Living Large: Explore Inside A $5 Million Mansion In Yonkers

YONKERS, N.Y. (CBS 2) -- Where do supermodels, rock stars and Academy Award-winning actors hang out when they're not in Manhattan?

The answer may surprise you -- Yonkers. The hot spot mansion known as Greystone Court is on the market and reporter Emily Smith got to take a tour inside the one-of-a-kind palace as part of CBS 2's Living Large series.

The 8,500 square-foot home is on sale for $4.95 million.

In European Fashion, the foyer leads straight to the ballroom, which has a 17th century English ceiling that was brought over from across the pond. The ceiling of the ballroom is insured at more than $1 million.
