One of the biggest homes in U.S. history is rising in Bel Air, and the developer Nile Niami hopes to sell it for a record $500 million. Paul McClean, the Orange home designer is the men behind this most expensive home on the planet.
Nicknamed “The One,” the eye-popping estate will exceed 100,000 square feet, including a 5,000-square-foot master bedroom, a 30-car garage and a “Monaco-style casino,” Niami said.
“The house will have almost every amenity available in the world,” he said. “The asking price will be $500 million.”
The list of the amenities that the property will feature when it is completed in 2017 is pretty long, but to name just a few: Between the 74,000-square-foot main home, 4,000-square-foot guesthouse (which will tout its own pool and spa), and separate staff quarters, the property will consist of well over 20 bedrooms, providing ample room for residents and their guests (and guests of guests), who’ll be able to park their wheels in the 30-car show garage. Its master suite will be twice as big as the average U.S. home.
Fun-infused features include a bowling alley, billiards area, and video-game room – not to mention a tennis court, golf simulator, ballroom, nightclub, and “Monaco-style” casino. A full professional wellness center—complete with a large heated spa and treatment area – will also be thrown into the mix, along with a host of relaxation and exercise rooms.
Niami insists the property will be worth every penny. He adds that the $5,000 per square foot price is comparatively less than half of what billionaires are willing to pay for penthouses in Manhattan.
