OK, so after today's financial news, you might not be in the market for a mansion. But if you are, you're in luck! An ad in yesterday's Arizona Republic announced that on October 25, the "former home of Sen. John & Cindy McCain" will be auctioned.
It's the onetime central Phoenix digs of the GOP presidential nominee and family -- they moved not long ago to a luxury condo, and the house has since been remodeled, according to The Larsen Company, the group conducting the auction.
You can only tour the place by appointment, but here's the description of the home at 7110 N. Central Avenue:
"This gracious, private residence is gated and secure on a sprawling 2.7 acre estate lot. The home features 15,000 sq. ft., 13 bedrooms, 14.5 baths and 7 car garage. Extensively enlarged and remodeled in Old World design. This home is perfect for a private residence or corporate retreat."
