You don't have to leave Oklahoma to feel like a celebrity -- just ask country entertainer Rodney Carrington, whose $8.5 million five-bedroom mansion in Tulsa, OK, offers nearly 20 acres of "total privacy," says listing agent Darryl Baskin.
Carrington is best known as a country music comic, with three hit singles, including "Camouflage and Christmas Lights" and "Don't Look Now." He also starred in an ABC sitcom (coincidentally called "Rodney" and set in Tulsa) from 2004 through 2006.
The 7,526-square-foot home's stately interiors feature dark woods and neutral walls, from the wood inlay ceiling in the grand office to the majestic master bathroom, with floor-to-ceiling vanities.
But the home, as beautiful as it is, pales in comparison to the grounds, filled with acres of lush lawn, multiple lakes, and a barn and surrounded by "a million dollar's worth of stone and iron fencing," says Baskin.
Visitors won't even spot your home until they're a half-mile away -- and even then, they'll need to cross "a good football field's length" of yard to get to the front door. There's even a guardhouse out front for security.
"It's truly a celebrity's home," says Baskin. "You can't believe that you're 3 miles from a Wal-Mart and you have that type of palatial experience. It's magnificent."
