In New Canaan: Kubla Khan's Pleasure Dome

If you think the headline may overstate the lavishness of this estate, check out the video, one of several real estate videos for homes on the market in New Canaan.

There's no address for the New Canaan home featured in this real estate sales video, but perhaps Xanadu doesn't need one. The house on six acres has not only a large pool, but a pond; not only a large home theater for video, but an auditorium with a stage, and the lavish features continue to mount through the four-minutes-plus video—we won't spoil the last minutes with details. Just let the video unfold in front of you.

These other videos of New Canaan homes for sale were recently uploaded to YouTube. Each listing links to the YouTube video (also attached to this article). Each home is also shown on the map attached to this article:

472 Hoyt Farm Rd.

289 New Norwalk Rd.

349 Ponus Ridge Rd.

713 Silvermine Rd.

705 Weed St., Unit 7

The interior of the "Pleasure Dome" is anything but a pleasure. The interior decorator/designer on what I think is supposed to be a spec house is stuck in some kind of late 80's/ early 90's nightmare. There was nothing to "spoil". It was hideous.

Oh I love the pleasure dome

Truly horrifying.

I want to record this here for posterity, because at some point (probably when the house is sold) the video itself will be removed from the Web. Here's when various features first appear in the video: 0:38 -- the pond 0:45 -- the swimming pool 2:14 -- the home video theater 2:32 -- the game room 2:41 -- the bowling lane 3:11 -- the indoor golfing spot (I'm not sure of the correct terminology) 3:31 -- the auditorium and stage, with a piano 3:48 -- a basketball court or half court (is this the same room as the auditorium?)
