WORTH A MENTION: 47,000 Square Foot Mega Mansion In Cumming, GA

The dream home of business magnate Hubert Humphrey and his wife Norma, 'Le Reve' (French for 'The Dream') is a French-inspired stone mega mansion located in Cumming, GA, about 40 miles north of Atlanta and is one of Georgia's largest private homes. With no expense spared, the Humphrey's began to build the massive residence in 2005, taking some three years to conclude construction. It sits on 72 gated acres of land complete with its own private 18-hole golf course, formal gardens, streams, and camping area. Unfortunately, it was foreclosed on in late-2010 and sold for $9,500,000 after having been listed originally for $45,000,000.

Born in Macon, GA, Mr. Humphrey is a former railroad brakeman and conductor who went on to become a revered entrepreneur, founding and overseeing a number of successful organizations. Designed by architect Norman Askins, the behemoth home was expertly built by Jerry Bonner. It boasts 47,000 square feet of living space with seven bedrooms, 20 bathrooms, and two elevators. In addition to its "standard" formal living spaces, it also has a grand ballroom, a 50's-themed diner, game room, two-lane bowling alley, 27-seat home theater that is fashioned after Atlanta's Fox Theater (valued at $1,000,000+), a commercial-grade home gym, a massage room, indoor virtual golf, a recreation room, a toy train room, and so much more. Some additional outdoor features include expansive stone terraces, a lap pool, a heated swimming pool, pool house, sculpture fountains, tennis court, stables, and a pond.
