The Most Expensive Homes‘ Team is pleased to present you the “Guitar House”, so named for its sprawling guitar-shaped driveway, is the largest estate in Alabama. According to DeCaro Luxury Auctions, which is selling the property (without reserve) at an auction on October 31, the 15-bedroom mansion, set on 27 acres in Birmingham, has a private horse riding arena and access to private pastures and riding trails in the Appalachian Mountains.

Inspired by historic French and Italian castles of Europe, the house was built by European artisans who took residence in the home to handcraft the stucco, marble, limestone and decorative features.
