A look at Ohio Mega-Mansions!

February 12, 2009


This massive Greek inspired mega-mansion is located on Cunningham Road in Indian Hill, OH. The home’s sheer size is amazing and it has 38,000 square feet of living space including a 12,000 square foot basement. It has a long narrow driveway that is accented by a man-made pond. The home has two turrets on either side of the front entrance which further heightens the grandeur of this home. There is also a staircase leading up to the front door. The home also has a subterranean garage, a basketball court, and what looks like an indoor pool.


This mega-mansion under construction is located at the end of a long private driveway off of Cunningham Road in Indian Hill, OH. It’s castle-like exterior is full of amazing architectural detail. The home contains a turret, numerous balconies, a motor court, a circular driveway, and a swimming pool.



This is the home of prominent class-action trial lawyer Stanley Chesley and his federal judge wife Susan Dlott. It measures in at a whopping 27,000 square feet. It is located on Camargo Road in Indian Hill, OH. The home was reportedly the most expensive single-family home listed in Greater Cincinnati ever when he purchased it for a mere $11.9 million. The home’s amenities include thermador kitchen appliances, apartment-sized closets, a minitheater, heated bathroom floors, space for an outdoor summer kitchen, a conservatory and a wine cellar. There’s also a game room, exercise room, a theater/media room, separate two-bedroom carriage house for live-in parents or hired help and an outdoor kitchen for entertaining friends and family. Judging by this amount of opulence, I guess being a lawyer is worth all the hard work after all.
