This week's "posh place" is a Chandler estate on 10 acres that has long been the site of company retreats, weddings and even a performance by the Beach Boys.
From its size, you can see why.
Chateau de Vie, or "House of Life" in French, sleeps up to 25 guests, with nine bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
The seller is asking a cool $8.7 million for the luxury estate, making it the southeast Valley's priciest home on the market.
$8.7M will get you your own theater, pub – and secret passages
The 15,000-square-foot mansion, 1220 N. Kyrene Road, comes with a 22-person home theater, an English pub and game room and a gym.
Keep an eye out for secret trap doors throughout the home that lead to hidden rooms.
The surrounding grounds are like at trip to the countryside, with two streams, a lake, a tennis court and a guest house flanked by ornate iron security gates.
The home was built in 1984 by Phil Erickson, who founded Erickson Construction, according to Realtor David Rose. Erickson built the property as his family's personal home, complete with butler's quarters.
Despite the sprawling acreage, the water bill remains relatively low as the home uses the lake for its landscaping needs, Rose said.
