If you are needing a little more room and don't mind a move to Covington, Ga, this 10,000 sq. ft. mansion could be the perfect movie collector item. The "Gone With The Wind" mansion is up for auction starting at $1 million.
Boasting 11-foot ceilings, 12 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, and 12 fireplaces (probably a few ghosts as roommates too), this Covington mansion just underwent a $2 million renovations, so it'll feel fresh with an old school charm. It also will have elderly people in awe as it was used in the iconic film "Gone With The Wind". (Check out pics)
According to a description of it on TopTenRealEstateDeals.com, “When Selznick International Pictures purchased the film rights to the book in 1939, Mitchell had no interest in being involved in the production except for doing one thing: She came across a photograph of an 1836 plantation-style house in the Atlanta Journal, cut it out and mailed it to David Selznick with notations that it was identical to the house that she envisioned for the book’s character Ashley Wilkes."
Better hurry though, auction ends July 25th.
My first question though is... who is gonna clean it? And who needs 12 fireplaces? I barely use the 1 I've got in my house. Oh... that thing is so haunted!
