Paula Deen, aka "The Queen of Southern Cuisine," just put one of her Savannah, Georgia homes on the market for a whopping $12.5 million. The 14,500-square-foot property was designed with a French Caribbean aesthetic and is so spacious, it's described as a "private resort."

According to Deen's spokesman, the chef's "Riverbend" property is close to Historic Savannah and comes with a 3-bedroom barn, two guest cottages and 5.5 acres of land.

Deen outfitted her house with just about every incredible amenity imaginable, including an ice room with a professional ice machine, a croquet court and salt-water fish tank. And just in case that's not luxurious enough, the property also features a pool and "dive-in" movie theater. The aforementioned barn has an eight-car garage that's large enough to fit two RVs.

Though Deen owns multiple properties in Savannah, where her restaurant The Lady & Sons is located, her spokesperson cites commitments in Los Angeles, New York City and Minneapolis as reasons behind the sale. Deen plans to keep a smaller main residence in Savannah, but her spokesperson told The Huffington Post that she's eyeing a move to New York City in the near future. See you in the Big Apple, Paula!
