      No, that’s not just A white elephant, growler…….that AIRPORT is a HERD of white elephants.

      Sorry, but ANY one, repeat ANY one INCOMPREHENSIBLY materialistic, egomaniacal and psychotically, delusionally GREEDY enough to actually build a FIFTY THOUSAND SQUARE FOOT “house” will have a near impossible time trying to find a MOLECULE of sympathy from ANYONE. Absurdly insane doesn’t even begin to describe it.

    To me, this has always been one of my favorite mega-mansions. While I don’t think all of it is nice, I think a lot of it is. I would never want to live in a mansion this big, but if I did, this would be one I would seriously consider. I love the grounds, and but the view is fantastic. 🙂

    Sad to see it go on the auction block. 🙁

    This is my favorite house and dream house from Colorado

    It’s not just a house. With all those conference rooms, it’s an office building. With those entertainment amenities, it’s a spa, no, wait… it’s a resort. With all those bedrooms, it’s a hotel. And those 70 acres makes it private, and possible for it to become anything else its new owner wants from a nudist camp to a monastery. Offered at auction with no reserve, it will sell for a fraction of its construction cost and be the bargain of the decade. And if half of it burns down while you’re in the other half, you won’t even know about it until you read tomorrow’s newspaper.

    One more thing – it’s beautiful.

    This home reminds me of 50 Poplar Hill Dr, Farmington, CT.

    That mega-mansion probably has a “story” of it’s conception, and it would be fun to know the story of “Evans Ridge”. My main questions are: how and why were they built? Also: who were they built for?

      I respectfully disagree. This looks like a well built home. 50 Poplar is cheap job site trailer construction on a 30K+ Sq ft scale. I see a lot of these homes on a smaller scale in today’s new construction. 4,000 sq ft vinyl boxes that look like two story trailers from the back.

        You’re right Nightmoves. There is a tackyness to 50 Poplar Dr, but “Evan’s Ridge” has a more respectable aura about it. It seems like it was more thought out and given more love.

        The inside of 50 Poplar Dr is just terrible.

    Owned by Cal Turner, founder of Dollar General.

    Cal did not build this house. A man by the name of John Castanza did. Cal just made it warm and livable.
