‘For the rich­est of the rich’

Hills­boro Beach man­sion makes list of top 10 most ex­pen­sive listed U.S. homes

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Money - By Lisa J. Huri­ash South Florida Sun Sen­tinel

We knew it was one of the most ex­pen­sive houses in the coun­try: A Hills­boro Beach man­sion dubbed Playa Vista Isle was listed for $159 mil­lion, af­ter all.

But now the real es­tate web­site Prop­er­tyShark has made it of­fi­cial.

The man­sion with its 3,000-bot­tle wine cel­lar, six wa­ter­falls and a put­ting green with its own sand trap has been ranked No.

3 on a list of top 10 most ex­pen­sive homes for sale na­tion­wide.

The top 10 lo­ca­tions of sin­gle-fam­ily homes “for the rich­est of the rich” range be­tween $50 mil­lion and $500 mil­lion, ac­cord­ing to Prop­er­tyShark, which pro­vides data for 90 mil­lion prop­er­ties in ma­jor U.S. mar­kets.

Eliza Theiss, real es­tate writer and study author, said it’s pos­si­ble some of the homes will see a price cut. For oth­ers, “it’s a ques­tion of find­ing the right buyer.”

These homes are “for the 1 per­cent of the

1 per­cent. It’s be­yond what a house would mean for you and me,” she said. These are “iconic sta­tus prop­er­ties. It’s not just to live in, but to en­ter­tain in.”

The Hills­boro Beach prop­erty, at 935 and

939 Hills­boro Mile, in­cludes the house and an ad­ja­cent 2-acre piece of land along State Road A1A. It has 30,000 square feet of liv­ing space, with 11 bed­rooms; 22 bath­rooms; a

3D-IMAX, in-home theater with 18 re­clin­ers; 20-car garage with se­cure tun­nel ac­cess; wine cel­lar with in­di­vid­u­ally con­trolled tem­per­a­ture and hu­mid­ity with an ad­ja­cent tast­ing room; a pool with a slide; and a Jacuzzi with ocean views.

The 58,000-square-foot es­tate will be up for sale at a live auc­tion on Nov. 15 through the real es­tate auc­tion com­pany, Concierge Auc­tions. One Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Realty has the list­ing along with the auc­tion house.

The other homes on the top 10 list of­fer ev­ery­thing from a work­ing farm com­plete with co­conut and citrus trees (that would be No. 7 in Hawaii, with an ask­ing price of

$70 mil­lion), to 7,000 acres shared with bears, bi­son and moun­tain lions and fea­tur-
