WAXHAW, N.C. -- Perched upon its 22-acre home site is a European-style manor of epic 10,000-square foot proportions.  Built in 2004, this Waxhaw estate features five bedrooms, six full baths, and six fireplaces, all featuring the finest details.

“Now, we’re entering the master suite, you have your own Juliette tower, overlooking the pool.  A hot tub and double pass through fireplace of solid marble.  The ceiling is unparallelled,"  beams Nicholas Peters, of real estate company Peters and Associates.

As with many luxury homes on these days, finding the right buyer takes time.  After being on the market for one year, something out of the ordinary happened.

HBO came calling.

“They absolutely loved it.  They had the script written out before looking at houses, and came to me and said the furniture, everything is great.”

The Waxhaw home now plays it’s own role as the home of Kai Proctor, the notorious businessman in the center of organized crime in the show Banshee, produced by HBO, airing on Cinemax.

On our exclusive tour, we start out back with two Olympic sized swimming pools.

“If you saw the first episode, this is where a large scene took place.  A congratulations ceremony to the new sheriff in town.  Unfortunately there was a death in the scene, where a body fell in the pool…it was quite an interesting scene.”

On the show, an ex-convict, assumes the identity of a dead sheriff in the town of Banshee, Pennsylvania.

Fans of the show, will definitely recognize the grand formal living room, where in real-life is opulent and intricate and has a cozy at-home feel.  In the show?

“You just gotta watch. It’s got a little different feel…you’re going to have to watch for the details!”

Let’s just say what goes on is juicy, and 100-percent scandalous.

Downstairs, the home features a second kitchen, a full-sized gym, and a tricked-out game room. Every little details has been thought out, including the wall paneling, made from a diseased tree, custom to this room.

Peters believes in today’s housing market, it’ll take time for luxury homes to sell, so this is the perfect solution.  The home is also big enough that the family currently living inside was able to live in another wing of the home during filming.

So what if there is indeed a second season of the show and the home gets an offer from a buyer?  Well, according to Peters, that’s yet to be determined.
