Celebrity Real Estate: Chicago Mansion Serving As Lucious Lyon’s Residence on Smash Hit "Empire" On Market

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Audiences around the globe tune in regularly to keep up with the drama gripping music mogul, Lucious Lyon, and former wife Cookie, sons, and to close the must see third season, guest star Demi Moore.

An enduring backdrop to the plot line is the main character’s elegant residence, a home befitting a fictional record company executive or any company executive, for that matter.

The home is offered by Conlon & Company, the exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, for $9,950,000.

“Empire” season three was no doubt the most explosive yet with rivalry and jealously threatening to destabilize the Lyon family’s musical business.

 

The head of the family - Lucious Lyon played by Academy Award nominee Terrance Howard - unveiled his new album ‘Inferno’ and this was a metaphor for the season with a host of cameo appearances including Mariah Carey, Snoop Dogg, Nia Long and Rumer Willis. Demi Moore is pictured here in the home and with the celebrated cast.
