One of Washington Park’s most expensive home sales closed last week.
The three-story modern home at 600 S. Franklin St. sold for $3.66 million on Aug. 6, according to county records. That tops a home a few blocks away that sold for $3.3 million in 2016.
Georges Saad, owner of Forte Distinctive homes, scraped the previous 1920s duplex to make room for the new contemporary build that features a third-story patio overlooking the Washington Park lake and boathouse.
“It’s a very high-end, super modern house,” Saad said. “The location is one of the very unique corner lots.”
