We usually have a lock on debased luxury here at Curbed, particularly when it comes to smaller neighborhoods like Kenwood whose local real estate climate seemingly shifts on the sale of one or two whoppers. This newly-built 5/4.5 mansion fits comfortably in that category. Listed in May for $3.2M, the 7,000-square-foot domain of brick and stone recently had a price cut of $250K. The custom design features Brazilian hardwoods, marble, chandeliers, huge kitchen, home theater, sauna, and heated floors. And we haven't even broached the biggest selling point: the backyard's watery compound of pool, hot tub, and patio. Priced the same as the 1873 C.S. Bouton House a few blocks away (where the price has recently dropped as well), big spenders certainly can have their way in Kenwood at the moment.
