Built in a style known as 'French Caribbean', Paula Deen's old home is anyone's dream house.
The eight-bedroom mansion sits alongside the Wilmington River in Savannah, Georgia, as reported by Between Naps On The Porch.
The massive property has two guest cottages, nine baths, a large barn and an eight-car garage.
It also boasts of a gourmet kitchen with commercial grade appliances and an English style pantry.
The elegant home also features beautiful lanterns and a trifold Venetian glass mirror in the front porch entrance.
The living room relaxes anyone with its soft neutral tans, creams, and aquas. The walls look almost like water with its soft treatment.
The celebrity chef's kitchen features a custom-made copper stove, lightly painted cabinetry, green-painted cabinetry and stained cabinetry.
It also boasts of an antique brown shelving piece that dates back to the 1400s. An impression dish collection is also stored in the kitchen
The impressive dining room has a fireplace, giving anyone a cozy dining experience in the winter.
Given her success, it's not surprising Deen, now 71, could afford to have such an elegant home.
The celebrity chef and cooking show television host owns and operates The Lady & Sons restaurant and Paula Deen's Creek House.
She also made a fortune from her 15 published cookbooks, including The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cooking, which featured traditional Southern recipes.
She also owns a lifestyle magazine, Cooking with Paula Deen, which claimed a circulation of 7.5 million in 2009. Her memoir, It Ain't All About the Cookin', was published in 2007.
Her several businesses also include a dessert line, which includes signature pies Apple Crunch Top, Dark Rum Pecan, Old Fashioned Fudge, and St. Louis style Gooey Butter Cake bars.
Among her hit cooking shows were Paula's Party and Paula's Best Dishes on Food Network. Her first show, Paula's Home Cooking, premiered in November 2002.
