Having hit the market priced at $12.5 million last month, as we first reported at the time, the asking price for the massive Glen Park estate at 47 Chenery Street has just been reduced by $1.5 million (12 percent) to an even $11 million.

In addition to a garden cottage and three-unit building which fronts Chenery, the estate’s hidden main home which was built for Robert Pritikin (the former ad man responsible for Rice-a-Roni’s iconic jingle) and is known as both the Pritikin Museum or Chenery House sits on a half-acre parcel in the middle of the block and is outfitted with five bedrooms, five baths and a grand staircase which leads up to a signature “penthouse” pool with a retractable glass roof.

And once again, Pritikin’s rather spectacular art collection, which has been “valued at over $50 million,” is not included in the sale.

    Chop Chop chop: I predict, if it sells, it will end up almost 1/2 the asking.

    The eventual buyer can use the extra money to have the place cleansed – literally and spiritually. Some serious bad vibes here.

    Whence the serious bad vibes? Illuminati? Idiosyncratic for sure, and think it will be very meh without all the objects.

      Smelly. Dirty. Hitler and Nazi displays (with disclaimers posted that the displays are not intended as an endorsement of Nazi actions or philosophy but still). Life-sized statues of security guards. No discernible living areas – just gallery space. Crazy quilt of fake grass squares covering the yard.
