The nearly 4-acre riverfront acreage, called “Riverbend,” is set up like a private resort with an outdoor kitchen, a pond and a swimming pool with a dive-in theater.

It boasts a French Caribbean-style main house, two guest cottages, a dock house and a barn with an 8-car garage. Altogether, the 2009 estate includes eight bedrooms and nine baths across 28,000 square feet of living space.
