Oscar Mayer Mansion Up For Sale

This is the house that hotdogs built! Back in 1927 Oscar G. Mayer the son of Oscar F. Mayer used the family's processed meat moola to move into this mansion just a stone's throw from Lake Michigan and lived in the home until the mid 1960s.

For just $1.75 million you can now move into this palace of pork products. Sadly, it's lost a bit of its luster over the years and after some issues with a previous owner the home went into foreclosure.

"It's a beautiful old mansion that unfortunately has been empty for a few years and needs someone to restore it to its grandeur," a rep from Sotheby's International told Chigagobusiness.com.

The enormous brick structure is almost 7500 square feet with 6 bedrooms, 4 ½ baths, a curved tower and a ballroom -- not too shabby for the man who specialized in b-o-l-o-g-n-a.

Proceeds from the sale of the Oscar Mayer mansion will go to pay off lenders from the previous owner's estate.
