Buyers of understated taste, look elsewhere. This stately mansion in St. Louis is an ornate relic of the 19th century, and it’s now available for $2.25 million.

Once used as a nightclub and speakeasy during the Prohibition era, the 12,000-square-foot stone-built manor has all the markings of a building with history. The house boasts striking coffered ceilings with crown molding, a Waterford Crystal chandelier dangling over the staircase, and the original speakeasy design—checkered floors and all—in the basement.

Ten-foot-wide hallways cut through all three levels of the house and act as the main artery between the eight bedrooms and host of living quarters including a wood-paneled study, formal living room, and a fancy dining room with silk cloth walls.

While the home is a sparkling example of age-old glamour, it does come with some modern touches including a second-floor theater, updated mechanical systems, and a backyard with a sprawling patio, pool, and spa facilities.

15 Portland Place is listed at $2,250,000.
