A 19th-century Gold Coast mansion made famous for its role in the 1980s sitcom Webster and later rented by Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade is back on the market with a new, lower asking price of $7.5 million.

Designed in 1883 by Chicago architect A.M.F Colton & Sons for businessman Charles K. Miller, the historic Victorian home at 1432 N. State Parkway features an ornate brick and stone facade. Inside, the home boasts an extensive interior makeover completed by its current owners, Chicago real estate developers Randy and Steven Fifield.

The eight-bedroom, seven-bathroom property retains much of its original moldings and woodwork—albeit in many cases behind a layer a white paint. The historic touches combine with the conveniences such as an open floorplan, a designer kitchen, and a basement screening room. The 9,100-square-foot property also includes a separate guest apartment above an attached coach house and a walled side-lot courtyard.

The stately Gold Coast residence initially listed for $9.5 million in early 2016 before it was taken off the market and rented to Wade for an undisclosed amount. The mansion returned in spring 2019, asking $7.9 million, and can now be yours for just under $7.5 million.
