Luxury Living: 6 Bedrooms, 10 Baths, Full Gym and More...
Check out another one of South Florida's hottest homes. This time, we go inside an estate that includes six bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a full gym, and a "media room."
(WSVN) -- "Hola es Belkys..."
I knew I was in trouble when I rolled up and had to wait for a gate to open.
"Hi Belkys welcome to Gables Estates."
And this was some estate..
Realtor Audrey Ross gave me the grand tour..
"This is the formal dining room.."
Eat drink and be merry with 10 of your closest friends in the homes formal dining room.
I ding the glass "It's real"
The best part of the dining room is the tabletop storage closet ---
I make a face and say "Get out...."
Linens, glassware, china..
"This is just evil..."
Everything, and anything, that goes on the table gets stored away neatly in here.
"Amazing...I've got one of these at home too...yeah right.."
Just around the corner -- the gourmet kitchen...
Audrey says, "Belkys you must cook..."
"I do cook as a matter of fact..."
Audrey adds, "Then you'll love this kitchen..."
"This kitchen is as big as my house.."
Gourmet all the way.
"...There's four ovens...four ovens.."
Custom cabinets for everything from pantry drawers, to the subzero refrigerator and freezer.
Audrey says, "Look at that everything's back there..."
"I think I broke it..."
Audrey says, "Oh no..."
"Thank goodness...I'd have to buy the house...Yeah, right sure...Like that's an option.."
And how's this for Luxury Living --- your own climate controlled wine cellar with room for 3-thousand bottles.
"You know you've reached the peak of fabulosity when you've got your own wine cellar in your house ok.."
Gotta work off the wine...no problem the full size gym, with top of the line professional equipment should help.
"It almost makes me want to work out...almost.."
"Here we have the media room...the media room, not the family room, not the T-V room, the media room.."
It's a media room -- cuz it's got what may as well be a jumbotron T-V right smack dab in the middle.
"How convenient it's on Channel 7.."
"Allow me to take you into the billiard room.."
Looking for fun and games -- how about some pool.
Maybe you'd rather swim in the pool than play pool.
Or perhaps tennis is your game. Then look no further than your own back yard
And while your at it...bring the yacht....you've got a hundred foot dock for it.
"I'm sorry I don't have a better adjective other than wow...but it's the best I can do right now.."
There's elegance and opulence at every turn in this 6 bedroom, 7 fullbath, 3 and a half bath, 2 story Meditteranean style home.
"Here she comes....miss understood..."
"It is not only built for entertaining it's also built for family living even though the house is very large and very spacious in many parts of the house it's quite cozy..."
Yeah -- so's my car.
The house is for sale for a cool 12 million bucks.
