Drop $1.75M and Live in This Real-Life Clue Board Game

New, 4 comments


Both ominous and impressive with its stony façade and Corinthian pilasters, this St. Louis, Mo., mansion is back on the market for the first time in 50 years, asking $1.75M. Originally built in 1897, the six-bedroom estate is a museum-like capsule of Tiffany-style domed skylights, ornate mosaic floors, hand-painted frescos, and a massive, grand entrance-worthy staircase. "Step through the front door and the old world, money is no object craftsmanship is apparent," prompts the haughty brokerbabble. Step further and see just how much the entire place looks like the classic board game Clue (and movie version, though with a depressing shortage of Tim Curry,) right down to its wood paneled billiard room, grand library, and 1908 conservatory addition. Outside, there's a pool and a fancy carriage house apartment. Grab a candlestick and take a tour, below:
