Location: 6510 New Market Way, Raleigh, NC
Price: $23,000,000
Square Feet: 21,800

This 21,000 square foot mansion overlooks the 18th hole of the North Ridge Country Club. The owner of the home, investor Wendy Painter, received the home after her divorce from Dean Painter. Dean made his fortune when he sold his computer leasing company, CLG, to Centura Bank. If the mansion were to sell, it would be the priciest home sale in Raleigh history. The mansion contains 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 9 fireplaces, commercial sized kitchen used for catering events, a grand foyer with two staircases on either end, a grand parlor, a den, a loggia, a dining room, a game room, 2 elevators, 2 offices, a gym with spa, a tanning room, a wine cellar, and a swimming pool with terrace.

    OMG the previous commenter is right.
    Who would build a house there?
    There are small houses to the right and an apartment complex in front.
    Whoever built that house was mad and even crazier for trying to get that price.

    Paying $23,000,000 for a house like that is beyond reality, its stupidity.

    They’ll be lucky if they get $15 million.

    I live in raleigh. This home was listed for 23,000,000 in 2005 but was reduced to 16,000,000 in 2007. Now its not on the market at all.

    Um, well, I'm one of those that live in this supposedly "low income" condo community, and let me just say your perception is wrong. I stay home and my husband earns 6 figures. We are very far from "low income" thank you! Also, the small houses you are referring to; let's see, Bill Cowher owns one. You know, the former coach of the Steelers. There are also several million dollar homes that you mention as "small". Please be careful about your misinformation. Many people in the "small" million dollar homes have recently moved into the "low income" condo community you have spoken of. They get older and come on our side. I don't think the Painters are mad or crazy. It's a great area!

    That’s a wonderful mansion with a very beautiful exterior.

    I want to focus on the interior:It’s very beautiful, warm , well designed and very very friendly.To tell you the truth and judging by the 2 interior pics, the interior definitely
    gives a friendly tone to the whole house.The decoration is superb, the great room in the 4th pic is one of the best I have ever seen, while the floorplans show serious piece of architecture and not something cheap.

    You can’t love this astonishing mansion!

    The house is on the market for $8.9M now. I guess that is supposed to be a bargain considering the original price.

    There are some very nice homes in the neighborhood but if I had multi millions to spend I’m pretty sure it’d be on a nice beach and not in the middle of N Raleigh.

    I think the interior of this house is undesirable. There are other houses in that neighborhood that are designed and decorated much better than this McMansion.

    To the person talking about the ‘low income’ neighborhood. You have no clue what you’re talking about. I do not live and have not lived in the neighborhood but I do inform myself before making comments about things I know nothing about.

    This is an amazing home.

    The commenter was talking about the low income condos … not the neighborhood being low income….
