The home also features a long list of luxury amenities including its own exercise room, media den, kid’s wing equipped with a playroom and a 6-car garage.

Outside the entertaining is taken to a new level with two cabanas equally 2,000-square-feet, private sport court, putting greens, resort style heated pool and spa, and an outdoor kitchen that even includes its own pizza oven.
