Want to live like John Henry? Have $ 25 million to spare? You’re in luck. The Red Sox and Boston Globe owner’s 28,000 square foot mansion in Florida, complete with a sports bar and memorabilia room, has just hit the market.

Dubbed “The House of Peace,” and described in a real estate listing as “one of the most majestic and thoughtfully rendered properties in all of Florida,” Henry built the estate on 6.3 acres in 1995. Its assessed value is about $ 8.6 million, and its total square footage when you count both indoor and outdoor spaces is about 41,000, property records show.

Sporting 7 bedrooms and 19 bathrooms, the palatial home in the ritzy Le Lac subdivision of Boca Raton has high ceilings, natural light galore, a lakeside pool and tennis court, guest house, outdoor kitchen, library, recording studio, underground wine cellar, and a master bathroom outfitted with what appears to be the maximum amount of marble, including a big decorative letter “H.”

It also has plenty of amenities that you’d expect in a billionaire sports mogul’s pad, including a tricked-out sports bar and memorabilia room designed to showcase his teams’ glistening trophies and a Liverpool Football Club foosball table (unfortunately, they are not included). There is an Olympic-style ping pong set-up, and a kids’ area with “two car simulators,” the listing says.

Sounds pretty cool. But apparently the Henry family is looking to move somewhere else in Boca Raton, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The home is listed with Senada Adzem, of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The firm did not make the photos of his home available to Boston, but you can find them on its website.

Henry also owns a mansion in Brookline.
