We like to think we might have helped JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon finally sell his mansion on Chicago's Gold Coast. After all, since we posted it as our estate of the day back in July
there's been a flurry of attention about the lavish home and now after years on the market it has finally sold. The Wall Street Journal's Developments blog reports
that after a nearly 50 percent price drop the eight-bedroom home the mansion sold for an undisclosed price. The WSJ quotes listing agent Janice Owen as saying the unnamed buyer "saw that it was priced correctly and he went for it." Indeed it does seem that he got a bit of a deal, the mansion was priced at $13.5 million in 2007. It was most recently listed for $6.95 million. Dimon paid $4.68 million back in 2000 but hasn't lived in the home in recent years.
The eight-bedroom home was built in 1870 but has been lavishly adapted for the modern executive. The home is spread out over four stories and includes a 900-square-foot rooftop terrace outfitted with ample seating in both sun and shade. There is a second floor master suite, wine vault, an elegant gold and eggplant media room and gym decorated with sports memorabilia and crowned with a starry dome.
