Got $190 Million to Spend? Willing to Spend it on a Fixer-Upper?

Unbelievably, the most expensive home for sale in the U.S. still needs a little work...

The most expensive U.S. home ever is now for sale in Greenwich, Connecticut. The $190 million Colonial-Victorian mansion sits on 50 acres of land and 4,000 feet of waterfront that dates back to the 1890s. But, the home isn't exactly move-in ready: The main kitchen is located in the basement (in the servants' quarters, natch) and while a new kitchen is being designed, dated electrical tubing is posing a problem.

What do you say? Would you cough up almost $200 million for an oversize fixer-upper? It's not like it isn't tempting...

The house sits on a 50-acre lot with 4,000 feet of water frontage, and includes a grass tennis court, multiple gardens, an apple orchard and a greenhouse. Don't you want your own apple orchard?

The mansion has more than 15,000 square feet of living space -- including 7,000 square feet of basement and attic space -- and an 1,800-foot-long driveway. The "single family home" has 12 bedrooms and seven full bathrooms. The master bedroom suite alone boasts a fireplace, sleeping porch (yes, please!), a separate dressing room and a marble bathroom.

The large heated pool is 75-foot-long with 14 sides (because a four-sided pool just won't do). Bonus items that we totally don’t need but now totally want include two stone towers, a stone carriage house with a clock tower, an elevator and a spa.
