In Pictures: The Bridle Path of the North

Sometimes freshly-married couples, closely tailed by their wedding photographers, would sneak on to the grounds of 90 Rocmary Place to snap a few pictures in front of the hulking marble statues, which were imported from Europe. There were also the drive-bys, where passengers would gawk from car windows. Now the 24,000 square foot palatial Versailles-inspired mansion in the tony development of Vaughan Wood Estates -- sometimes called the Bridle Path of the North -- is up for sale for $17.8 million.
