The house, which measures nearly 9,000 square feet and spans three acres, is on the market for $ 1,725,000.

Throughout the house, there are antique European wood floors, custom alder doors, decorative hand-painted walls, coffered ceilings and exceptional woodwork.

D’Angelo has personalized the entire property, which is called “La Dolce Vita” or “the sweetness of life”.

The “Jackson Hole Game Room,” as the list calls it, looks like a western lodge with its themed decor and log cabin walls.

The wine cave can hold 500 bottles and has an adjacent tasting room.

D’Angelo was a big car enthusiast, so he set up the five-car garage as a “club” with a crew lounge and bar. According to Sotheby’s, his garage collection includes a red Ferrari Spider and a 1965 Morgan “race green” which is a replica of the car that won the Le Mans race that same year.

Sotheby’s also notes that the backyard was designed “for big summer evenings, of which D’Angelo had plenty, welcoming hundreds of guests with elaborate entertainment including cigar-rolling stations, full roast pork and live music “.

Elsewhere in the courtyard there is a huge fieldstone patio, large pool and spa, outdoor fire pit, and beautifully manicured gardens.
