    Agreed on the cold feeling part. The house next door to it is 1000x better imo with style, but I like the garage and lot/property size and location of the bigger one.

    Windermere Luxury Homes

    Sold for $8mm to a local pediatric pulmonologist from Nigeria. No idea docs could make that much...

    I'll pass. I guess you won't have to mow the front yard. So many of these high priced houses are either cold or tacky or just big ugly boxes for the sake of being big.

    THE quintessential large but still beautiful home in the US is Mount Vernon. Land, House, and location make quite a package.

    There's a really nice pic from the back elevated to show the house and property but I can't find the link, these aren't bad.

    Yes...I don't get the plane bit, though. It's not connected to an airport/runway and I guess is just static display/entertainment. Kinda odd.

    The location, horse facilities and garages were the give away.
    Dunno about the plane.

    Interesting. Surprised it's not mentioned in the article. Explains the "N" though...

    The plane adds a certain mystery. The airport is literally just a few blocks away from the estate.

    Yahoo maps shows much that is not built, yet.

    The plane has me scratching my head.... 2 questions

    1) How the heck did it get there?
    2) I dont see anything but roads surrounding the plane, no runways? Even if the airport is a few blocks away how the heck does the plane cross the streets?????

    Very interesting overhead image

    I was thinking the same thing. Looks silly unless you can taxi it to a runway.

    Probably his when touring. Kept it for the memories.
    With enough friends and money you can move mountains. A plane should be easy.

    That sounds incredibly stupid. When he stopped using it why didn't he just sell it?
