A Lincoln Park homeowner who moved quickly after purchasing one of the priciest properties in the neighborhood in 2022 is relisting the property this week for $8.2 million.

The house was previously owned by Chicago lumber heir Harry Siegel, who sold the property in March 2022 for $8.1 million. The 8,700-square-foot house was designed by Dirk Lohan, grandson and apprentice of renowned architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

The property is now the fourth-most expensive listing in Lincoln Park, home to many of the city’s top sales, and the most expensive listing in the Chicago area: the $29 million Burling Street mansion, whose asking price was slashed earlier this year from up to From $45 million.

It’s unclear who is selling the Mohawk Street property because it was purchased under the name of a title company that protects the owners’ identities from public records, or why they are buying the house It was sold so soon after. Julie Harron of Jameson Sotheby’s Int’l Realty, which represented the listing, did not respond to a request for comment.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom property includes a four-story Miesian floating staircase, terracotta interiors and a 1,100-square-foot roof deck. Lohan is known for continuing his grandfather’s mid-century modernist work, and the house reflects that style. The exterior has glass and stone facades, and the interior includes high ceilings and a grand foyer with travertine marble.

@properties Christie’s International Realtor Phil Skowron, who represented Seigle for the last sale, previously told real deal The house is on a double lot; that and the size of the house are hard to come by. The property is for sale on the private market without a public listing.

Southeast Lincoln Park is one of the most exclusive parts of the affluent Northside neighborhood. Skowron said it would be difficult to replicate the house at the last price.

Seigle bought the land in 2006 for $1.5 million, according to property records.

Market conditions have changed dramatically since homes were last sold, meaning attracting buyers could be more of a challenge as interest rates rise and the luxury market slows.
