This Crestwood castle that has had its named tied to politicos and activist Stokely Carmichael has dropped its asking price from $2.2 million to $1.8 million. Apparently, the virtue of being a castle of historic note isn't enough to compensate for weird stains and badly aging banisters. Redfin agent Steve Centrella has since toured the 4,046 square foot castle and echoed most of the same lukewarm sentiments. Says Centrella, "This home has great character, original details and unique features, including the turret and original leaded glass windows. However, it does need updates and maintenance throughout, and at this price point buyers may be looking for something that is a bit more move in-ready."
