I have to admit, in beginning to write this post, I am at a loss for a place to start. Nonplussed, really -- for the home that I am about to show you defies classification. Any single adjective refuses to cling to its indescribable façade. Instead, I find myself dumbstruck in the sheer overwhelming 'it-ness' that is this awe-inspiring mansion.
Where to begin? Well, how about just inside the front door:
See what I mean? What can be said?
You are now in the foyer of what is quite likely the largest home in Carmel, Ind. This is the former abode of Indiana native Richard Deer, founder of King Richard Cigars. Apparently the market for the smelly sticks is booming, because King Richard and his wife have relocated to Miami, leaving behind this ... house. Priced at $5.5 million, it is sure to attract just the right kind of buyer.
The 23,000-square-foot manse is an amalgamation of every good thing in the book, from the granite-pillared central entry to the walk-in humidor to the pair of themed basement bars. Oh, don't worry -- we'll get there. But let's continue with the tour of the upper stories first.
