Just off the lakeshore in Uptown is this beguiling new-to-market mini-mansion, braced by a thick stand of high-rise apartments. The 5/5.5 home was "completely restored" in 2005, although we'll presume the in-ground salt water pool w/ adjoining hot tub and waterfall were features original to the 1939 construction. Ditto the home theater and party-sized weight room. Where the interior restoration preformed well, the add-ons excelled. Speaking of interiors, the 6,500-square-foot living space includes three ensuite bedrooms, walnut floors, custom cabs and millwork throughout, basement wet bar and billiards room, and freewheelin' fireplaces and terraces. The ask? $3.15M. Some two years ago, the place was listed for rent at $12,000/month. However you slice it, that's a lot of loot for Uptown!
