This Opportunist Moved Twice Before To Run For Congress. Here Are 4 Houses That He Could Buy If He Wants To Move Again Ian Prior | January 15th, 2014
As you remember from this New York Times profile, when Sean Eldridge first wanted to run for Congress in NY-18 so he bought a $5 million estate in that district. That didn’t work out because another Democrat got there first so Sean bought a new $2 million house in NY-19 to run against Chris Gibson, who has been serving his country since before Sean Eldridge was born.
But now that there is an open seat just a little north in NY-21, perhaps Eldridge sees a better opportunity to spend the next two years as a rubber stamp for his good friend Nancy Pelosi.
And boy, does Eldridge has his choice of multimillion dollar homes to choose from. Here are a few to get him started:
Known as Highlands Castle, this beautiful palace sits on over 7,000 square feet of land and has breathtaking views of Lake George and Adirondack Mountain. The property has not one, not two, but three structures – the Castle, the Carriage House, and the Gatehouse.
