Right in time for the holiday season, here’s a fabulous home with the kind of halls you’d just love to deck. Imagine the impressive seasonal soirees you could throw in this place! This 10,100 sq-ft behemoth has three levels filled with comfort and joy, including ten bathrooms and nine bedrooms. Three of these are faboo guest suites, at least one of which features its very own kitchen, to which you can conveniently banish meddling mothers-in-law who have one too many “suggestions” on how to properly cook a holiday feast.
And speaking of kitchens, in addition to the inlaw suite’s kitchen, there is a sprawling main kitchen (which is completely swathed in oodles of maple cabinetry), as well as what appears to be a third kitchen (!) in the vast finished basement. The cavernous dining room offers the perfect setting for forced mirth at those awkward family gatherings. Roast chestnuts over any one of the five fireplaces, and collect the kids to watch slightly inappropriate holiday classics like “It’s a Wonderful Life” in the tricked-out home theater. This is truly a home that can handle whatever holiday festivities you throw its way.
Aside from all of the fantastic holiday-friendly features, there are other things about this house that make it stand out from the crowd. For instance, I have never seen a Florida room quite like this one. The heated indoor pool and jacuzzi are enclosed in a two-story-high room that resembles a big gleaming white greenhouse, only there’s a massive staircase leading to a charming dinette set (huh?). The insanely well-equipped home gym is another gem--after all, you’ve gotta bulk up so you’ll be strong enough to lift the multiple bulging sacks of gold you no doubt schlep around with you on a daily basis. Fancy folk will be impressed with the home salon, complete with mani-pedi station. Getchyer hair did in complete and utter luxury! And if you need to get your husband out of your exquisitely styled hair, just send him out to the fenced-in basketball court to shoot some hoops. And finally, you can rest assured that this is the only house where you’ll find ceilings higher than your opinion of yourself.
The best news of all? This home is going for half-price! It was initially listed in January 2009 for $2.5M, but times are tough, so nowadays you can have it for less than half of that ($1.249M). The owner will also consider trades. Hmm, I wonder if they’d trade for my cute little condo?
