If you’ve always wanted to live next to Chicago’s mayor, now is your chance.

Lori Lightfoot’s next-door neighbor has listed her Logan Square house for sale — and it can be all yours for $1.15 million.

The home’s owner, Barb Carr, told Block Club Chicago that she moved to Florida last week, partly because of Chicago’s brutally cold winters.

“I’m not too fond of the crazy people putting their chairs in the street when they shovel their snow,” Carr told Block Club.

Carr’s house in the 3400 block of West Wrightwood Avenue is a two-story red brick house on a 7,000 square-foot, 50-foot-wide lot, according to the listing.

Built in 1900, the house has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a media room and a wine cellar.

Carr first listed the house in October at $1.399 million before dropping the price by almost $50,000 in February and taking it off the market in April, according to Zillow. Two months later, the house was relisted Thursday at $1.15 million.

Carr told Block Club the house has been in her family for 66 years, and that she took over the home in 1995 when her mother passed away.

In case you’d like to know what you’d be getting yourself into with Lightfoot as a neighbor, Carr said Lightfoot’s home has always been a “very nice and congenial place to be” and that the mayor has been a “master barbecuer” when inviting the neighbors over for parties.

“They have a really nice big backyard,” Carr told Block Club. “It’s just nice to hang out with friends in the summer, like everyone likes to do.”

Attempts to reach Carr’s real estate agent were unsuccessful.
