Discover the keys to your own private kingdom when you claim this elegant abode as your own. Rolling through the double gates, you’ll soon arrive under the porte cochere of the coveted “Castle of Montebello.” Only 30 minutes from the city, the property resides on a glorious 60 acres and was built by an heir to Magic Chef, who delighted in the details of the home’s design. Welcome guests through the fantastic foyer, with its sweeping circular staircase, and into the great room, well lit by a floor-to-ceiling window and limestone fireplace. Create drool-worthy cuisine inside the gourmet kitchen and serve dinner in the decadent dining room. Entertain in the stunning lower level, featuring a recreation room, wood-burning fireplace, and 1,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting area. The gorgeous grounds boast a 6-stall stable and walkability to Kimmswick’s restaurants. Once you retire to the master suite, with a jetted-tub-and-shower wet room, you can rest easy knowing that your dream home is incredibly real.

This 6-bedroom, 4 full-bathroom and 3 half-bathroom home in Imperial is listed for $2.295 million.
