I noticed that the WSJ's featured House of the Week was built in 1941 for none other than Fulton J. Sheen who lived there for nine years. It's on a little more than a half-acre in Washington DC, and when it was built it had the unusual amenity of air conditioning that cost almost as much as the house itself (at the time, the house ran $35k), plus a recording studio and (of course) chapel. Lately the home has been rennovated, so there's no more chapel, but you can enjoy the pool with sauna, five gas fireplaces, two kitchens and four-story spiral staircase. If you have somewhere around the $7.5 million asking price.
