It’s easy to assume that “America’s most entertaining” mansion is located on one of the coasts in a major city, but it’s not. In fact, what TopTenRealEstateDeals.com has billed as the most amusing estate in the country is located in Wentzville, Missouri, which is just outside of St. Louis. For only $20 million, a 20-acre estate with its own ferris wheel, lazy river, bowling alleys, equestrian facilities, and more can be the perfect place to spend cuffing season this fall and/or another lockdown (which sadly seems imminent). Let’s go inside this delightful palace …
The enormous 15,638-square-foot home was built in 2001, reports TopTenRealEstateDeals.com. It boasts seven bedrooms; 13 baths; formal living and dining rooms, as well as the informal version of each; a two-story library; two gyms; laundry rooms on two floors; large kitchen with two islands and clerestory windows; family room off the kitchen with fireplace; a theater room with a bar; and a spacious four-car garage.
The entertainment factor is kicked up to level twenty million by the seemingly never-ending things to do on the property. Bowling lanes, game rooms, and an indoor basketball court will satisfy the owner’s competitive side, while the outdoor resort-style pool complete will a lazy river, swim-up bar, two slides, and grotto with waterfall provides a staycation anyone will enjoy. There’s also a two-story pergola overlooking the entire pool area.
The designer of the property didn’t forget the kiddos either. The estate has a playground and children-sized ferris wheel.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of the $20 million estate is the equestrian facilities that include horse stables, riding ring, paddocks, and acres and acres of land to ride horses. The property also includes a lake and miles of white equestrian fencing.
And since you gotta work hard to play harder, the mansion also has a boardroom and conference room. In addition, there’s a chapel on the property.
“America’s most entertaining” mansion — which is listed by the VIP Group, Coldwell Banker, Lake St. Louis, Missouri — certainly rivals most resorts and some amusement parks with all its features and available activities. It also seems like the person who had this property built never expected to leave it.
