5315 Lakemont Court, Murrysville
From the 1,000-bottle wine cellar to the 10-person onyx dining table, this Mediterranean-style estate exudes luxury. The governor’s driveway and fountain welcome family and friends, and lead into the dramatic foyer and living room, with soaring ceilings, full-length windows, and the ornately detailed fireplace and columns. The grandeur of the four-bedroom, three full- and two-half-bath home continues outside, with more than two acres of private grounds. Take a dip in the heated pool, complemented by two cabanas; stroll the walking trails around the pond; or overlook it all from an upper piazza.
