A former convent turned mega mansion, Villa Maria is a 22,000 square foot estate that sits on a beautifully landscaped 15-acre lot offering Mecox Bay views.

Designed by Frank Freeman in 1920, the $85 million villa was completely refurbished in 2005 (to both modernize the space while keeping in tact its Victorian era charm). Special features include a 60-foot formal living and dining room, a handmade wrought iron staircase, a 6-room master suite, and massive swimming pool and tennis court.

Those that love to entertain will surely go gaga for the home’s state of the art kitchen area, large reception hall (perfect for gatherings) and the gorgeous two bedroom guest house located on the property’s grounds.
