A week ago, the vintage mansion that once belonged to sausage king Oscar G. Mayer Sr. hit the market for $1.75 million. However, the MLS listing only included a few exterior shots, and a a few photos of the home's large yard. And just from viewing the exterior photos, it was clear to see that the old Evanston home needs quite a bit of work to get it back into shape. However, Chicagoist recently stumbled upon a few interior images that were posted to Facebook. The story hasn't changed much — as it's even more clear that the home is going to need a lot of work, but the photos do reveal that the home has got good bones. There's vintage stained glass throughout the home, colorful yet slightly creepy wallpaper and a gorgeous staircase. Its current ask is certainly a bit of a stretch considering how much money it'll cost to restore the home, but hopefully the home will find a new owner willing to breath new life into it.
