R. Kelly’s former Chicago home will go back on the market Monday with a listing price of $3.89 million.  Kelly sold the Lake View home in 2002, and it was unoccupied for several years before current owner Ilene Greenblatt purchased it for $1 million, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. She allegedly purchased it to impress her nephew and hadn’t heard of R. Kelly.

Extensively renovated in the past 18 months, the place – ironically, a former church – is now a four-bedroom home with a marble-clad fireplace in the living room, a sleek kitchen, a 1,500-square-foot rooftop terrace with an outdoor kitchen, and an elevator.

In a listing for the residence, Ed Jelinek and Shawn Daly of Coldwell Banker say the home is “truly a unique residence that has been created for the person who simply lives larger than most others.”  [View photos of the home’s interior above.]

Despite the changes made to the home, Kelly’s 1,600 gallon shark tank remains–now filled with tamer fish. Also, Kelly’s Looney Toons-themed bar was listed on Craigslist this week for $1,000.
