    "Just based off of the response we've gotten from the market, I think it will be a successful sale," real estate agent Deborah Smith told the newspaper. 

    Smith said celebrities and foreign and local business owners have shown interest in the estate. 

    The Italian Renaissance Revival home was listed last year for $1.3 million before it was taken off the market. Attorney and owner Cynthia Reaves listed it in 2010 for about $1.4 million. 

    Smith has said the housing "market was a little depressed" then and "wasn't ready" for the home.
