There have been emails circulating about a presidential candidate's alleged mansion in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. We were left agape upon the sight of the series of photos. Its home interior design and exterior design is sure one tough odd to beat. Its period style theme makes it easy to assume that a lot of the home furniture or accessories in this mansion is either antique or an heirloom.

A little Googling led us to the truth. According to abs-cbnnews:
A check on the website, which investigates urban legends and forwarded e-mail rumors, however, showed that the e-mail has been circulating as early as 2008 and that the mansion was first linked to Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe.

A copy of the e-mail about Mugabe's mansion also had the same wording as the recent e-mail about Villar, with minor changes to make it appear that it was written for a Filipino audience.

The Snopes website said that the mansion is not in Salt Lake City but in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. It also noted that the mansion has been extensively photographed because it is sometimes used as a site for TV shows and films.

Not to disappoint, here is Manny Villar's actual mansion along Shaw Boulevard:

We hope he could open it up for public viewing even for just a day.
