Despite these tough economic times, there are still some folks that are ballin’ outta control!

You would expect that someone who owned a home with guitar-shaped landscaping to be an avid guitarist, or perhaps a collector, or at least some sort of music buff.

The owner of this prime piece of Alabama real estate is none of the above, but Larry House, the former CEO of MedPartners, a physician management company.

“The guitar was just a whimsical, great idea,” explains listing agent Pam Ausley. “You know he just thought it up; he didn’t make a lot of it but it’s gotten a lot of attention.”

According to Ausley, the guitar shaped grounds are just “a small part” of a house she likens to Versailles.

The home was built and designed by House in 1997 for a reported $26 million. House hired International Fine Arts Conservation Studios (IFACS), who worked on the Buckingham Palace, to install much of the detailing.

Listed for $17.9 million, the home has 55,000 square feet of living space and features high-end finishes like marble floors, mahogany floors and doors as well as gold and silver-leafing and hand-painted frescoes.

The home sits on 27 park-like acres and has equestrian trails, four pastures, indoor and outdoor arenas as well as a six-stall barn with attached living quarters. Located just 25 minutes outside Birmingham, and two hours from Atlanta, Ausley describes the surrounding Shoal Creek area as a mix between a national park and a resort with access to some of the best golfing in the country.

With 15 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, a 13-car temperature-controlled garage, a 25-seat home theater, a full-sized commercial elevator, and a 2,000-bottle wine cellar, Ausley says the home has gotten a little too big for House.

Must be nice…
