Is this the nicest house on earth?

Perusing through James Edition this evening as I often do I, I stumbled across this house for sale in Water Mill, Suffolk County NY. After looking through the photos of the residence named Villa Maria I was honestly asking myself is this the nicest house on earth? Up for sale at the moment for a paltry $69 million US its got to be one of the most magnificent pieces of real estate in the world – perhaps that’s up for discussion? Here’s the low down from the James Edition listing.

Villa Maria is a private and magnificent waterfront estate with stately gardens and glorious views of Mecox Bay. The residence is offered on 11 acres with a dock and 1000 feet (+/-)of bulk headed waterfront (additional acreage is available). The present owners, world-renowned designers, purchased this spectacular property in 2005 and began a 6-year project to restore the home’s original 1920’s grandeur while modernising it into a splendid 21st century estate. At 22,000 sq. ft., it has 11 bedrooms including a 6-room beautifully appointed master suite, a handmade stone and wrought iron staircase, a 60 foot living room with original fresco details and a state of the art kitchen. All principal rooms are brilliantly sunny and take advantage of the panoramic water views. The outdoor spaces feature a grand 2-story portico and a large stone terrace overlooking the wide lawn and bay. There is a waterside pool, pool cabana, tennis court and a charming two-bedroom guesthouse. 

See for yourself!
