A beautiful 8-bedroom home set within the luxurious Grey Oaks community in Naples, FL is looking for a new stylish owner.

Valued at over $7.5 million, the 10,000 sq. ft. home is currently owned by local socialite and entrepreneur Carole Allen, former wife of software mogul Arthur Allen. If the name rings a bell, that’s because back in 2015 Arthur Allen and his wife Carole made headlines with the near-record sale of a Naples home set in another ritzy Naples community, Port Royal, that sold for an impressive $45.6 million, just $2 million shy of breaking an all-time record for the area.

Carole Allen, a celebrity herself, is best known due to her role in Paradise Coast Wives, a reality TV show that chronicled the “behind-the-scenes” lives of women living in one of the most exclusive and wealthy enclaves in the world. Her stylish touches can be seen throughout the elegant home.
