Lakeview's historic, and utterly massive, Wrigley Mansion was put on the real estate market for a whopping $7.1 million earlier this year. But just this week, the mansion took a significant price cut and was re-listed at $5.5 million. This 9 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 13,700 square-feet mansion was built in 1896 and designed by Prairie School architect Richard Schmidt, according to the realtor.

The home, at 2466 N. Lakeview Ave. features a solarium, walk-in vault, multiple game rooms, a mahogany paneled library and top floor ball room where you can host all of your Devil in the White City cosplay parties. Of course, the ballroom also features unobstructed views of Lincoln Park and Lake Michigan. The home was originally built for brewer Joseph Theurer, according to historic records, but it is named for its reported early 20th-century owner, Wiliam Wigley Jr. of the famed Wrigley Company.

The place was designated a historic landmark in 1979. Take a look inside the home, via these stunning real estate photos.
