If houses could talk, the one that used to sit at 38 Windjammer Court on the Harbour Town Golf Links would be a Heritage legend.
Its owner, David Mansbery, learned about its hard-partying reputation from neighbors and Heritage goers after he bought it in 1999.
Some stopped by to tell him about the night during the Heritage in the 1970s that singer Neil Diamond played piano on the house's deck that overlooks the spot where the 10th and 16th fairways come together.
Others told him about a corporate executive's glass eyeball falling into a cocktail during a Heritage party. Newer versions of the story have the executive's date swallowing the glass eye and paramedics saving her.
Never miss a local story.
Someone dropped by several years ago, looking for a set of china lost at the house, Mansbery said.
"People still come up on the deck every year and either refresh the stories or confirm that they were there," he said.
Mansbery himself is no partier. He tore the original house down in 2008, replacing it with a 4,150-square-foot one. Now, there are family rooms for children and grandchildren with 270-degree views of the golf course.
And yet a handful of old-timers still manage to find the house during each year's tournament, wanting to once again stand on its wooden deck and reminisce about the wild parties.
Mansbery is happy to oblige. He knows they'll just stay for a minute, and then be off to look for a party house that's still in action.
