An eight-bedroom, four-bathroom mansion at 13 Edgemere Avenue in Mount Arlington was relisted in late April at more than $200,000 less than it sought in August 2018, JerseyDigs reported. The property on Lake Hopatcong, known as Mira Lacum, had been on the market for $1.2 million late last year. Mira Lacum had previously listed for $2.9 million in 2012 and experienced a number of price cuts before returning to the market last month with a $999,900 ask. The home’s Zillow listing noted that it was foreclosed upon in April due to a $710,000 unpaid balance. Kathleen Courter of RE/MAX House Values has the listing for Mira Lacum, which was built in 1895. The 5,626-square-foot property has 3 docks, 4 floors, 6 fireplaces and a wood stove. According to Zillow and various news reports, the Mira Lacum property was designed by former German architect Francis Himpler, who designed Hoboken City Hall and other buildings across the country. [Jersey Digs]
