Belden Avenue, Estate of the Day
As the Chicago Tribune reported recently, David Van Zandt, outgoing dean of the Northwestern University School of Law, is selling today's estate. Van Zandt is leaving to become the president of The New School in New York.
The six-bedroom home is a charming mansion in Lincoln Park, Illinois. The 6,300-square-foot home is on a double lot and has a small shady backyard. Van Zandt bought the home in 1996 for $922,500. The older home has been given a modern makeover that includes a contemporary eat-in kitchen with bamboo floors. Vintage rugs are combined with modern art and clean-lined furniture for a charming, spacious effect. This home is listed at $4.7 million.
