The Lincoln Park real estate market welcomed its newest seven-figure member last week when a five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home at 542 W Grant Place was listed at a whopping $9.25 million. The home was originally built in 1901 as a dairy distribution center, but underwent a major renovation in 2012 to bring it to its current condition.
The place has a bland brick exterior, which is ideal for a "don't rob us, we're not that wealthy" feel. Its interior, which was designed by local architecture firm Vinci Hamp, is marvelous.
The home boasts a spacious courtyard and three separate outdoor terraces. With 9,200 square feet of interior space, it's priced at a little more than $1,000 per square foot. The listing's most striking feature, though, is a massive metal sculpture of a giraffe chilling in the courtyard.
