With the auction upcoming, Adams told The Sun he will be sad to see his home sell, but it was too big for just two people.

"I'm gonna miss it. It's one-of-a-kind and in a category all to itself," he said. "I have faith in the house that I built."

Looking at Torretta, Somers told The Sun that he definitely sees a market for a home of this caliber. He said all market signs point to tremendous amounts of wealth "migrating to this area."
