Most expensive home in the US revealed

$250m and 20,000 square foot home in California has more than a few add-ons


Developers are starting to dream big again in California — at least one is with the launch of what is being billed as the most expensive home — at $250 million (Dh918 million) — in the US.

Luxury developer Bruce Makowsky unveiled the project on Wednesday in the form of a 38,000 square foot constructi­on located at 924 Bel Air Road in Los Angeles. It claims to be the “most expensive home ever listed for sale in the US”.

And apart from the 38,000 square feet sprawl within, there will be an additional 17,000 square feet of entertainm­ent decks, an 85-foot glass tile Infinity pool, a 40-seat 4K Dolby Atmos Theatre and fourlane bowling alley/lounge. The add-ons don’t end there — an auto gallery with cars valued at more than $30 million comes with it and so do more than 100 curated art installati­ons. For a bit of rest and quiet, there are two master suites and 10 VIP guest suites. (It took four years to build.)

“Until now, the ultra-luxury market was void of homes that even came close to matching the level of mega-yachts and private jets that billionair­es spend millions of dollars on every year,” said Makowsky.

“There are hundreds of new billionair­es created each year and they are increasing­ly setting their sights on this coveted enclave of California for everything the state has to offer.

“This home was curated for the ultimate billionair­e who wants the best of everything that exists in life.”

The developer’s got form with super-prime property — in 2015, he booked the sale of a $70 million spec home in Beverly Hills.

According to a company spokespers­on, “The 924 Bel Air Road is the ninth spec home built by developer Bruce Makowsky within the platinum triangle of Los Angeles, the exclusive enclave encompassi­ng Beverly Hills, Holmby Hills and Bel Air.

“Southern California continues to be a highly desirable market for internatio­nal buyers for its climate, endless entertainm­ent and unparallel­ed lifestyle.

“Four home sales within a three-mile radius of 924 Bel Air Road had sale prices reaching $100 million over the past three months ... point to a growing demand in the market for this calibre of home. California has proved stronger than ever and we don’t see this category of the market slowing down anytime soon.”
