It's hard not to lust after this elegant beaux-arts stunner by Benjamin Marshall. The posh East Lake Shore Drive building is home to a 3-bed condo with quite a volatile pricing history. After selling for $1.55M at the height of housing slump, it recently came back on the market with a considerably more optimistic ask of $2.3M. Wishful thinking? Maybe so, as it's already fallen victim to a substantial $400K reduction, bringing the price down to $1.9M. The interiors are equipped with some commendable vintage elements like crown molding, wood paneling, and a funky honeycomb ceiling. But the over-the-top traditional decor isn't doing the place any favors. Clocking in at 2,660-square feet, the home also features 10' ceilings, en suite baths, a library, limestone fireplace, chef's kitchen, and a butler's pantry. And HOA dues will run ya about $3,900 a month.
