The country’s most expensive home ever has just been listed with an exorbitant price tag of $250 million, according to a press release.
Nicknamed the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” the 55,000-square-foot, brand-new construction, located at 924 Bel Air Road in Bel Air, California, comes with a $30 million car collection, a full-time seven-person staff, and much more.
The “Spelling Mansion,” listed with a price tag of $200 million, is the second most expensive listing in L.A.
“This new construction home, and others currently under construction by my team at BAM Luxury Development, represent a tremendous opportunity to curate luxury real estate that exceeds the demands of the super-wealthy, who desire the best of everything that life has to offer,” says real estate mogul, Bruce Makowsky.
The high-end developer has been dubbed the “Spec King” for going above and beyond with his exceptionally-designed properties, including his Beverly Hills home that sold in early 2015 for a record-breaking $70 million.
As intended by Makowsky, this mega-mansion, with 35,000 square feet of interior space, an additional 17,000 square feet of entertainment decks, and two 5,0000-foot driveways, was designed as a playground for the elite.
The four-story masterpiece, equipped with the most advanced home technology system in the country, is designed for seamless indoor-outdoor living with 270-degree views of L.A., from the mountains to the Pacific Ocean.
Inside, two extravagant master suites, 10 enormous guest suites, 21 lavish bathrooms, three state-of-the-art kitchens, a penthouse office space, and five bars are the foundation for this ornate home.
Its leisurely conveniences include a massage studio and wellness spa, a fully-equipped fitness center, an 85-foot glass tile infinity edge pool, a 40-seat $4,000 Dolby Atmos Theater, a four-lane bowling alley, an outdoor hydraulic pop-up theater, an Airwolf Bell 222 Helicopter sculpture and over 100 curated art installations throughout, two fully-stocked wine cellars, and a colorful assorted wall of candy.
“Until now, there hasn’t been a home that can go toe-to-toe with the mega yachts and super jets that the ultra-affluent already own,” Makowsky says.
Completed by a team of 250 people in four years, the new construction at 924 Bel Air Road is Makowsky’s ninth spec home built within Los Angeles’ affluent neighborhood triangle of Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills, and Bel Air. The listing is held by Branden Williams and Rayni Williams, as well as Ben Bacal.
