Don't go looking for the A.P. Macginnis home on the southwest corner of Bonnie Brae and Miramar--it's gone. But what a place: A 30-room house with an attic and a basement, Tiffany glass fixtures for the electric lights and hand-painted frescoes.  Did I mention the 12 bedrooms and nine bathrooms on the second floor?  The basement had a bowling alley, billiard room, gymnasium and a "plunge" (a.k.a. swimming pool). Cost was $80,000 ($1,758,963.88 USD 2007).
