America’s most expensive house has just hit the market for $250 million. The house is in the Bel Air neighbourhood in Los Angeles and comes with a helicopter, its own staff that’s been paid for two years, and a $30 million car collection.
The most expensive home that’s ever been listed in the United States has just gone up for sale for a whopping $250 million. This beats the record of a $195 million home in Manalapan, Florida.
The owner, developer and handbag tycoon, Bruce Makowsky, drew inspiration from his own glamorous lifestyle to develop this $250 million mega-mansion.
It is approximately 38,000 square feet, and comes with custom-made luxury furniture. It has 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, three kitchens, a bowling alley, a movie theater, an 85-foot infinity pool with its own private bar, and a “candy room” filled with $200,000 worth of candy. It also has 130 artworks.
It also comes with its own $30 million car collection, ranging from 1930s cars to 21st century sports cars. The house also comes with its own helicopter, and seven full-time employees whose salaries would be paid for 2 years upon the sale of the mansion.
Coming up with Idea & Designing the House
According to Makowsky, six people are already interested in the mansion. He has reportedly sold nine billionaire houses in the past six years, and thought up this mega-mansion idea by watching rich travelers invest in yachts.
“Today, people are spending $300million on a boat, and they use it about eight weeks a year,” Makowsky said. “Then they are living in a $30million to $40million home.” He said it took him four years and over 250 people to design and finish the $250million place.
He reportedly designed it to the very last detail, including the Champagne bottles in the two wine cellars.
“I wanted to redefine what super-high-end luxury homes are all about,’ Makowsky told CNBC. ‘I wanted to break all the molds. The level of quality and attention to detail in this house is unsurpassed. And I wanted to create the greatest feeling that you can have being at home.”
“People spend over half their lives in their home,’ he said. ‘So when you’re home, it should be the ultimate oasis. You should have every single entertainment feature you could have in one home.”
