Palace of versailles

The $29.5million home is known as the ‘Palace of Versailles’ in California

A Montecito mansion known as the Palace of Versailles in California is hitting the market for a whopping $29.5 million.

The castle-style estate – complete with its own bank vault and secret tunnel – is in the same neighborhood as the likes of Oprah, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ellen Degeneres.

The five-bedroom, 10-bathroom estate spans 12,000 square feet. It is located near Santa Monica in the Birnam Wood community of Montecito.

Set on nearly 2 acres, the home features rare and luxurious features, including imported French marble countertops for the kitchen, gold bathroom fixtures and historic chandeliers, according to Jam Press.

The marble alone is said to be worth millions of dollars, with the masonry coming from Italy.

The house has five bedrooms and 10 bathrooms.
