This five-bedroom estate would be desirable enough without a celebrity pedigree but there will no doubt be bidders who want to say they own The Answer’s old estate. A.I. sold the home to Saladworks CEO John Scardapane in 2007 and as of this week, the estate is on the market again.
Clocking in at practically 13,000 square feet, the estate is palatial and has amenities to match. It offers five bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, a separate apartment with kitchenette, a “restaurant-quality” bar, a library, a gym and a home theater. And that’s just the interior.
The reception hall is two stories and includes heated marble flooring that leads to a living room with 20-foot-tall ceilings and Palladian windows. The first floor also features a library and banquet-sized formal dining room. The kitchen is gourmet and appliances are Viking, SubZero and Bosch. Upstairs the master “retreat” includes vaulted ceilings and double bathrooms as well as four other bedroom suites. The “apartment” includes its own kitchenette as well as a living area and private entrance. The basement is home to a seriously intense bar, a rec room currently being used a as a gym and a very formal home theater.
Outside there is a salt-water pool with its own pool house. Several terraces are attached to the home and a playset is also included on the grounds.
