This $25 million Florida mansion is made with $3 million in marble


This two-story neo-classical Italian-style villa can be described as nothing short of palatial. Designed by architect Ramon Pacheco, the Florida dream home was custom-built by the current owners to a whopping 18,000 square feet. Its width spans the waterfront of the Gables Estates lagoon, with marble-veneer walls and custom carved stone elements throughout. In fact, there's so much marble that a $3 million of it was installed, along with amenities like a huge master suite with dual two-person baths, with huge walk in closets, five additional en-suite bedrooms and a two-bedroom "staff quarter" you can call a guest suite.

Check out the custom-crafted kitchen with "butlers pantry," the 600-bottle custom wooden wine cellar, and library-office with a fireplace and private side entry. There's also an enormous gym with a full bath. The 200 feet of seawall leads to a 140-foot dock. The home is listed by the owner, Sandra Fiorenza of One Sotheby's International Realty, by appointment only.
