See Inside: SC Mansion Has Hidden ‘Town’ Inspired By NYC Street

While the 12,000 square-foot mansion boasts six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, it’s the jaw-dropping entertainment level that transports you to another era. Modeled after a New York City street in Mr. Duffy's old neighborhood in the Bronx, the couple created a town set in the 60s. It features everything from a state of the art movie theatre, vintage soda shop, toy store, English pub and arcade.
