Built in 1970, 1535 Soniat St. doesn't have the historical charm of some of the other houses in the area (the house is located less than a block away from St. Charles, right across the street from the Latter Memorial Library). But if you're looking for your almost two-million-dollar bachelor pad, this might be it. The 5,150 square-feet modern mansion includes an open, light filled dining and living area; a pool; a "climate-controlled wine tasting room"; and a third floor "bonus room" — which has its own kitchen and bathroom — that's currently being used as a pretty serious man cave with sports memorabilia, a poker table, arcade games and a dog portrait. How much for this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom party pad? $1,950,000.
