Perhaps because it sits in the shadow of a LSD high-rise, this 4,200-square-foot vintage Gold Coast home sold for just $1.165M in December. Looking to pull in revenue quickly, the new owner has it listed for rent at $4,990/month. Built in 1890, it has some of the most potent curb appeal in a neighborhood of architectural riches. The interiors don't quite keep pace, but, although not jammed with upgrades, they have a lovingly maintained magazine quality about them. This is especially true of the adorable dining room and rear terrace. On a compact lot, garage parking is available across the street and the lake is a half-block away. Why buy?
