Well, it is official, Rosie O’Donnell has a home under contract in Lakeview. Crain’s Chicago Business reported this basic info, including the fact that the home was listed for $2,500,000 and that the owner was a Harpo, Inc. executive. Well, with a few seconds on google and other sources I was able to narrow down the exact home on W. Grace street that appears to be her new home. The home went under contract on 9/12/2011 for an undisclosed price but Rosie did tell studio audiences that she is buying the home with all the furniture in it. It will make for a nice easy transition for her.
Now, you might remember Rosie O’Donnell was also looking at other properties as well, including Trump Tower which she received heat for due to her ongoing feud with “The Donald.” She also viewed a unit in one of Chicago’s newest buildings, The Elysian.
It appears her new home is not only fully furnished, but boasts a home theater, sports bar, 2000sf rooftop deck, plus 11ft ceilings. The home, boasting over 6,000sf also has 4 bedrooms on the second level. Many single family homes in Chicago are built on narrow lots, forcing builders to split bedrooms up. 4 Beds on the same floor is a definite plus and a great selling point. Check out some photos below of the interior of the home that appears to be the one Rosie is buying. Welcome to Chicago & The North Side Rosie. Maybe we will see you out at the bars!
