It did actually.

Moving on, “The home offers approximately 11,000 square feet of complete luxury, 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and several dens. The floor plan is incredible with the entrance foyer opening to a huge living and dining room with 30 foot high ceilings.”
Outside, “The maturely landscaped property has a gated circular driveway and water feature at the front and a sun soaked, private swimming pool, hot tub, gazebo and huge level yard and sport court at the back.”
And inside, “There is a climate controlled wine room, gym, workshop, complete outdoor entertainment kitchen, and self-contained nanny suite.”
