When your married to a crazy wimminz like me, you never know what strange poison you'll find in your food. Only solution....Cook all your own food.

yeah vacuuming 180,000 sq feet would take a long time for one person. If I remember from the tour they had 35 or so servents running the house.

I was there once. A number of years ago.
Thats the same houseas the rich ugly guy in Hannibal.

I wish I remembered more of it though. I was young, and didn't much care that we were there.

I went there on my honeymoon a few years ago. Kinda disappointing that at any given time, only half to two-thirds of the house is open, but it's still a lot to take in. If you didn't, you really should have gone to the wine cellar and tasted some of the wines.

Looks like they could use some pigeon control.
I'd volunteer.

Where is the rifle range at?

Looks like a good place for an indoor paintball match.

Funny you should mention that.....Room #63, the last room on the tour said "Gun Room" I was gettin excited turns out it was filled only with book cases and was only 10 X 10. George Vanderbilt didn't have his priorities right

My guess is the second door from the master bedroom on the second floor.

Thats not a house, thats a small country.

Just a suggestion.

Playing pocket-pool there? It's a big house, yea, but is it really worth being put on the sexual predators

Uh hands were cold, that is what pockets are for. As you see, pic #3 shows that I have no need to play pocket pool.

Yea they lowered the price and increased the efficiency of their products like crazy. They also started some of the best institutions of learning we have. Bastards.
