Barack Obama may be moving into the White House but if you have nearly $10 million you can move into a replica. The NY Times had a story on Fred Milani who is selling his White House replica home in Atlanta. The 16,500 square foot home was Milani's dream home but now the Iranian-American home developer is being forced to scale back and sell his home. So far he's avoided foreclose twice and is selling a variety of other properties.
Inside the facade the Atlanta White House includes a hodgepodge of details include religious images, American political iconography and McMansion details like coffered ceilings, wrought iron banisters and a sweeping staircase. The home includes an Oval Office with a replica of George W. Bush's desk and there is a Lincoln bedroom with a picture of Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation painted onto a bedroom wall. Milani's Christian faith is evidenced in a topiary that says God loves you, a congregation room in the basement, a crucifix and a tapestry of the Last Supper. Milani told the NY Times that and his wife believe that God will help them sell the house. They are going to need all the help the can get. It is listed at $9.88 million.
