A wonderfully iridescent mansion with a strong connection to a popular American cookie and cracker company has landed on the St. Louis real estate market for $2.15 million.
It’s called the Nabisco mansion, and the Beaux Arts style estate was completed in 1896 for baker and philanthropist Lewis Dozier, whose soda-cracker company would become known worldwide as Nabisco, the listing on Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty says.

The eight-bedroom, 7.5-plus-bathroom residence is a complement to the “golden-era of St. Louis,” the listing details.
“It’s a perfect architectural example, featuring grand foyers, soaring ceilings, hand-carved staircase and fireplaces, exotic wood details and a medieval-style basement ballroom,” listing agent Samuel Hall told Mansion Global.
Features inside the colorful property include:
“Medieval-style basement ballroom”
According to the listing, the current owners “undertook a passionate restoration updating the mechanical systems of the home preserving the period baths, remodeling the kitchen, restoring the ballroom, painting period-appropriate wall murals, to building a new 4-car garage, deck and pergola.”
The listing is held by Hall and Jeffrey P. Warner.
