If you've got $8 million lying around and dream of living in a decadent European-style estate without leaving Ohio, here's your chance.

Up for sale: A 32,675-square foot behemoth on the Scioto River.

  • 4500 Dublin Road is the second-largest private home in Franklin County, behind only Les Wexner's New Albany estate.

Details: This Tuscan-themed home is adorned with hand-painted murals, pillars around every corner and copious balconies, including one overlooking the front entrance.

  • Other features include ā€” deep breath ā€” a clay tennis court, sauna, hair salon, commercial kitchen, indoor waterfall, elevator, sledding hill, pool and river docks.

All told, there are 16 bedrooms and 26 bathrooms, including the accompanying guest cottages and apartments.

The intrigue: The home dates back to 1990, but original owner Don Ettore was inspired by his European travels and had it completely rebuilt.

  • He died in 2001 before the renovations were complete and the house has changed hands several times since, at one point owned by Charley Shin of Charley's Philly Steaks.

Listing agents: Stephanie Hyer and Scott E. Street of Sotheby's International Realty.
