CHICAGO — A seven-bedroom Lincoln Park estate covering five city lots is the city's most expensive single-family home on the market at $18.75 million.

Between the main building and the guest house, 1955 N. Burling St. has 20,000 square feet of interior space, according to Janet Owen of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff.

"There has never been a residence of this significance on the market," according to Owen's listing. "This is not just an estate, it is a lifestyle and far exceeds all expectations."

The seven-bedroom estate features an in-house movie theater with its own lobby, a six-car garage and a two-bedroom guest house.

Completed in 2004, the property also has a garden area south of the main residence that takes its design cues from the Dumbarton Oaks estate in Washington, D.C., Owen said.

An indoor swimming pool and spa are underneath the gardens.

"It's drop-dead gorgeous," Owen said.

The house has eight full bathrooms and five half-bathrooms. Curbed Chicago has more photos of the home's interior here.
