GLENN: Stu just came in and we were just talking about a story that he saw on NBC?
STU: I think NBC did the report, yes.
GLENN: It's a story about an old woman, 104 years old and they weren't sure if she was even alive and she has all of these old houses that she's never even been to, right? That's the story?
STU: Yeah, she has all this money that was left to her by her parents. When her mom died, she became really reclusive and has all these properties, some of them brand new that are, you know, tens of millions of dollars that she's never even been to but the staff is there. They are not run down. The staff is there keeping them up all the time.
GLENN: Now here's the thing. Stu's telling me the story and I look at Pat and I said, that's the house we saw. There's a house that yeah. I have to be careful. There's a house that Pat and I went to--I've wanted to see this house because it is like $54 million.
PAT: It's fairly well known.
GLENN: Very well.
PAT: It's like 17 acres -- or more than that?
GLENN: I think it's more than that.
PAT: 40 acres?
GLENN: Yeah, it used to be 100 acres
GLENN: And it was built in like 1930, I think, something like that. And she was a young girl over in France and she wanted it to be built like a French manor. And so she built this, just from what I had heard, this unbelievable home. Well, she has never set foot in it, not one day, and it's now for sale. And it is remarkable they kept it up the whole time. They've never updated it. So it's walking into a brand new house from, like, 1930. Pat and I, we were like, we heard about it and we're like, we've got to go to that house, we have to see it. And so we went and walking into the kitchen, it's a 1930s kitchen, brand new. It has all these servant buttons that, you know, you push a button and the bell rings and it pulls a number down I mean, it's bizarre.
PAT: It's got all the conveniences of, 1935. I mean, it's a really state of the art kitchen for the 1930s.
GLENN: For 1930s. And nothing's been updated, and it is in perfect condition.
PAT: It is.
GLENN: Never lived in one day.
PAT: Servant's quarters, all that kind of stuff.
GLENN: There's this big gate and at the two gates there's somebody that takes care of the landscaping and on the other side of the gate is another house that takes care of the home. And that's all they do. And the guy who, takes care of the home he's worked there for, what, 50 years or something like that? He's an older guy. He's never met her. He's never seen her, doesn't he gets a letter from her but he said the letters have stopped coming and he thinks she's dead. But NBC, I guess, went and found her?
STU: Yeah, and apparently it's a big thing. The Internet's looking to find out more details about this woman, Huguette Clark I guess is her name?
GLENN: I have no idea.
STU: They went and they found the hospital that she's in. She's 104 and she lives in a tiny drab hospital room that's not fancy at all, not nice at all and she's just there and she's probably never going to leave there. And these properties, even not even this one, there's dozens of them and they're all multimillion dollar properties and they haven't seen her in decades.
PAT: You should check out her property in Connecticut. It's pretty nice.
GLENN: Really nice.
PAT: It's amazing.
GLENN: We walked through. We had no idea what to expect and you walk in and it's like walking into the Great Gatsby. It's frozen in time.
GLENN: I wish we would have taken our camera because I would have loved to take pictures of it and put them up on the Internet. It's just bizarre. For the open house you had to get a ticket to go to the open house and so then you had a time that you would go and my wife was away and I was like, let's go. And I mean, it was just bizarre. And it was one of the weirdest, it was just weird. It was like walking into like a John Waters movie or something. It was just bizarre.
PAT: It was like going back in time.
STU: And they apparently have absolutely no idea. She has no heirs and they have no idea where the money is going if she dies. It's in this complete state of flux and they have no idea where this money goes.
GLENN: Well, they are never going to sell this house in Connecticut.
PAT: That's like $54 million.
GLENN: Yeah. And you can't you can't cut up the land, you know. You can't I think it was 100 acres and then years ago they cut it to 50 and then she put it in a trust and so you can't cut up the land you could drive by it and you'd never know. It's just these gates and you have no idea and it's just in the middle of the woods. And you drive your car in and I mean, everything is made 1930s. And so even the roads going there are little teeny, little narrow roads. It's bizarre. It is really bizarre.
