A 35,000-square-foot mansion in the Atlanta metro area just went on the market for $US13.9 million.

That’s $US26 million less than the mansion’s mysterious current owners spent to build the lavish home — and they never even lived in it.

The gigantic house is currently one of the biggest homes for sale in the US, according to toptenrealestate.com.

It features an insane number of ridiculous touches, including 5 kitchens, 17 bathrooms, eight bedrooms, a home theatre, a gun room, a wine cellar, a saltwater pool, and so much more.

Atlanta Fine Homes has the listing.

The ridiculously lavish Rose Hill Estate is located in Suwanee, Georgia, which is about 35 miles north of Atlanta.

The town of Suwanee is routinely rated as one of the 10 best places to live in the US, appropriate for a house this luxurious.

The main residence is nothing short of huge, with a whopping 35,000 square feet of interior space. It's one of the 25 largest homes currently for sale in the US. All of that space includes...

5 kitchens, including this one with custom cabinetry and custom chandelier.

17 bathrooms, including this blindingly white bath with columns and gold accents.

A princely powder room.

A gun room which doubles as a wine cellar.

And even a movie theatre with stadium seating.

There's a lot of grandiose Southern charm in the home, especially for one if its size.

The home is so big that it needs 20 HVAC units to heat and cool the entire space. A ton of rooms fill that space, including formal dining rooms, parlors, and eight bedrooms.

A 14-car garage is located on the property, detached from the main home.

A tunnel connects the garage to the main residence.

The mansion sits on 14.5 acres, most of it immaculately landscaped with patios, lamp posts, and water features.

Gardens and landscaped walls surround the house, true to the estate's name.

They snake through the property, creating what the realtor calls 'every gardener's dream.' There's even a dedicated flower room full of refrigerators, sinks, and arranging tables.

The property around the house looks more like a wedding venue than a private residence. This grand patio is perfect for entertaining.

This amount of land would be a nightmare to deal with for snow removal, so don't worry -- it doesn't snow in Georgia TOO much.

Out back the luxurious amenities don't diminish at all. Curving staircases take you down from the main house to...

... a saltwater pool! Complemented by an outdoor fireplace and landscaped pool area.

A pool house, separate from the main home, also sits in the backyard.

It's built in the same colonial plantation style as the main residence and matches it identically.

A half-size basketball court is also on the property.

The current owners of the mansion never lived in the home they paid $40 million to build, and their identity still remains a mystery.
