It's Just A Simple Mansion For Goodness Sakes

John Edwards and family just moved into Orange County, North Carolina's largest home.
RALEIGH - Presidential candidate John Edwards and his family recently moved into what county tax officials say is the most valuable home in Orange County. The house, which includes a recreational building attached to the main living quarters, also is probably the largest in the county.

The rambling structure sits in the middle of a 102-acre estate on Old Greensboro Road west of Chapel Hill. The heavily wooded site and winding driveway ensure that the home is not visible from the road. "No Trespassing" signs discourage passersby from venturing past the gate. [QC: After all, we don't want that "other America" to get too close, do we...]

...the Edwards home total[s] 28,200 square feet of connected space. The main house is 10,400 square feet and has two garages. The recreation building, a red, barn-like building containing 15,600 square feet, is connected to the house by a closed-in and roofed structure of varying widths and elevations that totals 2,200 square feet.

T
he main house is all on one level except for a 600-square-foot bedroom and bath area above the guest garage.

T
he recreation building contains a basketball court, a squash court, two stages, a bedroom, kitchen, bathrooms, swimming pool, a four-story tower, and a room designated "John's Lounge."
You could fit both of Edwards' Americas in that whopper and have room for a bit of Canada. I guess channeling unborn babies really pays well.
