This 20,043 square foot mansion is located at 151 Haggetts Pond Road in Andover, MA. It was built in 2003 and is situated on 4 acres of land. The home boasts 9 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, billiards room, home theater, arcade room, full size indoor basketball court, and a large deck with built-in hot tub. The highlight of this home is the massive atrium that houses an indoor swimming pool with 2-story water slide, gym, locker rooms, bar, and a 1-lane bowling alley. It is listed at $6,500,000. While it has all the amenities that I want in a home, everything looks a bit dated and cheap. The interior decor definitely needs some updating and the ceilings look a bit low. I personally would re-decorate the entire home and re-do the bowling alley and home theater.

    Two words come to mind: musty and lonely. I understand having a home theater and even a bowling alley in a home, but what is the point of having an entire ‘entertainment’ complex at your house? So you can have fun all by YOURSELF? I understand wanting to entertain by this comes off as if someone was too scared to venture outside and explore the town they live. God forbid you make some friends at the local basketball court or bar…

      See, I disagree. I think it’s an advantage to having most of the parties at your house. That way you can monitor the guests. When I venture out to bars/clubs I find that 80% of the people make me sick. Then again, I live in Southern California where everybody has to express their low self esteem by covering themselves with insignificant tattoos while walking around in xtra small toughguy clothes and fedora hats and carrying empty conversations about how much $$ they make. By having an entertainment home, you can ban these douchebags and release the hounds on the few that still show up.

    Damn, they know how to party in Massachusetts.
    This house is a little dated, but I like the general idea.

    2003? that house looks like it was built in the 90’s, or maybe it is just poorly decorated/photographed.

    I would love to have an indoor waterslide like that though.

    Once I stopped laughing at the pics of the interior I looked at them closer. Then I felt sad.

    There’s a dichotomy between the concept of playfulness – with the waterslide, gym, bar, and theater – and the utterly depressing execution of it. WTF is up with that pathetic little christmas tree next to the bowling alley? Let’s remind the kiddies that it’s a holiday but that we can’t spend more than $19.95 on decorations to make our $6.5 million house look festive. At least after drinking yourself stupid at the bar you can stumble into the pool to help you sober up, or drown.

    The interior needs a lot of sprucing up. Those pink chairs in the cinema room look hideous. The bowling alley looks really dark and cluttered. The home is quite nice but the interior needs a complete makeover

    That really is a shoddy interior. It’s the typical ‘just by something and we’ll see where we can put it afterwards’ style. No style throughout the home, it’s all just clutter and you can see it was created bit by bit instead of having a nice architectual flow.

    I agree with you Ken. Great ideas for a home, stupid execution. An indoor waterslide is goofy and it looks like a McDonald’s playground. Same with the 5ft. long spa-to-pool slide. Good God, just get out and jump in the pool.

    I have been to the Haggetts Pond house many times and I must have missed the ‘low ceilings’ and ‘dated decor’. The house is spectacular, fun and it is great to have a home where you can entertain friends and family. I especially like the movie theater. It reminds me of being a kid and going to the movies in big cities where the theaters all had the ‘red’ seats. The parties and family gatherings there have all been fun and unforgettable. Obviously you guys all live in 4 bedroom 2 bath ranchers. Not to mention your sense of ‘style’ and decor.

    Came across your posting and this home is anything but what you all describe.
    My son (now 20) had played soccer for the town and the family opened thier gym in the winter for the teams. Had many occasions to visit the home…especially at christmas and the decorations were impressive. You kids should put more energy into your postings and not at 2,3 and 4 am.
