I asked them property manager what it would cost to buy it as it sat and she said that there was too much there to ever put a price tag to and a cost has never been put together for everything there. She said it would be well over a billion. They have books there that are hundreds of years old, a chess set that was owned by Nepoleon Bonaparte, one of the first indoor pools ever built, one of (if not the first) walk in refrigerators, tapestries that are HUGE and hundreds of years old from around the world, just insane. A railroad was built through the property just to build it.
We went because my wife wanted to while we were there and I didn't want to. Glad I did now and really plan on going back.
