POTOMAC, MD (WUSA9)--Frank Islam and his wife, Debbie Driesman, spent their first Thanksgiving in their new home, Norton Manor. It's been 6 years in the making and as WUSA9's Andrea Roane explains, it is no ordinary house at 47,000 square feet.
In addition to the main house there is a 9,000 square foot guest house and a tea house. There are 14 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, a movie theater, a gym, 60 chandeliers. Never mind the number of kitchens. The sprawling compound sits on 9 acres. Some of the gardens are inspired by the Hampton Court Palace in England. Another is inspired by the Rose Garden at the White House.
