Ornate, over-the-top Florida estate comes with Oval Office

The 1,700 “stars” hand-placed in the basement theater’s ceiling to match the configuration of the home’s actual night sky is just the tip of the ornate iceberg in a 25,000-square-foot, six-bedroom, 12-bath lakeside Tampa-area mansion built by a millionaire couple in their 60s and profiled recently by the Tampa Bay Times.

The $7.5 million home’s labyrinthine excess includes a 900-square-foot replica of the White House’s Oval Office, a memorabilia room with Elvis and John Lennon items, a 159-inch theater screen, two full-time staff to upkeep the home and grounds, a $2,000-a-month energy bill, Cher’s bed and a propensity to hide its owners from each other.
