THE BIG HOUSE

Now before rumors start a-swirling...no, the Mistress didn't sell any of my goods and get caught and thrown in the big house, although some of my neighbors might enjoy that. Phoebe Bixler has been complaining for years about all the male sex coming and going for years now. She has even called me Ms. Mona in error at times. No, this is about Daddy Warbucks who was in town for one day, on business for a change. Now, Warbucks has actually been house hunting. He currently has a home in Denver and one in Connecticut. He's looking to sell the latter, for possibly one in Portsmouth. So when he called and said he'd be in town this week to look at a house, I was all excited!
I thought he is finally taking my advice, and to all who know him here, and finally getting a house in New Hope. I later find out he is scouting for a movie location shoot. Well, non the less, he asked me if I wanted to come along and have dinner after. So I said what the hell. The place was in New Jersey, a place I'm not fond of. The only thing I'm familiar with is when I worked there before being laid off, and a trip or two to Asbury Park, where I had one of the BEST massages of my life, but that's another story to chew on for another day. I just don't enjoy the vibe of the state, and after doing a drag act once for a Pride festival, I never went back after a run in with Governor Christie who tried to eat me thinking I was a huge human sized Lady Finger!! Annnnnnyho....the house...was in the Peapack-Gladstone area of New Jersey.
 Once we were there, we were greeted by a lady named Marsha who gave the tour and logistics it of the joint. This  magnificent country home of C. Ledyard Blair, designed and constructed between 1897 and 1903, was just a modest 62,000 square-foot Louis XIV chateau-style mansion and was the masterpiece of renowned architecture firm Carrère and Hastings and a favorite destination of New York City's elite during the Gilded Age. After that I blacked out.

At about this point, Marsha had asked Warbucks if it didn't meet the specifications the studio was looking for, would he be interested in buying the place. I was immediately joyous, and  was all like "Talk to us Sidney"
All the door to the rooms had louvered doors. How cool is that? Great for the air circulation. But one would have to keep the sport nookie noise down I would assume.
Whether the studio will go with the house or not will be decided, but as for Warbucks buying the place, well for $49, 850,000.00.....I would really have to go see a sexpert with some new tricks in the boudoir, even with my experience. All jokes aside if he did buy it at that price I could learn to love New Jersey I believe. It would make for a hell of a blogger get together, no?


Meanwhile....I'll just keeping dreaming.

  4. That is outrageous. But if your blog had a get together in this house...I'd SO BE there. The place is incredible.

    What does Daddy Warbucks do with movie studios? Or is it top secret?

    1. He actually scouts and research's locations they will be filming movies. Once it's a go he then secures the contracts and paper work etc, film timing, movies facts about the area. But he never tells me what movie he is on, till it's wrapped...most times.

    2. "till it's wrapped" - that made me snicker; my imagination went wandering...

  7. While the Peapack-Gladstone area of New Jersey is beautiful, I agree about the state. the 15 most miserable years of my life. We hated New Jersey. The people are rude, crude and have absolutely no patience. BUT this home is magnificent. Daddy Warbucks sounds like he has a interesting job. The rooms are so elegant. And the views! When do you move in,lol.

  8. I love the kitchen, and I hope I can have something similar to that for about $49,500,000 less when it's time to buy something.

  9. HOLY SHIT! You could have a hell of a drag ball there. The house is stunning. Would it be called Borghese Hall or Warbuck Estate? Or the Borghese-Warbucks Manor? At least there's plenty of room for the stable of house boys.
