Sweet Guitar Shaped Home Alabama

When Lynyrd Skynyrd sang of "Sweet Home Alabama," I don't think this is quite what they had in mind. A 55,000 square-foot mansion in Shoal Creek, Alabama, currently on the market for anyone with $17.9 million burning a hole in their overalls, prominently features guitar-shaped landscaping as one of its many charms. Surprisingly, the home's current owner is neither a guitar player nor a collector, but rather the former CEO of a physician management company (yet another vain example of CEO compensation gone wild).

In addition to the guitar-shaped driveway and formal garden, the home features 15 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, a 13-car temperature-controlled garage, a 25-seat home theater, a full-sized commercial elevator, and a 2,000-bottle wine cellar. It sits on 27 acres with equestrian trails, four pastures, indoor and outdoor arenas, and a six-stall barn with attached living quarters.

Surely, you could also carve a nice recording studio space out of those 55K square feet, and just think of all the gear storage! To take a look inside this dream space, click here.
