Actor Vince Vaughn has officially put his triplex Michigan Avenue penthouse on the market after unsuccessfully attempting to sell it privately last year.
Vaughn, who was raised in suburban Chicago, listed the 12,000-square-foot penthouse with an $18.4 million price tag late last week, the Chicago Tribune reports -- an amount drastically reduced from the $24.7 million he was reportedly shopping it around for last year, but still more than the $12 million he paid for it in 2006.
According to its listing, the condominium comes equipped with a top-floor screening room, billiards and game room, a large terrace with "breathtaking" views of the lake and city and even Hugh Hefner's restored Playboy office. (The 37-story Palmolive, built in 1929, housed Playboy's offices and was known as the Playboy Building from 1966 until 1989.)
The 5-bedroom-6-bathroom condominium is not the only real estate Vaughn owns in Chicago -- according to the Chicago Sun-Times, he's also been renting out a townhouse in the city's River North neighborhood.
Vaughn's listing has impressive company when it comes to recently-listed high-profile Chicago real estate. Part-time Chicagoan Oprah Winfrey's Streeterville condo recently was listed for $2.8 million and the unfurnished Trump Tower penthouse also hit the market for an astounding $32 million. The Donald Trump-owned condo is thought to be Chicago's priciest real estate listing -- perhaps ever.
The Winfrey condo went under contract last week.
