LA mansion now the most expensive home on the U.S. market

A Los Angeles mansion has now been deemed the most expensive home on the market in the United States, according to many reports, featuring a listing price of $250 million.

The newly listed mega-mansion in Bel-Air offers 38,000 square feet of interiors and is four levels. The interior has 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, three kitchens, bowling alley, movie theater, candy room and an infinity pool complete with swim-up bar, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times.

The four lane bowling alley is stocked with shoes in every size and the candy room features towering cylinders of sweets. The property also features two wine cellars completely stocked with hundreds of bottles of wine and Champagne.

The main dining area offers views of the city and is adorned with a $2 million, 4-ton floating stainless-steel staircase.

Owner-developer Bruce Makowsky said, “You don’t even need a toothbrush.”

The home is located at 924 Bel Air Road and comes completely furnished. This luxury property has more than 100 art installations spaced throughout the estate, Makowsky said on a website devoted to the mega-mansion.

The $250 million price tag will also get you a few more novelties than just the house, though. The property also includes a decommissioned helicopter from the 1980s-television show “Airwolf” parked on the roof. Another addition to the price tag is a $30-million car collection, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Some of the cars included in the car collection are a custom Rolls-Royce, a Bugatti and a vintage Allard.

In addition to the helicopter and car collection, a Hobie Cat sailboat sits on a deck ready for a voyage. The house also has an elevator inside.

The perks just keep coming though – Makowsky will pay for two years for seven staff members to work at the mega-mansion full time, according to the Times.

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

If the property does sell for its $250 million asking price, it will become the most expensive home ever sold in L.A. County.

Makowsky said he decided the home “on spec,” without a buyer in mind. He is sure the home will attract another billionaire, though.

Makowsky lives in a 27,000 square-foot Beverly Hills mansion. “I live the life,” he said simply.
