Scarsdale Colonial Comes Wrapped in Ivy (House of the Day)

Embracing its leafy surroundings, this large Colonial home comes gift-wrapped in ivy and exquisite landscaping. @HoulihanRE snagged another #housepornthurs win by submitting this home in swanky Scarsdale, N.Y. The entry beat out @DouglasElliman's submission in a duel on our Facebook page.

The house's design takes a quaint home style and puts it on steroids: The home stretches a whopping 12,000 square feet.

It has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a three-car garage with ample space for a pool -- should the home's buyer find the $7.45 million listing lacking in extravagance. Amenities include a large exercise room, master bathroom, walk-in closets and a fully-stocked kitchen.

The interior is decked out with exquisite furnishings and materials, and it also boasts a sound system that can blast tunes into all the home's many rooms.

The #housepornthurs contest is a weekly Twitter conversation hosted by @aolrealestate. Tweet listings every Thursday to AOL Real Estate -- with the hashtag #housepornthurs -- for a chance to have one of your submissions featured as a House of the Day the following week.
