If you thought Will Smith’s 53-foot long trailer was extravagant, wait until you see his palatial estate.

The actor and wife Jada Pinkett Smith opened up their 25,000 square foot mansion in Calabasas, Calif., for a cover spread in the September issue of Architectural Digest.

Complete with a lake, swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, the sprawling estate looks more like a full-service resort than a private residence.

Will told Architectural Digest the idea behind the house’s circuitous floor plan was “to create an infinite cycle that represented what Jada and I hoped for our love.”

The adobe-style estate was designed by architect Stephen Samuelson and handcrafted by hundreds of master woodworkers, plasterers, metalsmiths, stonemasons and upholsterers.

“For Will and me this home was always a spiritual endeavor,” Jada told the magazine. “We’re very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, something that ties back to the land.”
