Actor Vince Vaughn is breaking up his Chicago triplex into two apartments and hopes to unload the property that's been on the market since 2011. Originally listed for $24.7 million five years ago, the separate parts seem like a relative bargain.
"The phone's ringing off the hook," says listing agent Katherine Malkin of Baird & Warner Real Estate. "There appears to be a much wider audience for apartments under 13,000 square feet."
The larger of the two units sits on the building's top floors and features three terraces, 14-foot ceilings, theater room, billiard room, and service kitchen for the patio area. The smaller unit is renovation-ready, with great views but no kitchen.
"At this price point, people do their own work anyway," Malkin informed us.
Vaughn has made a career of playing the adorable schmo who's unlucky in love. He starred with Jennifer Aniston in "The Break-Up," about a couple whose Chicago condo was the most valuable part of their relationship. The 2006 hit comedy grossed over $118 million domestically.
