Vince Vaughn's Chicago Penthouse!Must SeeTop 10 Florida Condos For Sale
Vince Vaughn: actor, screenwriter and producer grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago and is well known for his support of Windy City sports - especially the Cubs, Blackhawks and nearby Notre Dame Fighting Irish. His first movie role after TV stints on China Beach and 21 Jump Street was as the annoying third-string quarterback and bully nemesis of Rudy in the 1993 movie that launched Vince’s film career. Although his early work was mostly straight rolls including The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Return to Paradise, his agent had a number of comedy clients and Vince sort of fell into the genre. Some of his most popular hits have each grossed over $100 million in U.S. box office including The Internship, Wedding Crashers, Starsky and Hutch, and The Break Up with former girlfriend Jennifer Aniston.
Now age 45 with over 40 movie roles and two-time host of Saturday Night Live, Vince is switching type cast this year by moving to cable television with Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams in HBO’s successful and moody True Detective. It will be his first major non-comedic role in almost 15 years. Back to film, his next movie role will be a remake of the James Garner character in The Rockford Files. Vaughn’s validation as a Hollywood star was recently cast in concrete in front of the Chinese Theater on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Joining in the ceremony were his wife, two children, pals and co-stars from some of his many films.
As a family man, Vaughn has a nice collection of family-oriented real estate in the Hollywood Hills and Manhattan Beach in California. However, when he was a bachelor back in 2006, he sunk his money into an iconic residence in Chicago that was originally Hugh Hefner’s Playboy headquarters from the mid 1960s through the mid 1980s. Located in the landmark Palmolive Building in Chicago’s Gold Coast area near Lake Michigan and the Magnificent Mile, the 12,000-square foot, five bedroom, five bath penthouse bachelor pad includes the top three floors of the 37-floor building. The lowest floor is devoted to the master suite and four other bedrooms. The second floor entry foyer opens to the formal living area, dining room and a kitchen with Verenna cabinetry, a butler's pantry, two built-in Sub-Zero refrigerators and a Wolf double oven and stove. The top floor is devoted to entertainment with media room, billiards and game room and a full bar. Hugh Hefner’s original office is also located on the top floor. With 360-degree views around the lake and city, there are also multiple terraces, one of which has an additional outdoor kitchen for family enjoyment or entertaining guests. For more information.
Vince Vaughn’s historic and iconic Chicago bachelor pad penthouse, formerly owned by Hugh Hefner, was originally priced at $24.7 million, now priced at $13.9 million.
