It's known as the Goldberg Mansion and dates back to 1896. It sits on the corner of Summit and Newberry and boasts incredible French gothic architecture, both in the main residence and the carriage house.

As you'd expect in a mansion of the era, expert craftsmanship abounds in the wood and brick work. There's also an original turret -- which you can step into from the inside -- plus a ballroom and finished basement. Ornate is an understatement.

Turns out he was a hot-headed attorney and never actually lived in the property. Learn about the explosive story that led to the lawyer being disbarred and who eventually took over the property in this week's podcast.
