The Jones Manor and Cravens Estate

First stop - a 28,000 sq. ft. tech geek's fantasy home outfitted with state of the art gadgets, The Jones Manor in Indianapolis. Then it's off to Pasadena to the lavish Cravens Estate adorned with century-old European pieces. 'Mega Mansions' is off to Indianapolis, Indiana to tour the home of genius inventor Scott Jones. This 28,000 square foot home is outfitted with some awesome technology and the whole house has a really fun feel; it truly is the home of the computer whiz kid who struck it rich. Scott Jones shows off his digitally controlled wine vault, the retina scanner that act as lock and key, as well as some pricy antique technology artifacts that he collects. Then 'Mega Mansions' hits the West Coast to check out the Cravens Estate in Pasadena California. The Cravens Estate was built in the early 1900's for around $10 Million (adjusted for inflation) dollars. They had a stash spot in the dining room for booze (because this was during prohibition) and an intricate, imported staircase and skylight that would be the envy of any multi-millionaire, then and now. And you might recognize The Cravens Estate from the movies too.
