The grandest yard in the Gold Coast

A private yard the size of the one pictured above is an almost unimaginable treasure in Chicago’s Gold Coast. The south yard of 1547 N Dearborn Pkwy, however, is only a sideshow to the much larger and far more interesting scene to the north.

The north yard is a lush and lavishly landscaped oasis. If one were so inclined, there appears to be enough space to accommodate a private tennis court and a 50-foot long in-ground pool flanked by greenery.

Also on the nearly half-acre lot is an 18,590 square foot French Renaissance limestone mansion boasting 12 bedrooms, 12 ½ baths, a 6-car garage and 4 additional on-site parking spaces. The home is listed for sale at $18,750,000 with Koenig & Strey‘s Mary Bennett and Jim Kramer.

Check back next week for a video look at the grounds of 1547 N Dearborn Pkwy.
