    I think what clinches the banality of Thundercat Manor for me is how it just sort of stands alone on a few acres of grass devoid of any real landscaping.

    Suggesting it only has a graduate student apartment's load of furnishings inside.

    Believe it or not, there are actually children that live there (or at least visit frequently on the weekends). Several times I have passed by there and there have been a couple of younger kids (maybe 5-10) in the yard.

    But yeah, the fact that it sits alone in a big grassy field with not an iota of landscaping is just... funny? sad? creepy?

    I was going to say "quintessentially American" -- though perhaps our lawns and our need for lots of land are not our finest qualities. :-)

    I'm not sure I would consider almost 14,000 square feet on 10 acres to be "quintessentially American," but your experience may differ.

    Anyone know what the huge sign at the driveway says? I always assumed it was some sort of religious retreat/compound.

    Update: It seems to be an extended-family home and farm for these folks:

    Peking Gourmet Inn was allegedly George H. W. Bush's favorite restaurant.
