‘For the richest of the rich’
Hillsboro Beach mansion makes list of top 10 most expensive listed U.S. homes
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.

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