French Provincial Palace - $799,000

Just ran across this "French Provincial palace" last night when my Near South real estate search bled over into Armour Square. Here is the description:

IT'S A PALACE. IT'S ONLY ONE. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING
EXTERIOR LOOK ON THIS FRENCH STYLE 4-STY HOUSE W/BEAUTIFUL WHITE MARBLE
DECK ABOVE BLACK GRANITE POND. THE INSIDE ALWAYS TAKES VISITORS' BREATH
AWAY: MUSEUM LIKE LIVING RM; FRENCH ROYAL STYLE HOME THEATER; GARDEN
DINING RM; ARABIAN MASTER BEDRM; HUGE 6-STAR GUEST RM; 8 CARVED PANEL
DOORS, CHINESE TEA ROOM.

At 3500 square feet this 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath single family home is located at 1908 S. Louie Parkway (kind of like the king). It has been on the market for 323 days now, with 5 price changes - two of which were actually substantial increases for a period of time. In fact, for 6 days it was actually listed for sale at $699K?!?!?!

The home appears to have been purchased in April, 2005 for $428K so I assume the current owner is trying to recover the cost of modifications made to the property.

  • It looks like Liberace threw up all other the place.

  • VERY tacky. Probably a drug dealer with too much time and $$.

  • OMFG. The place must reek of Brut For Men, Lysol, cigars, sweat and cheap women...

  • Possibly the most vile property I've seen in the city. Whomever the "designer" is should be publicly flogged for wasting materials.
