We’re still mourning the loss of an icon. Mary Tyler Moore turned the world on with her smile, as did the Minneapolis Victorian that served as her apartment’s exterior on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The Queen Anne home that’s been on and off the market is currently for sale, and at quite the price reduction.

While Mary Richards’ sweet apartment was a set on a soundstage, the interior of the Kenwood home is impressive in its own right—and just a little bit bigger. The 9,500 square foot property has seven bedrooms, four full and five partial bathrooms. That is nine bathrooms, folks.

It also has private guest/nanny quarters on the second floor, a finished basement complete with a fitness room and sauna, and quite an abundance of original detail (the home was built in 1910). There’s a mudroom and an attached three-car garage (no word on whether there’s a white Ford Mustang parked inside).

For those who enjoy the outdoors, the property has a large yard, patio, and decks, and is also close to both a bike path and the lake.

The home has been on and off the market since 2012, when it was listed for $2.895 million. Comparatively, the current list price of $1.695 million is practically a steal.

The listing doesn’t mention the home’s Hollywood connections; while we’re not sure how the current owners feel about its history, the people who owned it while the sitcom was on the air were so inundated with visitors that they reportedly draped the front in “Impeach Nixon” signs to prevent the show from shooting new exterior shots.
