This $3 million single-family home in the Southport Corridor can lay claim to having one of the city’s most unique bathrooms.
The 6,000-square-foot property is located at 1457 W. Addison St., just west of Southport Avenue, and a half-mile from Wrigley Field, says listing agent Michael LaFido, of CONLON/Christie’s International Real Estate.
The custom designed home, built in 2010 on a corner lot, has four bedrooms and five bathrooms, including a lavish marble master suite with a see through fireplace. The lower-level has a home theater, separate workout and recreation areas and a full bar for entertaining. It also has a Twister inspired bathroom with blue, red and yellow floor tiles that distinctly resemble the popular board game’s mat.
For the uninitiated, in Twister someone spins a spinner and calls out the body part and color the arrow lands on. For example, “Right hand, red,” or “Left hand, blue,” and so on until the players’ bodies are literally twisted on the mat.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind bathroom,” LaFido says. “The owners have played actual games of Twister there. They love to entertain and built it to be used at parties. They tell me it’s a hit. People love the novelty of it.”
The home’s other highlights include an outdoor, cobblestone terrace with a fireplace, kitchen and hot tub. “In the summer months, it’s the perfect spot to entertain,” LaFido says. “It’s like having your own urban retreat.”
