If you have $2.6 million you can own this penthouse condo in the South Loop of Chicago. Not only does it have a terraced outdoor space, it has a lawn.
You can see more pictures and information on the listing at Koenig & Strey.
When my wife I were first married, I told her I never wanted a house with a yard bigger than those in the bungalow belt in Chicago, the kind you can cut with a push mower with a few brisk walks across the lawn. Instead, we have a house on a plot that’s about a third of an acre with many trees. It’s nice and pretty and there is a lot of space for the kids to run around. But it’s also a lot of lawn to mow.
I suppose though that if you can afford a $2.6 million penthouse condo unit, that you can afford to pay someone to care for your rooftop lawn. I’d install a hammock of some kind. Laying around in my hammock reading with the Chicago skyline and Lake Michigan as my backdrop would be quite soothing…I’d better go buy some Lottery tickets!
