The 14,000-square-foot (1,300-square-meter) mansion sits in the middle of the 20-acre estate. It houses seven bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and “palatial living spaces outfitted with custom furniture, chandeliers and draperies.”
Other features of the luxurious property include a wine tasting room, movie theater, gym and a double-island kitchen.
Limestone walkways were also placed outside the mansion, along with landscaped lawns, hand-carved fountains, a tennis court, infinity pool and spa.
The property was initially listed at $14 million. Danny Ross and Karly Williams of Pinnacle Estate Properties represented the South Korean royals, while Tiffany Hu of Hilton & Hyland held the listing.
Lee, a Korean American entrepreneur and founder of the VPN service Private Internet Access, was named the new crown prince in 2018. The title was given to Lee by the only remaining heir to the Joseon dynasty throne, His Imperial Highness King Yi Seok.
Lee, a self pro-claimed regular “dude” and Indiana native, started initiatives to launch a coding school in South Korea and invest in startup companies, according to the South China Morning Post.
