A friend has alerted Land of Excess to this place in Indianapolis, Indiana.  All we can say is WHOA, THE PIMP HAS GONE WILD!!!!   The Huffington Post article about it on December 17 goes like this:

Outlandish Estate Built By Pimp Is Like Nothing You’ve Ever Seen (PHOTOS) A 26,000 square foot home on the market — for less than $1.3 million? Something seems amiss.  At 4923 Kessler Blvd. East Drive, it might be the absolute lack of any cohesive design focus in this immense, sprawling manor, dubbed “one of the most unique pieces of real estate in Indianapolis,” that allows the bargain pricing…The estate was the dream of Indy’s Jerry A. Hostetler, whom the Indy Star refers to as “the almost-famous pimp-turned-construction mini-magnate” in a 2012 piece. “Mr Big,” as the cops called Hostetler, bought the property in the 1960s when it was just a modest ranch home, at the age of 23. From there, he began buying up his neighbors’ houses and constructing a fantasy estate — in a style that can only be described as Midwestern Vegas Versaille.”
