A Lincoln Park homeowner is moving on fairly quickly after making one of the neighborhood’s priciest purchases of 2022, relisting the property for $8.2 million this week.

The home was previously owned by Chicago lumber scion Harry Seigle, who sold the property for $8.1 million in March 2022. The 8,700 square-foot home was designed by Dirk Lohan, the grandson and apprentice of famed architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

The property is now the fourth-priciest listing in Lincoln Park, home to many of the city’s top sales and the most expensive listing in the Chicago area: a $29 million ask for a Burling Street mansion, which had its asking price chopped early this year from a whopping $45 million.

It’s unclear who is now selling the Mohawk Street property, as it was purchased under a title company that shields the owner’s identity from public records, or why they are selling so soon after buying the house. Julie Harron with Jameson Sotheby’s Int’l Realty is representing the listing and did not respond to a request for comment.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom property includes a four-story Miesian floating staircase, and a terra cotta interior, as well as an 1,100 square-foot roof deck. Lohan is known for continuing the mid-century modernist work of his grandfather, and the house reflects that style. The exterior has a glass and stone facade and the interior includes high ceilings and a large foyer with travertine marble.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate broker Phil Skowron represented Seigle the last time the home sold and previously told The Real Deal that the house is on a double lot; that as well as the size of the house are hard to come by. The property was sold on the private market without being publicly listed.

Southeast Lincoln Park is one of the most exclusive parts of the affluent North Side neighborhood. Skowron said it would be hard to replicate the house at the price it last fetched.

Seigle purchased the land for $1.5 million in 2006, according to property records.

The market conditions have changed substantially since the home last sold, meaning it may be a greater challenge to land a buyer, as interest rates have risen and the luxury market has slowed.
