Keith had put it on the market for a cool $14.9 million a couple years back. There were no interested buyers and so the home went into foreclosure.

The home contains 7 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms , a grand foyer with curved staircase, a music room, a massive 2-story great room with floor to ceiling windows, a grand ballroom, dining room with gold leaf trim, gourmet kitchen with separate catering kitchen and pantry, family room, 2-story library with spiral staircase, a barber shop, a lounge, an ice cream parlor, a home theater, and a swimming pool.
