CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago's historic "Wrigley Mansion" has been sold to a private trust for millions below its original asking price.

The foreclosed property at 2466 North Lakeview Avenue was listed for $7.15 million in early 2017 and had been under contract to sell, but was relisted in August by Parkvue Realty at a lower price - $5.5 million.

A luxurious mansion that spans more than eight city lots hit the market Thursday at a record asking price of $50 million.

Broker Anthony Disano confirmed the iconic Lincoln Park home was sold for $4.65 million, but said he did not know the buyer's plans or intentions for the property.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places and a Chicago Landmark, the 9-bedroom, 6.3-bathroom estate was designed by architect Richard Schmidt and completed in 1896. The Lincoln Park mansion was purchased by the Wrigley family in 1911.
