The average rent price for a three bedroom River North
condo is $4,050.Â The desire to live in posh condos and high-rise apartments draws renters and their checkbooks to the ritzy 60611 zip code.
The area is also known to house celebrities like Oprah, Jerry Springer, and Kristin Cavallari.Â But if you want to do one better than just spot a celebrity, think about renting from one.Â Vince Vaughn, the Hollywood A-Lister best known for roles in Wedding Crashers and The Breakup, has again (for the third time) listed his 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom townhouse for a steep $9,500 a month.
Vaughn, 43, paid $1,425,500 for the town home in 2005 yet hasnâ€™t lived in the unit since late 2006.
While not spending time in Los Angeles, the Lake Forest native opts for the more pricier and desirable of his Chicago real estate locales â€“ residing in his $12 million triplex penthouse atop the Palmolive Building.Â The 5 bed, 6 bath penthouse has extra special amenities in the 12,000 square feet such as a screen room, billiards, and Hugh Hefner's restored playboy office.
On June 28, Vaughn listed the 4,063-square-foot River North townhouse with agent Liane Pruchnik of Koenig & Strey.Â With association fees on the luxury Chicago property
costing the actor more than $11,000 a month, itâ€™s no wonder the property is listed at $5,500 more than the average area asking price.
The high price tag does afford features such as a home theater, an additional four flat screen TVs, hardwood floors throughout, fireplace, a massive kitchen, 3-car garage, and a rooftop terrace with some remarkable city views.
The asking price may be close to $10,000, but over the past three years Vaughn hasnâ€™t managed to find renters who will pay more than $7,000.Â What would you be willing to pay to rent the uber-famous comedianâ€™s pad?
