Yes, you can live in a 6,500-square-foot, five bedroom mansion right in New York City. It’s here, at 184-15 Hovendon Road in Jamaica Estates, Queens. The neighborhood is known for its large plots and spacious freestanding homes, but this property takes it to the next level. Not only is it gated in, but the interior is awash in marble, coffered ceilings and Venetian plaster walls. It’s got a new asking price since it first hit the market last year, with a price chop down from $3.488 million to $3.388 million.

The listing calls this a “Magnificent European Villa” that was custom built for the owners in 2012. It’s not hard to tell that they went all out in just about every room. The large entrance is flanked by statues, the iron gates protect about one-third of an acre, and the marble-floored foyer has an insane, “Brazilian cherry” spiral staircase. Just wait, words will fail you trying to describe every detail in the home.

The kitchen, of course, is also custom designed. It’s located on the first floor along with the living room, formal dining room, a breakfast room, family room, gallery, library and powder room. Yeah, that’s a lot of rooms.

Here’s the formal dining room, with a chandelier, marble columns, coffered ceilings and Venetian plaster walls.

The living room boasts more of the same extravagant details. In case you’re wondering, there isn’t a room in the house that isn’t decked out like this.

Although the office has a somewhat different design, with more wood and less marble, it’s still intimidatingly fancy.

The master bedroom has intricately-designed wood floors and yet another chandelier.

And the master bathroom has its own marble columns.

Even the basement, which is accessed by the spiral staircase, has managed to look extravagant. Are you overwhelmed by all the gold and marble? We certainly are. The big question remains: how much will someone fork over to live in all this Jamaica Estates extravagance?
