“Once in a lifetime opportunity to rehabilitate an existing Gilded Age Mansion — one of the few remaining privately owned estate homes of this era,” the listing says. “Two-acre zoning offers a possible exclusive residential enclave.”

According to House Beautiful magazine, Swift left her presence in the mansion itself.

“On one of the first steps of the marble staircase — a few feet from the main entrance — is a piece of tape that reads ‘S-60,’ along with an arrow indicating where the Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter should stand while filming a scene for the video,” House Beautiful reported. “According to a realtor at an open house for Winfield Hall, the ‘60’ presumably refers to the 60 second mark of a scene.”
