Upper Dublin Mansion With Cigar Room, Phone Booth and 19th-Century Pool Table

Also: a theater with a 9-foot screen, and lots and lots of dolls.


There is so much going on in his house, it is mind-boggling. Or, better said, eye-boggling. The house’s featured amenities — not all of which we’ve ever heard of or even understand — are staggering in number and extravagance:

– six-person sauna
– working phone booth
– sliding hardware store ladder
– 3-car garage with extra-tall steel door
bidet and raised Jacuzzi
– theater with overhead projector and 9-foot screen
– marble-top wet bar
– 1895 Brunswick pool table
calendar table
cigar/party room
– pool w/cascading waterfall
cabana with bathroom

As for the materials and interior design, there’s cove lighting, gold-plated cut-crystal light fixtures, a Pennsylvania Bluestone fireplace, and imported monastery doors. And there’s marble, marble, marble, and granite and granite, and wine storage aplenty. The decor is colorful, crowded, idiosyncratic and doll-filled. It really is a fascinatingly confusing must-see. Gallery below.
