For anyone looking for a mansion on the shores of Lake Michigan, two options just opened up on the same block if you have $14 million to spend.

The homes, located at 505 and 595 Longwood Avenue, are both listed through a private network, the Chicago Tribune reported. The mansions are the only ones on the block listed for more than $10 million.

The 8,329-square-foot six-bedroom home at 505 Longwood Avenue is listed for $14 million. Built in 1992 and updated in 2019, the home sits on a 2.39-acre property with a private beach. There are eight full bathrooms, a wine cellar, custom bars, hardwood floors throughout, a primary suite with balcony, an exercise room and a sauna. The property also has a swimming pool outside that overlooks the lake.

Andriyous and Layla Youkhana are the builders and owners of the home, which briefly hit the market in November 2019 at $12.5 million. Jody Dickstein is the listing agent.

Farther north, the 3,830-square-foot home at 595 Longwood Avenue, is asking $13.8 million. Built in 1970 on a 1.64-acre lot, the contemporary-style home has seven bedrooms and four full bathrooms.

These homes are some of the latest luxury properties in Chicago’s North Shore to be listed at $10 million or more. Last month, a Lake Forest home that was once owned by the widow of filmmaker John Hughes went under contract after being listed for $15 million. In Winnetka, billionaire Justin Ishbia paid $16 million for a six-bedroom mansion in July while two other seven-bedroom homes sold for $12.75 million and $11.25 million later in the summer.
