A new type of house, the pizza house, made by Carrie Dennis, could be taking over gingerbread houses’ domain. But that’s not the kind of pizza house that's for sale here.
Anthony Sbarro, son of the founders of Sbarro Pizza that was founded in 1956, just put his newly built Southampton home with custom furnishing up for sale for $32 million, according to an article by Candace Taylor for The Wall Street Journal.
Although Sbarro started building the nine-bedroom house about a year ago, he decided not to live in it and bought a Southampton property on the water instead, the article stated.
From the article:
The traditional-style house measures about 14,000 square feet and sits on 2 acres with a heated swimming pool and a tennis court. Inside the house, there is a movie theater that seats about 15, a gym and a mirrored ballet room originally intended for Mr. Sbarro’s wife, Victoria, who he said “loves to dance.”
Italian architect and designer Achille Salvagni said he selected all the fabrics, artwork and furniture for the house and had them shipped from Rome. He added that he custom-designed many pieces, including the hand-woven Southampton map rug and bronze door handles.
Sbarro, at age 70, is retired from the family pizza business which the family sold to private-equity firm MidOcean Partners in 2007, according to the article.
But that's not to say the chain doesn't still maintain a decent level of popularity:
