A mansion once owned by William Randolph Hearst has hit the market for $2.2 million, according to the New York Post.

The manse on Long Island’s North Shore was built in 1906 outside the BeauxArts Casino, now known as the Bay Club. The 52-year-old publishing mogul is said to have bought the home around 1917 for his then-20-year-old mistress, Marion Davies. While the couple spent time at the famous Hearst Castle on California’s coast, Davies lived in the Huntington Bay home until Hearst’s death in 1951.

The main house has five bedrooms and there’s a two-bedroom guest house on the roughly 1-acre grounds. There’s an 800-bottle wine cellar, a billiard room, a wet bar and a wraparound veranda. [NYP] — Dennis Lynch
