WICKER PARK — A century-old home on Wicker Park Avenue that underwent an extensive gut rehab under the direction of its owner and HGTV "Kitchen Crashers" star Alison Victoria is priced at $1.5 million.

Located at 1519 N. Wicker Park Ave, Victoria's home went on the market Wednesday, according to real estate agent Sophia Klopas, who is selling the home for the interior designer and host of the long-running  "Kitchen Crashers" show.

Victoria could not immediately be reached on Monday.

Klopas said she cannot say why the TV personality is selling the home, but said "someone will be very lucky to live there. It's fantastic."

Built in the early 1900s, the brick 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home was bought by Victoria in 2012 for $315,000, county records show.

Originally built for a jeweler, the home has three closets, including one in a walk-in vault, Victoria told Crain's in 2014.

On HGTV, Victoria talked about her experience renovating her own kitchen. "Picture a mishmash of melamine cabinets, dated tile, and scratched-up butcher block. It had zero personality," she said.

The home's renovated kitchen features white cabinets, a custom-built island with drawers, bookshelves, and built-in microwave storage, according to HGTV.

Victoria recently added a new shingle roof.

In a 2013 interview with Michigan Avenue, Victoria said she enjoyed living in Wicker Park.

"I love the life it has. I walk out my front door day or night and people are walking around, playing in the park, or heading to lunch at Big Star [around the corner at 1531 N. Damen Ave.] Wicker Park is the perfect balance of hipster bliss and family life — if there is such a thing," Victoria said.
