A home in Brookville with a driveway that cost close to a half-million dollars is on the market for $7.95 million.

"They paid real attention to detail from beginning to end," says listing agent John Messina of Shawn Elliott Luxury Homes & Estates.

"When you drive up to the house, it's a very long driveway, and it's a gradual approach, and it's like you're driving to heaven," Messina says. "You wonder what can be inside, and then it gets better."

Inside, there's a two-story entrance facing a bridal staircase with iron scrollwork.

The home was designed by architect Gary Gallagher of Gallagher, Homburger & Gonzalez. It has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and two half-bathrooms.

There's a balcony off the master bedroom, custom cabinetry in the kitchen and windows imported from Germany, Messina says.
