It's All Yours, for only $22 million

GAINESVILLE, GA -- Just a few miles off Interstate 85, up the street from Chateau Elan, is a European style ranch that this simple sign can't begin to describe. There are the private roads on the property, the miles of fences, the 435 acres which demand seven-day-a-week mowing.

"It was a working horse farm at one time. It has everything going for it. Rivers run through it and you have the covered bridges," listing agent Tony Funari said.

In the 15,000 square foot house, there are beautiful masters and kitchens overlooking grand terraces, private rivers, babbling brooks and waterfalls. The owners handpicked every material, every item, every piece of art for the house, collecting from around the world.

The dining room chandelier is Baccarat crystal from the Biltmore Hotel in Chicago.  The rustic beams were selected from shipyards and cathedrals around the world. The movie theater includes a blinking marquee, even a life-sized stuffed ticket taker.

But it's the other building that is the stuff of many mens' dreams, a 40,000 square foot car barn. In it, a turn of the century saloon,with games of chance and room for a band. There is the full service gas station, an old fashioned ice cream parlor, and the classic car collection. The owner, who wishes to remain unnamed, sold his other 55 cars a few months ago.

Listing agent Tony Funari knows the $22 million price obviously limits who can call all of this home.

"Someone from the entertainment world, possibly some athletes, just someone like the owners someone who has a dream to have this kind of property and the world all to themselves," Funari said.
