NATION’S MOST EXPENSIVE HOUSE EVER

924 Bel Air, Bel Air Road, California 90077

Real estate developer Bruce Makowsky has unveiled a mansion that is a flamboyant display of luxe living.

He describes it as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’. Located in the ultra-exclusive neighborhood of Bel Air, within Beverly Hills, in Los Angeles, 924 Bel Air Road has recently been completed and takes the title of the most expensive house in the United States. At a price $250 million, far from the record of $147 million of an East Hampton estate sold back in 2014.

The luxurious mansion comes with 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, a massage studio, an 85-feet Italian glass infinity pool, a Louis Vuitton-designed bowling lane, an outdoor theater, an indoor 007-style cinema, 3 gourmet kitchens, Hermès plate settings and prop helicopter from the TV show Airwolf.

With a 38,000 sq. ft. of floor space spread over four levels -surrounded by a moat-like canal-, the property boasts 270 degrees of panoramic views of the LA area. The house also has a Hobie Cat sailboat, glass ping pong and billiard tables, a crocodile-embossed elevator, 56 TV screens, two wine cellars and Willy Wonka-style cylinders filled with candy.

This dream estate, a true accomplishment in achitecture and design, even includes a private car showroom, filled with exotic cars and motorcycles with a value of over $30 million.
The decoration includes 100 art installations, hand-cut stone and marble, sculptures designed by Gale Hart, Lamborghini wall clocks, vintage fire extinguishers and gas cans and Rock Royalty Custom guitars.

Inspired by multimillion dollar yachts, Bruce Makowsky, the developer, built this house for the “ultimate billionaire who wants the best of everything that exists in life”. He wanted to build the most spectacular house in the country, and sure enough, he did.

Makowsky purchased the site in 2013 for a mere $11 million, according to property records. Sources familiar with the development told us that he spent north of $50 million to transform it. If it sells for its record asking price, he would net a not-too-shabby $189 million return on his investment.

While not the largest new home listed, the Bel Air property is a marvel of technology, design, craftsmanship, exotic materials and natural views.

The mansion went on sale in January and with a crew of 250 workers, took four years to be built. Now it comes with a staff of seven, including a yoga instructor and a masseuse, paid by the developer for the next two years.
