I read today in the WSJ that the 16,000 square foot Maryland estate of the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver and her husband sold for less than $8M. The Real Estalker blogged about the estate last October when it first hit the market with a $11.8M asking price. So put yourself in the Shriver family's elite shoes: they listed the house for less than $12M and it sold almost a year later for "only" $7.81M. Oh, well...it's only one year later and $4,000,000 short.
Also, I really like this floor plan. They built this house in the mid-1980's, but it looks like it's from Gone With The Wind. It's a great floor plan with large rooms, lots of storage, and I love those second story balconies. Mrs. Shriver and her husband had over 20 great years in this beautiful home. That's glorious! I hope me and my husband get 20 great years in our dream home.
