YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Yes children, this is Bob Guccioni’s palace of pornography and we can only imagine what debauchery has gone on here. Oh yes, babies, if the walls could only talk we’d all be flushed and bothered-up down there. Anyway, it seems the finances of this aging flesh peddler require he sell his monsterous mansion. It is without question a tremendous financial burden to own a house like this; the taxes alone on this property are a mind-numbing $281,000/year.

It may or may not surprise all you real estate fiends out there that this property is not flying off the market. At one point the house was even put out to auction to the highest bidder. If Your Mama remembers correctly (and you know she may not), the highest bid(s) did not come up to the mimimum and so the house remains up for grabs for an obscenely weathly investment banker or some another unfathomably rich individual that gets off on conspicuous consumption.

There is actually quite a bit of information out there on this house and it has all be lovingly and thoughtfully compiled (including photos, history, and the jaw dropping floorplans) in one location at the official property website. It’s worth a look kiddies…there are few in this world who live in this sort of spectack-u-lossity.
