Care to consolidate your long-standing and painful flirtations with the Gold Coast? Why not consider this 5-bed 1890 mansion rental on stately Astor Street? While you'd better have a sensible reason to shell out $11,500/month instead of looking to buy, you'll get all the trappings of the aristocratic life. For a spell at least. There's five-and-a-half bathrooms to go along with the five bedrooms, three fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen with attached "gazebo" eating area, and a walled courtyard filling in the extra side lot. Indications are it may just be a summer rental. Also, its status is listed as "contingent" but, if you're lucky, the agreement might fall apart.
