A gigantic listing just descended on central Lake View. The 6,000-square-foot new-build is unusually squat for its price and location, at just two above-ground floors. But you soon realize that irregularity is a virtue of the corner lot's enormity— the house lays out deep and wide and there's still yard space and a two-car garage. The three-bed home saves most of its eccentricities for the living spaces: wacky lamps; inlaid hardwood floors; French doors that tilt on their hinges; marble fireplaces; open floating staircase; pillars; and a superb basement bar/party room. So where's that waterfall? If you look closely, it's behind the staircase straddling the first and second floors. New to market, the asking price is $4,999,999— now the richest listing in Lake View. Care to ogle (or heckle) the property further? A snazzy open house charity event is planned for this Saturday, 2-8pm. Anyone interested in attending should RSVP.
