Chicago’s most expensive listing on the market appears to have finally sold, as its status has recently been updated to “Contingent.” A massive, 6-bedroom, 10.5 bathroom home that features a mind-blowing 20,000 square feet of living space, the residence at 1955 N. Burling Street in Lincoln Park has been one of the city’s priciest since it hit the market all the back back in June 2014.

Now over a year later, it appears a buyer seems to be in place for this immaculate Lincoln Park estate, which has acted as Illinois’ most expensive listing since a $20 million home listing in the Barrington area expired earlier this the year.

As Curbed pointed out, more expensive “pocket listings” have actually been available while 1955 N. Burling sat on the market, but of course it’s $18.75 million price tag has been the highest home publicly listed for quite some time.

Although details about the sale are not yet available, this certainly isn’t the only high profile property to have sold near the $20 million threshold over the last year or so. Back in December, the raw penthouse at Trump Tower sold for $17 million, setting a record at the time for Chicago’s most expensive residential sale ever.
