Candy-Colored Lincoln Park House On The Market For A Discount (PHOTOS)

The sellers of a five-bedroom Lincoln Park home with a rooftop terrace, elevator and coach house recently slashed 20 percent off its asking price.

The recently-rehabbed house, which sat on the market since last April without any takers for the $2.5 million tag, retains a downright Seussical design scheme, which reflects the aesthetics of the previous owner's blog, according to Curbed Chicago, who first spotlit the property last spring. A wide range of pastel hues blankets the home's 10 rooms.

A 2010 reconstruction included the addition of a third floor, according to the listing, and the property features chocolate-brown hardwood and arched doorways throughout.

Seated at the corner of Clifton and Dickens, the red brick home is now priced at $2 million and represented by Koenig & Strey. At its last sale, in 2009, the home closed at $1.38 million, prior to the third floor addition, Curbed reports.

Would this color scheme work after Labor Day? Check out photos from the listing and share your feedback in the comments:
