Photos: Stunning 19th Century Lincoln Park Mansion Now Listed For $7M

Lincoln Park West's stunning, Romanesque mansion on Deming Place has been on the market since last summer—but the owners have just brought the price down, again, to a slightly less-sky-high $6.99 million.

The home was originally listed at $8.8 million, and the price has been brought down twice since then. The owners paid just under $3.4 million for the home in 2005, according to listings data, but that number doesn't factor in the money that was spent modernizing the home, which was once broken up into apartment units, according to the Tribune.

The Park West mansion was built in the late 1800s by German architect Edmund Krause, according to the listing, who designed a number of Chicago-area homes at the turn of the century. At 632 W. Deming Pl., the mansion sits on a lot of 9,500 square feet and boasts six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, a three-car garage and a dog run. Historic features include original stained glass art. It's also close to the park and the lake.

The price is going to have to jump significantly (and then some. And then some more.) before we could ever afford such a home, but we're enjoying exploring the photo gallery that shows off the home's marble floors, carved wood details, chandeliers, and a mural of a tree in a children's room.
