Curbed Chicago: A replica of the White House only blue

Location: 8401 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60619, USA
JP Paulus actually did a "Where am I" post on this house located @ 8401 S. Michigan Avenue just last summer. Accoring to Mark Boyer at Curbed, this house's selling price has been reduced to $899,900 in November from the original selling price of $1 million. Needless to say it's up for sale. And some history is provided:
The White House is nice and all, but sometimes it just seems a little too white. In Chatham, someone addressed the problem, building a 7,970-square-foot replica of the White House out of imported Italian blue brick. It really is something to see. Aside from its magnificent blueness, we don't know a great deal about this home. According to the slide show, the place was built in 1966 and it appears to have been updated fairly recently with cherry floors, granite-stainless kitchen finishes, and new bathroom finishes. There's a home office, but — sorry to disappoint — it looks nothing like the Oval Office. The home comes with almost a half-acre of gated property (the gate, by the way, is remote controlled).
Does anyone have close to $900K to buy this home?
