The massive Barrington mansion that was featured in the hit television series Empire has returned to the market with new photos and a price reduction. In the show, the home belonged to series protagonist Lucious Lyon, but in real life, the home belongs to Sam Cecola, the owner of Chicago's Admiral Theatre strip club. The 20,000-square-foot mansion listed in June 2013 with a $15.9 million price tag. The home itself is large, but it also includes eight and a half acres of land. As of today, it can be had for $12.5 million.
