Back in November, we highlighted this absolute gem of a home in Saratoga Springs that listed for $18 million dollars.
When we published the story over a month ago, it was after we learned that its owner, Saratoga socialite Michele Riggi had an acceptable offer for the famed "Pallazo Riggi".
We're not sure what happened, but the deal somehow fell through, and the home is once again listed and back on the market. So, if you have a cool $18M burning a hole in your pocket, it may be worthy of a walk-through.
Or you can just look at the amazing pics in the gallery below!
The exquisite "Riggi Palace" located in Upstate New York has been nicknamed the "Jewel of Saratoga" and you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who will argue with you about that.
Built for Ron and Michele Riggi back in 2003, this jaw-dropping estate is located in the scenic Adirondacks and includes a "stone-clad Rococo-style main mansion and additional structures spread across a 1.3-acre parcel of land."
According to Zillow.com, this palatial estate is back on the market.
Palazzo Riggi features a 6-bedroom, 13-bath main house that is roughly 19,000 square feet and adorned with many award-winning details, such as hand-painted murals, heated walkways, an elevator, marble floors, and a spectacular bridal staircase!
But that's only the beginning - see inside the $18M Riggi Palace in our gallery below!
Other incredible amenities and details include:
- gym with steam shower
- bowling alley
- a pet playhouse
- movie theater
- wine cellar
- security building for guards to monitor the premises 24/7
- five-car temperature-controlled garage with an office.

Buffalo Bills Star Sold Sprawling Estate When He Left the Team-Now He's Back!
Cole Beasley is back with the Buffalo Bills but we aren't sure if the new owners of his estate will let him rent from them. When he left the Bills, he put his Orchard Park home on the market. It sold on October 17th for $1.2 million.
Check out Cole's former sprawling estate. It has 6 bedrooms, 4 and a half bathrooms, a three-and-a-half car heated garage, and sits on 4.6 acres. It also has stunning American Hickory Hand Dressed Engineered Floors. The home is nearly seven thousand square feet. It's pretty modest for an NFL player if you ask me.
