Welcome to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, sometimes referred to as the X-Mansion. The 24+ bedroom estate is a utopian upstate paradise that represents the pinnacle of luxury and awesomeness for both humans and X-Men. Complete with an automated, state-of-the-art training facility and fully retractable basketball court, this super home is truly something one must see to believe.
“Home is where the heart is, and my heart finds the mansion’s tranquil settings and decor very calming for my inner beast. Plus, you can hide a supersonic jet under the basketball court.” —Hank McCoy
Originally built in the 1700’s by Dutch settlers, this sprawling multi-acre parcel is located roughly 40 miles outside of New York City near its own private waterfront – Breakstone Lake. In its near 300 years of service, this estate has been the primary residence for New York’s elite society, as well as the students of Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters – an exclusive private academy run by renowned geneticist, Professor Charles Xavier.
“This home has been in my family for ten generations. And it speaks to me. Literally. I hear its thoughts.” —Charles Xavier
During its conversion from a great house to an educational institution, the property has experienced multiple upgrades to maintain its top-of-the-line security and in-home technology systems, including multiple backup generators, a one-of-a-kind electronic communications hub that can broadcast an array of global newsfeeds, and a fully retractable regulation-sized basketball court that conceals a private underground jet hangar.
“I could run around this place for literally seconds and not see every bit of it; it’s that big.” —Peter Maximoff
Featuring three lavish stories, in addition to a main basement and two sub-basements, this property is built to survive even the most catastrophic apocalypse. Complete with its own gourmet kitchen, with adjoining Butler’s pantry and climate-controlled wine cellar, you have everything you need to entertain the crème de la crème of the cultured elite. There’s even a picturesque attic greenhouse that boasts an assortment of rare and exotic plants from around the world.
A fully automated, state-of-the-art training facility incorporates the latest in custom martial arts, self-defense, combat survival programs, in addition to its own luxury health spa. Along with its world-class medical bay and treatment facility, conveniently located in the basement, you’re fully prepared to treat everything from sprained ankles and plasma burns, to unexpected lightning strikes and animal bites.
Two of the property’s most uniquely desirable features are its underground R&D lab, complete with a fully-functioning power amplification device, for mind control and telepathy, as well as its in-ground Olympic sized pool.
“This place is so rad that, the first time I saw it, I couldn’t believe my eyes!” —Scott Summers
