Don’t be fooled. This mansion is not in Miami. The luxurious and flashy over-the-top villa, which went on the market last Friday for $ 4,995,000, is located in Potomac, Maryland.

Even by the criteria of the infamous wealthy part of River Road (called the “Millionaire’s Mile”) where it is located, the real estate known as “Casa de Amor” stands out. For one thing, the vast house with its red tiled roof and stone-white turret looks like it was copied and pasted directly from the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. This is in contrast to the typical Georgian and colonial homes in the area.

“It was designed to host the most incredible top parties in history,” said real estate agent Daniel Heider, who represents the seller. “That is, basically there is a scale replica of the Gianni Versace pool. [in South Beach].. It’s just an epic. “

However, the house has been on the market since 2016 and prices have fallen by more than $ 2 million since then. Previously listed by another agent, Heider’s team has decided to “shift the paradigm and eventually sell” with a new staging and marketing strategy.Haider recently threw Miami ViceA style party for 150 brokers at home, featuring bongos, electric pianists, frozen margaritas, and bespoke ceviche.

Heider doesn’t share who the seller is, but he built a house in 2009, put it up for sale in 2016, and now describes it as “using the power of this market” and “a very successful businessman.” Did. according to To Washington Business Journal, Carlos and May-May Horcasitas founded an oil company based in Germantown.

They obviously prefer a luxurious life. The list of hedonistic perks is extensive. In addition to the 50-foot pool surrounded by palm trees and mosaics, there is a fully enclosed two-storey recreation area. Private pool bath with steam shower. A huge dressing room with multiple islands in the master bedroom. Outdoor putting green. Glass and stone wine cellar. An observatory with an unobstructed view of the area.

“You stand up [to the observation tower] Through an elevator with glass panels and hand-painted frescoes on the elevator shaft, it reveals this incredible view of Potomac that it opens and can’t go anywhere, “Hider said. “Sellers really liked to enjoy cigars and a glass of wine or scotch.”

According to Haider, the house already has multiple offers and “is likely to be sold north of the currently listed location.” The agent recently sold a $ 7.4 million home across the street.

Haider is obviously excited about the house, but the internet enjoys it compared to the oversized ones Olive garden Also Cheesecake factory. “This house has always been the final boss of a very sticky Potomac real estate.” I have written 1 Twitter user. 1 TikTok commenter wrote“Well, this confirms it ….. money can’t buy good taste.”

In response to those criticisms, Haider simply says: “For every house, there are buyers.”
