    ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!
    An estate like this should be returned to it’s former glory and opened as a ‘House’ museum. The idea that it should be lived in, is ridiculous. It could serve as an academic and social tool for countless thousands to learn and grow from. A project like this could unite many disparate groups. An estate like this, that served so few, could now be used to serve many. I hope someone with deep pockets, a social conscious and an unselfish vision does the right thing with this place.

    Am I the only one who fails to see the other 33 bedrooms in the floor plans? And I’ve seen the basement plans too.

    In July of 2015 it was listed at $16.5 M on 33.85 acres with the guest house, and didn’t sell. Now it’s $17.5 on 10 acres and no mention of the guest house ?!?!?! Who the hell is marketing this place ?

    I Googled images of the interior – in its day it could hold its own with the baroque palaces of Europe. But I also saw images of it in disrepair – falling apart – in such insulted shambles it could only be compared to modern architecture and contemporary décor. Yes, that bad. Which begs the question – what condition is this mansion in? Good, or in ruins? The actual listing is useless.

    Very interesting layout… Horace Trumbauer was thinking outside the box. Too bad it’s now falling apart.

    “A historical restoration architect estimated in 2014 that it would take
    about $50 million to restore the mansion to its former glory.”

    Listing agent should be taken out & shot for this write up. ‘dubbed’? Really? One of the more famous estates in the U.S. & it’s ‘dubbed’? Clarification is necessary as one part of the listing says 10 acres & another copied off older listing says 33. If that is correct that’s a price INCREASE for this place. On my next listing I’m going to make sure to park my POS Mini Cooper right in front of it.
