In case you weren't convinced that Wicker Park hasn't turned into a bourgeois, stroller-filled neighborhood over the past decade, this insanely expensive home should change your mind.
The four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 7,000 square-foot mansion is a block away from the crotch (that terrible intersection that's sometimes incorrectly called "Six Corners") listed for $3.95 million earlier this week. It was built in 1874, and looks every bit like a Victorian-style pad. It has a wine cellar, an art studio and a master bathroom big enough to house a small army.
The price hike since it last hit the market is pretty telling as to how much Wicker Park has changed over the last 10 to 15 years. In 2003, it sold for $1.39 million—now it's asking price has more than doubled. Take a look at the pictures below to see what a few million bucks can get you in the continuously popular 'hood.
