Ferris wheels aren’t just for the fair. Bring your childhood dreams to life, or help your kids live it up at this fun-loving, 15,638-square-foot home in Wentzville, MO., that comes with all the carnival-fun and fancy of an amusement park.
For $20 million, you can take up residence in the mansion Top Ten Real Estate Deals called “America's most entertaining mansion.” According to the official listing, held by Coldwell Banker, the massive estate is “‘Luxury Meant to be Lived In’ built to suit multigenerational families with room for all.”
Located just outside of St. Louis, the home sits near an area for riding and other equestrian sports, so of course a stable is included. Boasting 20 acres (with nearly 130 available nearby), there’s plenty of room for riding and special events.
There is a fully-equipped playground, which is where the Ferris wheel is located. If children tire of the traditional fun, an outdoor pool has its own way of providing fun. Two slides, a swim-up bar, and a grotto with a waterfall give it a resort-like vibe that will keep children of all ages busy for hours in the summertime.
Beyond that, there’s still a sports field, raised bed gardens, a lazy river and more. The property also includes a lake, which adds to the outdoor beauty and grandeur of this beautiful home.
The house itself is just as impressive, with seven bedrooms and 13 baths to accommodate a big family and guests. The living and dining rooms are particularly special, coming in sets of formal and informal, offering plenty of options when it comes to hosting dinners or parties.
The interior is large enough to host a two-story library for people who have always dreamed of living in a pile of books. For exercise fanatics, two gyms and a lower-level basketball offer the chance to work out with no one looking over your shoulder.
The entertainment set wouldn’t be complete without an indoor theater and bar, a dance floor, bowling lanes, a conference room, dual-changing rooms and more. It seems evident this house caters to all a family’s various needs with options for each person based on all manner of hobbies and interests.
Just because the house contains extra special elements doesn’t mean it lacks in basics. Two laundry rooms, a family room and an elevator round things out. Yes, there’s a hot tub, too.
Truly an entertainment oasis, this property needs to be seen to be believed. Peruse more pictures of the home below, and visit the official listing to learn more.
