Feeling nostalgic for the classic high school combination gym and theater? The New Canaan, Conn. home of Rodney A. and Beverly Hawes has you covered. The sprawling compound on 6.34 acres is set to go to auction today and features a basketball court with stage, bowling alley, and movie theater. The couple built the fun house for their, count 'em, 25 grandchildren, but the kids don't visit often enough. So instead of trying to woo the youngins to Connecticut, the couple have decided to sell the estate—as quickly as possible—and move out West. Originally on the market for $12.5M, the house will go to the highest bidder sometime this afternoon.
