SAVANNAH, Georgia — Paula Deen has put her Savannah mansion on the market with an asking price of $12.5 million.

The celebrity cook's 5.5-acre estate overlooking the Wilmington River includes a main house of 14,500 square feet and two guest cottages. The house has indoor and outdoor kitchens and a poolside movie theater. There is also a barn on the property that functions as an eight-car garage and a chicken coop.

Spokesman Jaret Keller said Tuesday that new ventures have kept Deen so busy that she wants "an easier and simpler life" at home on the Georgia coast. After parting ways with the Food Network in 2013, Deen launched her own online subscription network last year. She just opened a restaurant that seats nearly 300 diners in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
