I spotted this odd looking building on a map & it immediately had me curious. I wasn't quite sure what it was but there were signs of it being abandoned. Over the past few months I have been meaning to check on it but always forgot about it until I was home from exploring. Recently I was out with Zenning with Zay & we decided we would not miss it this time. We really had no idea what was in store for us or even if we could get in & as daylight began slipping away, we raced to what we now know as the Abandoned 8 Million Dollar Mansion to try our luck!
This Abandoned 8 Million Dollar Mansion sits on closer to an acre lot & has plenty of yard space, large deck at the back that also runs along the side of the house, a balcony over the 3 car garage, a full sized tennis court & even a tree house! There are no neighbours close by & the property connects to a green space. While exploring this mansion I spotted two white tailed deer!
When you enter the mansion the first thing you see is a stunning curved staircase with a bridge all under 12 skylight windows. It really quite an impressive sight! I have explored a mansion before that had a bridge over the swimming pool however never a bridge inside the home itself! Some other key features aside from the bridge & the two spiral staircases, indoor swimming pool, large sauna on the lower level & a small one in the master bath which also includes a big Jacuzzi tub, 5 bedrooms & 7 bathrooms.
The main staircase was so unique & different from anything I have shot. It took a little time for it to grow on me but as I edited these pictures I fell in love with it! It was odd that the pool was completely covered up with a makeshift floor & even stranger was that they had floor vents & duct work to re-purpose the entire room! As mentioned in the video, this mansion was clearly used for a different purpose than a wealthy living space in its final days. I feel that it was used for at risk youth as a private full time residence with schooling. I have done quite a bit of research however I am drawing a blank for the last few years of its use. Regardless, it was still an absolutely amazing new discovery & explore!
The house was put on the market with an asking price of $8,000,000. From what I have learned, who ever used it last was leasing it & likely from a developer as this gem in the city is worth huge bucks!
