57,000-square-foot Ohio Longaberger house for sale

COLUMBUS — The head of the Longaberger basket company is looking to sell her 200-acre estate in central Ohio — and is asking $15 million.

The Columbus Dispatch reported the property put on the market by Longaberger CEO Tami Longaberger includes a 57,000-square-foot house with seven bedrooms, a six-car garage, a helicopter pad and a ballroom wing that can fit more than 300 guests.

In comparison, the Akron home of former Cleveland Cavalier LeBron James is a mere 35,400 square feet.

Howard Hanna Real Estate Services of Cleveland is listing the Longaberger estate. President Howard Hanna IV told the Dispatch the house may be the largest in Ohio.

Longaberger said she’s selling because her two children have moved out and she spends most of her time travelling for work.
