Sure, it may seem like a pittance when compared to the Notch’s $70 million LA pad, but Groupon CEO Eric Lefkofsky has purchased the most expensive house in Windy City history.
Lefkofsky’s new mansion, which looks more like a castle, is located in the upscale suburb of Glencoe. He paid $19.5 million for it, according to Chicago Curbed. It was sold last summer, but the Chicago Tribune revealed that the buyer is indeed the Groupon CEO.
The French-Normandy style home was built in 1917, but has “received major renovations, including an expansion that buffed up the size of the home to 15,800 square feet,” Curbed reports.
Gives new meaning to sweet home Chicago, especially with those views of Lake Michigan.
