A dictator’s dream

50,000 square foot Utah mansion that would suit an exiled dictator or lottery lout

 

Money and taste don’t necessarily go together and no more is this rule proven than in a $30 million (£18 million) Utah mansion featured by the property blog Homes of the Rich recently.

Tom Mower Sr. is a man who does everything LARGE

Standing on a plot of 75 acres, the 49,568 square foot mansion was built for a businessman named Tom Mower Sr. in 2010 and includes 6 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. It has a heated driveway, garaging for 8 cars, a movie theatre, a 2-lane bowling alley, an indoor shooting range and an indoor basketball court.

 

Mower, who amongst other things has organised the most bizarre things named “Tom Mower Sr. Prison Camp Training” at the property is plainly a man whose extravagance knows no bounds. There’s a Maybach in the garage and an electronics room that’d leave Einstein feeling puzzled. Unsurprisingly, it’s been on the market since August 2012.

The selling agent, Coldwell Banker, describes the property as an “extraordinary home”. We’d take a slightly different tack. Our view? Well, it can’t be described as anything other than “extraordinarily horrific”.

  1. Utah is the perfect location for dictators and crooks. The Donny Osmond family and Mormons will make them see the errors in their ways. What deposit do they require?
