They were also taken with the house’s location, on Hinman Street with downtown shops and transit stations a few blocks west, Clark Street Beach a little more than a block east, and Northwestern University to the north. Their three kids “could get anywhere on their own,” Tucker said. “They didn’t need me to drive them to the orthodontist."
The house, Tucker said, “is very nice but it isn’t a museum, it’s a house to live in where you can flop down on a couch.” And to throw parties in. The couple have entertained dozens of family members at Thanksgiving, and even more politically active people, who come for political fundraisers where Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Rep. Jan Schakowsky and many others have spoken, often addressing guests from the landing beneath the leaded glass windows.
A partner with the Strategy Group, a campaign management and direct-mail firm for Democratic candidates, Giangreco has worked on campaigns for Senator and later President Barack Obama; U.S. Reps. Mike Quigley, Danny Davis and Bobby Rush; Minnesota Senator and former presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar; and many others.
With their three kids grown, Tucker and Giangreco plan to downsize out of the 6,100-square-foot house. They’re listing it tomorrow at just under $2.3 million. The AG亚洲国际游戏home is represented by Sally Mabadi of Berkshire Hathaway AG亚洲国际游戏homeServices Chicago.
