There is no better time than the present to secure a serene sanctuary with one of these three Chicago dream homes.


1336 N. State Parkway


Enjoy five levels of thoughtful, detailed luxury living in this Gold Coast home. Previously known as the Playboy Mansion, the home has been carefully updated for today’s lifestyle. Exceptional care has been taken to protect the original architectural detail designed by James Gamble Rogers in 1914. Much of the home’s beauty flows from volume and light with broad hallways, spacious rooms, remarkable ceiling height and grand windows. With five bedrooms and plenty of gathering areas, this home offers comfortable moments for everyday living throughout.

“Historic elegance melds perfectly with modern sophistication throughout this updated and immaculately maintained 9,000-square-foot home,” says Timothy Salm. “Perfectly sited in the heart of the Gold Coast, this landmark residence offers a tremendous outdoor space including a rooftop terrace located off the stunning penthouse-level garden room.”
