A huge party palace in Laguna Beach, California, is up for grabs – if you have $20 million to spare.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the seller is entrepreneur Clay Berryhill, who made millions when he sold his company, Simple Mobile, to Carlos Slim’s Mexican telecom conglomerate, América Móvil, in 2012. Berryhill gave the house its “Clayboy Mansion” moniker after he christened it with a giant housewarming party a couple of years ago. Brian G. Johnson of Teles Properties has the listing.

“This house has its own personality, and it’s a party animal,” Berryhill’s wife, Delphine, told The Wall Street Journal.
