This just in— after 10 years, the home of beer baron Frederick Wacker, household name in these parts, has listed once again. Just in time for a new golden age in home brewing. The 1872 Italianate Victorian has 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and a detached coach house. The home (featured in the AIA Guide to Chicago) is filled with meticulous wooden ornament, studded with fireplaces, and has a deck, balcony and patio. Other indulgences include the 13' ceilings and four-car garage. The 2-story coach house provides an additional 1,800 sf hangout. Oh, and the $1.299M ask is down a dramatic $600K from the '01 sale price of $1.9M.
