One of the first places I lived in the city was a 600 square foot rental at $550 a month. It was a half a block away from this house. (I find it crazy how such a HUGE mansion is right next to tiny apartment rentals, it's part of the reason I love the city.)Once it was a single family home. Somewhere along the line, it became one of the "it" destinations for holding a party or reception. Yes, I had the privilege of attending not one, not two, but three parties at this AMAZING estate.About 10 girlfriends and I busted out bad prom dresses and sashes and attended a rocking Halloween party as the Miss America Beauty Pageant. We walked into the party doing the parade float wave. They actually had a casket filled with beverages. What a perfect backdrop this German Baroque Behemoth made for a Halloween party....and party we did.
You know I'm going here...don'cha? Yep...this has since been converted back into a single family home:O Can you imagine living in 16,000 square feet? (jaw dropping I know) I gotta say, I have no idea how much the home changed hands for, but I do know it was rehabbed to within an inch of it's life...It must be AMAZING to see.
Oddly, enough I haven't been invited to a party;P (Must be lost in the mail)
