This beautiful Beaux Arts-style mansion located in Chicago was constructed in 1899 by a notable doctor as a wedding gift to his daughter. At some point in its history the home was purchased by Hugh Hefner who also purchased an adjacent parcel to create a Playboy Mansion Compound. Hefner has since sold the property and the two parcels of land with their homes have reverted back to two separate properties. The Beaux-Arts style home has been lovingly restored by the current owners, Jack and Julie McGinley, through the help of their designer Gail Plechaty. The home is regal and sophisticated but at the same time feels warm and welcoming. It’s tranquil, calm color scheme is something that suits this mansion perfectly. It’s definitely a place I could call home.
