Is this listing for real, or did the hand of God grace this home with all of his might, making it possibly the most fabulous piece of architecture we've seen in quite a while? With an asking price of $12.5 million along with $495 monthly HOA dues, the inside of the chateau is just as shocking as its price tag. Dubbed "The Estate at the Reserve," some of the most impressive details include Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam" painted on the ceiling of the home theater and an indoor pool with clouds painted on the tray ceiling. Listing all of the highlights in this home could make you breathless, but let's see if you can give it a shot without your face turning purple: an indoor basketball/racquetball court, elevator, wine cellar, au pair suite, wood-paneled library, arched doorways and windows, a chandelier in almost every room, and a walk-in closet that's bigger than some apartments on the market. It doesn't stop there as even the little details are chock full of intricacies. There are rooms with astoundingly ornate mouldings, ceiling centerpieces, beamed ceilings, and recessed lighting. The only complaint we can make is that the basketball court seems a little cramped. Other than that, this is the face of beauty. The total square footage is 20,000 with six bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
