You are probably correct: I just don’t understand the desire to live in a 10,000 sf mansion. It would be like wandering around a museum. The Kennedy’s and their acolytes are Sasquatch hypocrites with their ‘environmental footprints’.
Biltmore makes a 10,000 square footer look like a tiny cottage by comparison. I can’t imagine what drove George Vanderbilt to think he needed it other than monumental ego.
