U.S. Soccer House, which has served as the federation’s headquarters since 1991, has officially been put up for sale.
For anyone hoping to snag a pair of 19th-century refurbished mansions in Chicago’s Prairie Avenue Historical District, the list price is $4.2 million.
The U.S. Soccer home base has actually been divided between two mansions: the Kimball house (list price: $2.3 million) at 1801 South Prairie Avenue and the Coleman-Ames house ($1.9 million) at 1811 South Prairie Avenue.
The listing calls the 14,734-square-foot Kimball house ‘one of the finest remaining examples of French Chateau architecture in Chicago,’ while also gushing over the 12,648-square-foot Coleman-Ames house, a brown sandstone mansion next door designed in the Romanesque Revival style.
The mansions were part of what was known as ‘Millionaire’s Row,’ an area that was once home to nearly 20 millionaires in a six-block radius.
The location is pretty prime: right in the South Loop neighborhood of downtown, near Soldier Field and three of the most renowned museums in town: the Field Museum, the Shedd Aquarium, and the Adler Planetarium.
Though the mansions have been used as office space for decades, the listing encourages the ‘next owner to impart ideas and create a magnificent personal residence.’
U.S. Soccer has moved its headquarters just two miles north to an office building in the North Loop, located at 303 E. Wacker Drive.
