America’s Most Expensive Home is on the Market: Got $500 Million?

December 3, 2018

I mean, how have you lived without seven pools, 20 bedrooms and your own VIP lounge for this long?

A massive mansion, known simply as “The One” and located in a very exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood, has just listed with real estate firm Hilton & Hyland for a jaw-dropping $500 million, according to the New York Times.

This is insane on all accounts, especially knowing that the most expensive property ever sold in the U.S. was a mansion in the Hamptons that sold for $137 million. The most expensive property ever sold in the WORLD, went for $300 million – a French chateau in 2015. Yes, this place is unreal!

After five years under construction, the 100,000-square-foot estate will feature 20 bedrooms (including a 5,500-square-foot master suite), five elevators and seven pools, all perched on a hilltop with expansive views across the city.

The house is one of the largest private homes ever built in the U.S. (and the world, for that matter)!

It has seemingly endless over-the-top features: a private nightclub with a pool and VIP room, an in-house, full-scale beauty salon, and a lounge which has jellyfish aquariums for its walls, to name a few.

The home’s architect, Paul McClean, also designed Jay-Z and Beyonce’s new L.A. mansion, which they purchased for $88 million in August after years of house-hunting.

When the Times asked developer Nile Niami why anyone would shell out $500 million for this property, his answer was very clear: “Because it’s cool.”

The Times points out that the house will likely sell for much less than its attention-grabbing asking price, citing that the Playboy mansion sold in 2016 for $100 million, after being listed for $200 million.

The former “most expensive house in America”? Still on the market…

We’re here to show you properties that are not only cool, but fit within your budget!
