Bill and Giuliana Rancic are on the move. The Apprentice alum, who scored a gig working for Donald Trump back on the show’s first season, and the E! correspondent just listed their fully-renovated Chicago townhouse for $6.8 million- well over three times the $2.1 million they paid for it back in 2013. No wonder Bill won the show- he knows a good deal when he sees it!
The five-bed, seven-bath historic row house was originally built in 1866 in Chicago’s Near North Side neighborhood. Renovated down to the studs just over two years ago by Rancic himself, the 8098-square-foot townhouse features soaring ceilings, heated floors, and five luxurious bedroom suites. A stunning chef’s quality kitchen is bright and welcoming with slabs of Calcutta marble, multiple sub zero refrigerators, and two full-height wine coolers, while the large island offers a great gatherings space for the family. The entire third floor is taken over by the extraordinary master suite, where a 15-foot cathedral ceiling and two-story dressing and bath room are the picture of luxury. The deep soaking tub is the focal point of the spa-like master bath, a relaxing oasis in your own home. The lower level features the ultimate entertaining area, with a full bar and state-of-the-art media room with wood-paneled walls and three large built-in TV’s, the epitome of A/V sophistication. French doors lead out from the main floor family room to a beautiful back deck, which is sure to be the spot for barbecues and viewing parties, thanks to the outdoor fireplace, kitchen, and large-screen TV. There’s also a spacious roof deck, which offers stunning views of the city and the lake.
