    Setton's place in FR is nice.
    Didn't that castle sit unfinished for awhile, IIRC, had a series of owners?
    Taste not a prerequisite.

    On the East Coast 50 minutes from Grand Central Station.
    I designed and built her 20 years ago.

    A scene of McBain with Chris Walken was shot there.

    That is a very cool house Napolis. I really like modern styling like that with lots of glass, concrete and steel.

    Considering you built it 20 years ago I bet you have seen some insane appreciation on the place.

    Do you have anymore pics of it you could post? Was it used as a drug lords house in McBain? :)



    Amenasce, do you know what Pierre Bardinon did in order to be able to build a private race track around his mansion? Was he is a businessman, racecar driver, from a wealthy family etc.?? I did a quick google search and couldn't find much and I am curious. Thanks

    The mansion featured in the Anthony Hopkins/Brad Pitt movie, "Meet Joe Black" was memorable - I think it's located on Long Island, NY. Does anybody know more about this abode?

    Napolis,

    Considering you built your home 20 years ago it must have seemed futuristic at the time. The design still looks fresh and modern. This to me this is the true test of a great design! Beautiful home!!


    Speaking of great designs, you have to consider this place anytime you talk about greatest homes!

    I've heard that most of his homes are actually pretty unliveable...odd designs, poor construction, etc...
