America’s Most Expensive Home Hits The Market For $250M, Includes 12 Cars, 10 Motorcycles, and an Airwolf Helicopter
924 Bel Air Road, Bel Air, California, United States
At $250-million this palatial 38,000 square foot modern spec home is the most expensive private residence currently listed in the United States, and when you hear what’s inside you might justify paying that price. It’s so expensive that developer Bruce Makowsky told The Hollywood Reporter that there are only about 3,000 potential buyers worldwide, but he seems optimistic that it will sell. Makowsky made headlines in 2015 when he sold a 23,000 square foot spec mansion in Beverly Hills to Minecraft creator Markus Persson for $70-million. Whoever ends up buying 924 Bel Air Road will definitely have bragging rights for life. The 38,000 square foot residence has more to offer than any other property ever to come on the market. On top of the 38,000 square feet of indoor space, there’s an additional 17,000 square feet of outdoor space including patios, terraces, and roof decks, there are 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, 6 bars, and even 2 commercial elevators. The theatre rivals most commercial theatres, Architectural Digest notes that it includes 40 reclining seats with Hermès pillows & throws, 57 speakers, 16 subwoofers, and comes preloaded with 7,000 movies into the 4K-gold projector. If that isn’t enough the home also includes a 7-person full time staff, four-lane bowling alley, over 100 curated art installations, a $200,000 candy wall, a champagne pinball machine, and a commercial-grade outdoor movie screen that rises beyond the 85-foot Italian glass infinity pool. In that $250-million price tag you’re also getting over $30-million worth of collector cars including brands such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bentley, and even a helicopter from the 1980’s TV show Airwolf. This place is so wild and jam-packed with features that it would be hard to ever imagine needing to leave. Makowsky told The Hollywood Reporter, “I don’t care if you have a $100 billion, if you walk into this house it is going to blow your mind.” If you can’t quite afford the $250-million ask price don’t worry, there are several other world-class estates currently up for grabs in California. For $50-million less you can buy the iconic 56,000 square foot Spelling Manor in Holmby Hills on a nearly 5-acre manicured estate, it includes 14 bedrooms, 27 bathrooms, and is said to offers an additional 17,000 square feet of attic space. You could also buy Bel Air’s 50,000 square foot Le Belvédère on a 2.2-acre lot with 10 bedrooms & 14 bathrooms. It will be interesting to see how long this one-of-a-kind property sits on the market before somebody makes a record breaking offer. It’s listed at $250,000,000 with Hilton & Hyland.
