A kind reader notified me that the gorgeous home gracing the cover of Traditional Home, October 2015, and featured on The Glam Pad is now for sale! Built in 1914, this Beaux Arts-style mansion located in Chicago’s Gold Coast was once owned by Hugh Hefner. Formerly known as the Playboy Mansion, the current owners have restored the home to perfection. Filled with Old World details from high ceilings to ornate plasterwork, designer Gail Plechaty worked her magic, bringing a timelessness and breathtaking grandeur to the architecturally rich interiors.
The historic home features five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, four partial bathrooms, and over 9,000 square feet. There is also tremendous outdoor space including a fabulous rooftop terrace located off the stunning penthouse level garden room. Let’s take a tour with images from the real estate listing and photography by Werner Straube for Traditional Home. Also, you won’t want to miss the virtual tour at the bottom of the post… Enjoy!
