ST. LOUIS – The NABISCO Mansion just steps away from Forest Park is on the market for $2.15 million.
The 12,847 square foot home was built in 1896 for Lewis Dozier who was a director of the National Biscuit Company, and he was the manager of its St. Louis branch.
John Ludwig designed the 8 bedroom, 9 bathroom, and 14 fireplace home.
The property was built to impress “the most fashionable guests of this Golden-era of STL,” the listing says. “Its grand foyer, soaring ceilings, hand-carved staircase and fireplaces, exotic wood details, medieval-style basement ballroom,” and pool were made to exceed any expectation.
According to the listing, the “current owners purchased the home 26 years ago, and undertook a passionate restoration updating the mechanical systems of the home, preserving the period baths, remodeling and the kitchen restoring the ballroom, painting period-appropriate wall murals, to building a new 4-car garage, deck and pergola.”
