Large arched trusses enabled the owners of this Lincoln Park home to keep a very open floor plan on the main floor, including a 1,500-square-foot living room with 16-foot ceilings. (For a better look at the interior, check out Dennis Rodkin's recent visit for Deal Estate.) The place was once a factory, but you wouldn't know it from looking at the facade. The current owner bought the home for $2.7 million in 2002, but it has since been given a thorough rehab. The 8,600-square-foot home has been on the market since September, and it was recently reduced from $4.99 million to $4.74 million.
