It's no castle, but this 113-year-old Fieldston mansion is very impressive in its own right. For starters, it's huge, measuring a whopping 10,450 square feet, thanks to an expansion by the current owners, who bought the house 30 years ago. Plus, it has all the trappings a mansion-seeker could want: an indoor lap pool with a jacuzzi, a heated driveway to melt the snow, Jerusalem stone and Venetian plaster walls, "multiple dining rooms," a tent-equipped terrace that can seat 100, and a professional-grade kitchen (to feed those 100 guests) with "multiple refrigerators." There's also an "au pair suite" with its own entrance, two offices, and eight bathrooms. The asking price is $7.95 million.
