The most expensive short sale I can find in Chicago is this duplex penthouse at Chicago Place, on the northwest corner of Huron Street and Michigan Avenue. The 5,509 square-foot, three-bedroom / five-bath home has been on and off the market regularly since 2007; last week, it was delisted and immediately relisted at $2.6 million.
According to Alex Zupancic‘s listing, the home has views in every direction, a custom marble entry, stairs with bronze railings leading to the second floor, two wood-burning fireplaces, a master suite with his-and-her bathrooms, a guest suite with a kitchen, a wine room and full wet bar, and custom oak floors throughout. Two garage parking spaces are included.
The home’s $4,935 monthly assessments heat, air conditioning, water, common insurance, door staff, cable television, exercise facilities, pool, exterior maintenance, scavenger, and snow removal. It’s 2008 tax bill weighed in at $42,309.
