A sprawling Californian vineyard with over-the-top amenities has hit the market asking $15.9 million.

The 80-acre property, dubbed the “Villa De Madre Estate” is owned by Willis Johnson, the founder of auto auction company Copart.

The estate was built in 2002 with “quality and taste in mind throughout the design and build phase,” says the listing.

The main six-bedroom home comes with eight bathrooms, state-of-the-art entertainment and communications systems, an indoor pool, an elevator, a wine cave, soaring ceilings, fancy moldings and millwork and some seriously gaudy paintwork.

Then there’s the four-bedroom caretaker’s home, the 24,000-square-foot vineyard equipment barn, the two car barns which between them can hold more than 100 cars, and of course the 1950s style diner, replica main street, and vintage gas station.

This isn’t the first time the estate has seen the market, in 2010 it was up for grabs asking $22 million, and in 2014 it tried – and seemingly failed – to sell at auction.

Christie’s International Realty has the listing.
