The Most Expensive House in St. Louis Once Belonged to Joseph Pulitzer [PHOTOS]


You know it's an “old money” mansion when there are elephant tusks in the living room.

This is the most expensive house on the market in St. Louis right now. The sprawling estate was originally built in 1912 as the family residence for newspaper baron Joseph Pulitzer. A different family bought the house in 1962 and the ten-bedroom, 11,000 square foot mansion has been in that family ever since.

Little has changed since the home changed hands, with retro (yet refined) styling throughout the lower level, six bedrooms upstairs and the guest apartment. The rooms are very generously sized and most include some type of custom millwork or shelving.

A separate wing of the mansion houses more bedrooms, and the house includes a commercial kitchen, a secondary kitchen and a butler’s pantry, making this grand house perfect for entertaining or hosting large events.

The property also includes an elevator, motor court, three-car heated garage, generator and a pool. The house is built on thirteen acres of land with an additional sixteen-acre estate adjoining Saint Louis Country Club available as well. (For an increase in price, or course.)
