It would be a dream listing: Unparalleled Victorian residence with three-stories, 19 chimneys and 30 rooms located in Chicago’s luxurious Gold Coast. Sophisticated red-brick construction with two-entry façades. Share a piece of history with renowned visitors like Pope John Paul II. Complete with a small chapel and 1.7 acres of priceless lakefront property.
Although 1555 N. State Parkway, the residence of Chicago’s Catholic archbishop, is not on the market yet, some real estate agents could not help thinking about what it might be worth. The speculation comes one day after Chicago’s newly appointed Archbishop Blase J. Cupich said he would not live in the mansion. Instead he will reside more modestly in a three-room residence at Holy Name Cathedral one mile to the south.
