“We look forward to finding an owner as unique as this piece of real estate on auction day,” Udvar-Hazy said in a statement.

The Italian-inspired mansion is set on over nine screws of land, accessed by its own street, and features 20 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, a 30-car courtyard, and approximately 20,000 square feet of living space.
The lush outdoor space features an in ground pool with a pool house, a two-story guesthouse, a tennis court, and a walking/jogging trail that surrounds the perimeter of the estate and according to the existing Hilton & Hyland listing, the price also includes a separate lot for expansion or development opportunities.
