her tried to block any potential sale of the home.
Homeowners James and Anna Morrissey sued Gramenos and her former partner Donovan Eckhardt over a renovation done to their $1.36 million Lincoln Square home as part of the HGTV show, of which Gramenos is also an executive producer. The plaintiffs sought a temporary restraining order on the sale of Gramenos’ personal home, saying they were concerned she was trying to shield her assets in case they won the suit. A judge denied the request in October and settlement discussions have begun, according to the Tribune.
It’s not the only legal trouble facing Gramenos and Eckhardt. In another suit last June, plaintiffs alleged that the two ran a “deliberate and fraudulent scheme to misappropriate” $3 million in funds they poured into seven projects. Other suits brought by former clients have been dropped.
