Rosie O'Donnell's Chicago Home Sells in One Day

There's no real estate market problem for talk show host Rosie O'Donnell, who just sold her 6,000 square-foot Chicago home in a single day.


The brick house, located in the Lakeview neighborhood of the city, had a listing price of $2.5 million and went under contract on Tuesday, as recorded by MLS.com.

O'Donnell bought the 12-room house late last fall from OWN President Erik Logan for $2.25 million. The closing date on her sale has not been publicly announced.

The New Yorker previously told the Chicago Tribune that she felt the home was too large because her children were only visiting there on weekends. Her listing agent, Janelle Emalfarb-Gordon of Koenig & Strey, divulged, "She said, 'I don't need this big of a house. She also said, 'I wish I could take this house to New York with me."

"The Rosie Show" host bought the home in Lakeview after she launched her Chicago-based talk show last year. The beautiful city home has 11-foot ceilings, millwork, custom cabinetry, five full baths, two half baths, a sports bar, a home theater, an outdoor space specialty designed patio, a 2,000-square-foot roof deck, and a heated three-car garage.
