AL.com reports (http://bit.ly/1MxaDW4) that the 55,000-square-foot mansion on a sprawling 27-acre estate in Shoal Creek sold for $4 million at an absolute auction on Saturday.
The Versailles-style estate is nearly as large as the White House and was owned by former health care executive Larry House. It has a long, guitar-shaped driveway and a dozen fireplaces.
The mansion has been on the market for several years, and Shelby County tax records had previously listed the value of the home at $12 million.
The 15-bedroom, 22-bath home features amenities including a 25-person theater; a wine cellar that can hold 2,000 bottles; and a 3,000-square-foot guest house.
The home’s equestrian center features a barn with a lounge and an 800-square-foot loft apartment.
