  •  Interesting Features
    Very unique and beautiful gardens, which are abandoned and not being restored as of yet. Perhaps the most interesting feature, but not of the property itself, is that this house was used in the filming of A Beautiful Mind. The scenes where he mails packages at night are filmed here - I confirmed it by watching the movie again last night.

     Future Plans

    NOVEMBER 2015:
    It's been active for as long as i've known it. People have wedding there and their photos. If you want to go take photos it's considered a photoshoot in which you have to pay $3,000 for. It's not worth it. There's no sneaking in, People work there all day.
