Each week FOXNews.com picks its Top 3 over-the-top luxury listings to hit the real estate market. This week we bring you beach houses on both coasts and a little slice of country music history.
"Big Kenny" Alphin of the country music duo Big & Rich is selling his 20,000 square foot Nashville chateau for big bucks.
Alphin’s property, set in Music City’s fancy Green Hills neighborhood, has just hit the market for $10 million.
So what do you get for that kind of money? Besides bragging rights, of course.
Well, everything about the home is larger than life from the massive double-height, wood-paneled living room to the double-decker closet in the master bedroom.
This gorgeous house also features something you simply don’t see every day—an authentic 19th-century Irish pub, brought back to the States from Ireland in 2007.
The property’s sprawling backyard is home to a lush arboretum (designed by Alphin himself) surrounding a salt water pool complete with an underwater music system.
But the home’s most enticing feature, particularly for music fans, is the state-of-the-art recording studio where the Save a Horse singer has hosted friends like Jon Bon Jovi, Kid Rock and John Legend.
Of course, if you’re looking to spend even bigger bucks, take a look at this $59.9 million Laguna Beach mansion perched high on a bluff above the Pacific Ocean in a private gated community with access to a private beach.
So what does $59.9 million buy you these days? This 18,000 square foot property is composed of both a main house and a guest house. The main house has four bedroom suites, eight bathrooms and two powder rooms.
This is the kind of place you’ll never want, or need, to leave. The gorgeous mansion comes equipped with a personal wine cellar and tasting room, a fitness center with massage rooms and spa, and a movie theatre with a full bar.
The property also includes an eight-car garage and an oceanfront swimming pool with its own cabana and full bathroom.
On the opposite coast is a move-in ready Hamptons house in the tony village of Amagansett, just hitting the market at $4.425 million.
Rub elbows with summer locals like Paul McCartney, Scarlett Johansson, Billy Joel and Jerry Seinfeld in this 3,800-square-foot eco-friendly beauty with five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one partial bath.
Massive, bifold doors open onto a sprawling 2,500 square foot mahogany deck complete with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen for entertaining and an outdoor shower, in case you or your guests decide to do a few laps in the saline swimming pool. The 200-square foot pool house comes with an additional full bathroom.
Powered by smart-home technology, everything in the home from the lighting to the security system can all be controlled by an iPad.
But the real selling point of this property is that it comes fully equipped, furnished and designed. You don’t have to do a darn thing. Just pack a suitcase with your summer clothes and prepare to be wowed by this impeccably conceived masterpiece.
“Items that have been curated or specifically made for the house really appeal to this type of buyer,” says listing agent Deirdre Jowers of the Corcoran Group.
Inside furnishings, including Turkish linens and marble tables were carefully curated by the architecture and design firm, Studio Zung, one of the top 10 American architecture firms to watch according to Architectural Digest.
The grounds also come fully landscaped with both a zen and an edible garden
