Few neighborhoods impress quite like Chicago’s Gold Coast. With a convenient location close to top schools, hip restaurants, lush parks, and the lakefront, Chicago living doesn’t get much better than this. So we decided to highlight two Gold Coast gems. Each offers period charm and modern updates, but with price points that are a mile apart. Take your pick. The Queen Anne Splurge and the Browstone Steal await!
Splurge: Stunning Queen Anne In Heart Of Chicago’s Gold Coast For $7.499M
If it’s a turnkey Queen Anne mansion you’re after, then this one in the heart of Chicago’s Gold Coast will have you at hello. The 9,100-square-foot dream is dripping with architectural detail and luxury upgrades. This includes what the listing calls, “state-of-the-art infrastructure and a modern floorplan designed for entertaining and family living.”
We adore the intricate moldings and overscale windows streaming tons of natural light. And every room offers all the trappings of a historic designer home. You’ll have a total of seven-bedrooms and six-full-and-one-half-bathrooms. Plus, the master encompasses a full floor with spa-bath and dressing rooms. There is a recreation space with home theatre and game room, and the three-car-garage comes complete with a mudroom and gracious 1,250-square-foot apartment on top! And we love the lushly landscaped lawn and courtyard for easy outdoor entertaining.

Next up? A Brownstone beauty for half the price! This six-bedroom, four-full-and-two-half-bathroom gem sits on desirable Astor Street in Chicago’s Gold Coast. And it offers all the historic charm and designer appointments.
This includes elegant moldings, archways, and custom touches throughout. In fact, the light-filled property has been totally renovated! There is a gorgeous cherry library, new Viking custom kitchen, Carerra marble baths, and lower level living space with kitchen for an au pair. The real kicker however, is the private roof deck boasting spectacular city views!
