A sprawling six-bedroom, eight-bathroom Chicago penthouse just hit the market for $13.5 million, making it one of the most expensive residential properties up for sale in the city—but that's not even the most impressive part. This penthouse has probably one of the wildest features in a home ever that I can't seem to get over—the entire living room can actually rotate a full 360°.
“It rotates very slowly, approximately one rotation every 30 or 40 minutes, so no one really feels that it’s happening,” listing agent Tim Salm of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty told Curbed. “But you get a bit of a surprise whenever you look up as you’re not quite sure what you’ll see outside the windows.”
Along with this insanely fun feature—I mean how cool would it be to take a nap and then wake up in a completely different part of the room?!—the listing boasts an enormous 8,880 square feet and a 1,135 square-foot terrace with picturesque views that overlook Lake Michigan. To top it all off, the penthouse includes a walk-in glass wine cellar. So when can I move in?
The home was listed by its current owners, Bruce White, CEO of White Lodging, and his wife Beth, who first purchased the property back in 2005 as an unfinished space and turned it into this incredibly luxe listing. Their listing agent Tim Salm revealed that they're aiming to relocate back to their Wyoming ranch—sans rotating living room, alas.
