Rick Snowden, proprietor of Rick’s Tally-Ho and other adult entertainment clubs, has put his Nottingham Terrace mansion up for sale. Snowden’s decision to sell his home follows the State Liquor Authority’s decision to pull the liquor license from Rick’s Tally-Ho.
Snowden’s home is better known as the Miller Mansion. Built between 1929 and 1933, the mansion is 13,000 square feet of Onondoga limestone. Duane Lyman was the architect and the home was constructed for Annie Lang Miller, daughter of brewer Gerhard Lang.
As many Buffalonians know, the Miller Mansion once served as the Nichols Middle School until the school sold the property in 2001. In 2002, the mansion was sold to local injury attorney Gerald Schaffer who promptly sold the home to Snowden in 2004. Snowden paid $995,000 for the house and $305,000 for household “contents.” Since purchasing the home, Snowden added a fountain relocated to his front lawn from a Newport, RI mansion and a 3 car garage. And since his 2004 purchase of the home, Snowden found a new neighbor with the newly built 186 Middlesex Road – a subject of much debate on this site.
With the Miller Mansion listed at $2.195M, there are now 4 homes in this neighborhood for sale with asking prices over $1M.
