Hi Everyone! The discussion today is about mansions of course. I want to know what is the biggest house you have every been to. First, I'll tell you my answer. I went to a 30,000 square foot mansion in Alpine, NJ that was still be constructed and it was a monster. It had four sets of stairs and a full size indoor basketball court. Also the hallways were so long that it felt like a gallery. The ceilings were over 12 feet high and I could here my voice echo in every room. It was really cool. It took me over ten minutes to walk through the whole house!
Please leave a comment telling us what was the largest house you have ever been to. Thanks!
