NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.‘s megamansion in Mooresville, NC, zoomed past the competition this week. The speed demon’s equestrian estate is this week’s most popular home on Realtor.com®.
The huge spread features European-style stables, custom stalls, and an illuminated and enclosed arena with a viewing area. A delightful outdoor area was designed for entertaining thanks to a vanishing-edge pool, cabana, and putting green. It’s a real glimpse inside the digs of a NASCAR superstar, and fans responded in droves.
Aside from Stenhouse’s superior digs, you also clicked on a mysterious California house featuring an area eerily dubbed “The Room,” a somewhat creepy home in Ohio that’s been unoccupied for decades, and a sprawling Florida mansion with Disney theme park–designed bedrooms.
