The largest show home in Edmonton's history is set to hit the market.

The 'Araliya' mansion in Edmonton's Upper Windermere neighbourhood measures an awe-inspiring 12,700 square feet.

The move-in ready estate boasts 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces, and a cascading waterfall in the front foyer.

In the basement; two custom wet bars, an HD golf simulator, a two-tiered home theatre and gym, provide plenty of options for entertaining guests.

And if that isn't enough, a rooftop patio provides stunning views of the North Saskatchewan River, and provides an additional 1,200 square ft. of living space.

The asking price?

A cool $6,179,000.

The property is the work of Platinum Signature Homes', founded by developer Sunny Sahni and his wife Seema, who designed the expansive interior.

"It's a big risk and this was a huge project and big money, but we wanted to do something different in Edmonton and tap into a niche market that I believe is in Edmonton,"  said Seema.

The estate was built 'on spec', but Seema is confident they'll find the right buyer.

"There are a lot of professionals in Edmonton that have the money, but they don't have the time or the know-how, they just don't want to get into the stress of construction or design."

Construction on the estate began in the summer of 2014, and the public was provided its first glimpse inside last month.

And if you can't afford the steep asking price, you can still step foot inside the mega-mansion, if only for an afternoon. 

Platinum Signature Homes plans to keep Araliya open for public viewings for at least six months before it's listed for sale.

"It was just a dream that we had and we finally had the chance to make it come true," said Seema.

"There's nothing comparable in Edmonton right now. A home like this, that's modern and brand new, with that kind of square footage and luxury, there's nothing like this out there."
