The Skinny: When then-French President Nicolas Sarkozy spent three weeks of his summer at a sprawling Shingle-style mansion on New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee, critics balked at the cost. At $30,000 per week for three weeks, it would have been a sum nearly as much as Sarkozy's annual salary, but he claimed he was invited to stay for free by longtime friend and former Microsoft exec Michael Appe. Now, one lucky rich guy has the chance to secure the "Secret Service certified," 17,000-square-foot lake house for good. Listed for $13.6M, the mansion took six years to build and was completed in 2006. A waterfront fun house, the property includes a three-slip boat house, eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a home theater, a two-story great room, a billiards room, a dumbwaiter to transport firewood, near complete computer automation, and even an "Xbox room," a nod to Appe's Microsoft past, with a 60-inch plasma TV and blackout shades.
