Home for the Holidays – Chicago, IL Edition

by Jiney ChoDecember 22, 2012

What makes Chicago, IL the second best city to celebrate the holidays? Find out in this home for the holidays in Chicago, IL.

Chicago brings in many visitors for the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival – a family friendly festival full of lights, music, shopping, food, and more. Your children will be delighted to know that Walt Disney’s Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be the grand marshals for this event.

Christkindlmarket is another popular German-American tradition celebrated in Chicago. If you’re looking for unique, eclectic, and handmade – make sure you get a chance to visit Christkindlmarket for items like cuckoo clocks, steins, nutcrackers, hot spiced wine and potato pancakes.

For a median price of $215,000, you could make these events a family tradition. For $4.5 million, you could make this wonderful Chicago house your very own home for the holidays. 12-13′ ceilings are available on all levels including the kitchen.

I love the centerpiece for this dining room. Can you imagine an intimate dining experience with your family here?

Don’t you think your kids would love their own little workshop room to cut snowflakes and decorate their room?

Do you need a private room to discuss the list of whose been naughty or nice? How about a family game room to play Trivia or Candy Land?

The dark and cool color scheme works very well for this elegant bedroom – the chandelier and accents really bring the whole room together as well. All that’s missing is a giant bow on the home with the “To” tag addressed to me.

Having family or friends visit? With 5 bedrooms and 4 baths, reserving a room for guests to stay is a great way to make them feel at home.
