The largest Buena Park work of noted Prairie architect George Washington Maher (he has a few) is still flailing around on the market after 18 months. In this neck of the woods, a multi-million dollar property often suffers from the perception that its seller must be cracked out. Thing is, the 12,000-square-foot trophy home that is this mansion, in such pure and perfect condition, could plausibly fetch eight-figures downtown. When it came on market in March of 2011, nothing in the greater Uptown area approached its $5.19M asking price. The situation is the same today (another Hutchinson Street home is listed for $2.99M), though the ask has just dropped to $4.5M. Built in 1913, the house occupies five city lots, whose lush gardens and circumferential lawn help "create a strong sense of privacy". The pictures tell the rest of the story.
