Nothing makes you hungrier than the holidays, where food and festivities go hand in hand. But many real estate lovers have (maybe) wondered, can you also marry food and real estate? The answer, friends, is yes! Below is a roundup of famous food mansions that you (yes, you!) can buy this Thanksgiving season.
Campbell's Soup Mansion
Live like a soup magnate in this palatial estate, located in Linden Hill, Penn. Once owned by Campbell's soup founder John T. Dorrance, born in 1873, the Campbell's Soup Mansion, nestled on 50 private acres, is now for sale.
This French Normandy-style mansion expands over a soupy 14,467 square feet, with eight bedrooms, 10 baths, formal rooms, family and game rooms with extensive accommodations for guests. It's on the market for a full $19.5 million.
Ghirardelli Chocolate Mansion
MMMM, chocolate mansion. Unfortunately, this dreamy space is no longer for sale. In May, this Piedmont, Calif. home hopped on the market for $5.3 million. The early 1900’s Mission Revival-style mansion almost flew off the shelves faster than a chocolate box on Valentine's day, closing recently for $4.65 million. Spreading out over 6,479-square-feet, the Ghirardelli Chocolate Mansion has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, a third-floor apartment and a guest house above the two-car garage.
Morton Salt Mansion
Joy Sterling Morton, owner of the Morton Salt and Argo Starch brands, built this 10,386 square foot estate in 1914 for his daughter Jean. Now for sale at $4.9 million, the home is situated just north of downtown Chicago and was designed by the famous architect David Adler. Gated for privacy, the Morton Salt Mansion rests on two cushy acres with nine bedrooms and 11 baths.
Pabst Beer Mansion
In 1936, Pabst Brewing Company president Harris Perlstein built his family a fabulous mansion on two acres just 20 miles north of Chicago. Now for sale at $4.595 million, the Georgian-style Pabst Beer Mansion is 14,364 square feet, with eight bedrooms, 12 baths, formal rooms, library, media room, game room and more. Originally on the market for $6.3 million, this new price is a steal for a wealthy beer lover.
The Oscar Mayer Mansion
Who knew hot dogs could make you millions? The family home of Oscar Ferdinand Mayer’s son Oscar G. Mayer is now for sale for $2.8 million. The brick mansion was purchased by Mayer in 1927, just a year before he inherited the famous sausage company from his father.
Located in Evanston, Illinois’ historic Lakeshore District, the recently renovated 7,401-square-foot Oscar Mayer Mansion has huge rooms spanning its three floors with artful restoration of the original features. Mayer lived there until his death in 1965.
