After languishing on the market for more than three years, this historic gold coast mansion is back once again with an even lower asking price. Built in 1886 by Norwegian-born architect Harald M. Hansen for local beer baron George A. Weiss, the Gilded Age home is wrapped in a classic Chicago facade adorned with carved stone and copper detailing.
Inside, the 7,000-square-foot home features an impressive collection of original millwork including rich wood floors, ceilings, decorative panelling, staircases, and fireplaces. The bright and updated kitchen opens onto a rear patio—an outdoor space further supplemented by the home’s private rooftop terrace and large greenhouse.
Since first listing in 2014 for a whopping $5.8 million, the 19th century brownstone has been the recipient of some serious price cuts. In 2016, the property unsuccessfully sought $4.8 million, $4.3 million, and $4.1 million. The home returned earlier this year for $3.9 million before skimming another $10,000 off its asking price yesterday.
