It's tempting to classify this as a single-family home (the realtor did), but the reality is it's part of a larger building with a handful of gigantic townhomes. That being said, you won't often find a townhome with six bedrooms, six baths, and 7,500 square feet. Especially not in east Lincoln Park. Built in 2005 and listed in 2009 for $2.65M, it went off market for two years, re-listing as a short sale in April for $2.5M. Yesterday, the ask was lowered again to $2.18M. The living space covers five floors including the finished basement, with an elevator serving each. The interiors present an unusual medley of traditional and contemporary (take the library's stainless steel fireplace, for example). There's high ceilings, five fireplaces, two terraces, and an upper-floor master suite w/ office and dual walk-in closets. The lower level sports an exercise room, wet bar, sauna, and wine cellar. There's no yard to speak of (a trade-off of location), but those large terraces should suffice.
