And we thought Le Grand Reve had fallen on hard times. How 'bout this 5/5 Lincoln Park contempo, also embroiled in a nightmarish scenario? The star-crossed home first hit the scene over five years ago at a lofty $3.95M. When we caught up with it in 2011, the original ask had been decimated by a litany of price drops totaling some $1.2M. After cycling on and off the market, it's back yet again, this time with another major reduction. Set on a extra wide lot, the 8,000-square foot beast of home immediately locks us in with a voluminous two-story living room. We're also really into the solarium and two-tier outdoor wonderland. Other comforts include a custom staircase, two fireplaces, eat-in kitchen, and a jacuzzi tub. The ask? $2.395M.
