  • Just read the entire description for what some residents of Mount Pleasant refer to as the “Liberace” house (emphasis mine): “Prius performance/Maserati’s body, leg-room/head-room, wind in your hair, where open air seating’s got you dealing with feelings that the ceiling’s not there, where moonroofs/skylights mean bright days/peaceful nights, openly social, private reposals, retreating to suites, a lower complete, guest-stashing, check cashing, airbnb, or extend the family via casual encounters in a massive master shower.”Casual encounters all yours for $998,500.
