It's December, meaning it's time to celebrate the Van Dusen Mansion's three-year anniversary on the market! You keep on doing your thing, Van Dusen. Unlike previous years, the ol' girl isn't bringing in the new year with a celebratory price chop. Nay, the price has actually increased in 2013, rocketing up from $699K to $789K. Perhaps the price hike is connected with its new status as a rentable property. We suggest splitting its $5K/month rent with some pals, though the seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and over 10,000 square feet of interior space suggest you won't cross paths with roomies too often. The house was built in 1922 for Charles Van Dusen, prez of Kmart's predecessor Kresge.
