BTW, Tommy Hilfiger's CEO resides a quaint 15 miles from my home, in Zephyr Cove, NV., a neighboring community of So. Lake Tahoe. Well his home is on the auction block. Before my accident I detailed a gentleman's vehicle whom worked on the original const. of the home. He told me of the to-scale recreation of TITANIC'S Grand Staircase incorporated into the home. According to a close friend of mine, the picture of the staircase is available on the Internet...I have yet to seet it. However, I surmize it may have been built by the same Co. that built the replica staircase for the Tropicana TITANIC exhibit. So if you happen to be worth *millions* and adore TITANIC...that's the home for you!

I searched online, I believe I may have found an image of the staircase reproduction. (I would post a link but it would probably cause some space issues, search Google Images for "tommy hilfiger grand staircase titanic", it should be at the bottom of the first page).

Jeremy, the home is of new const. We passed the turn-off just the other day on our way home from Oakland/ CA. It has a private road, therefore high security. It sits up on a ridgetop with a grand view of east Lake Tahoe, NV. Pardon my earlier mention of *auction* block...the home is for sale.

Jeremy: Excuse me, I just had a telephone conversation with my Mother who worked at Sahara Tahoe Casino in the 1970's, not far from the Hilfiger's CEO estate. She reminded me the home used to belong to Wayne Newton, apparantly the estate is some 70 yrs. old, however the TITANIC's grand staircase was, of course, a newer addition of the CEO's.

UPDATE: From my friend that lives not far from the aforementioned home. It was the estate that belonged to Wayne Newton, the home was *not* Newton's, it is of a more recent const. as I previouslly noted. My friend was in the home (It's only a cool $130 million) but did'nt make it to the grand staircase. Too bad, my friend Mike has a top-of-the-line digital camera :-(

POSTSCRIPT - Much of the wood used to construct the interior of the home came from France. I am certain some of the *old* wood was incorporated into the TITANIC staircase.
