A new home built on speculation in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles is asking an earth-shattering $250 million.

And it’s a doozy. Full of splashy art and high-end furniture, the home is truly unlike any other property on the market. It was built by the luxury developer Bruce Makowsky, whom the release refers to as the “spec king.” He was also the mastermind behind the $70 million Beverly Hills house sold to Minecraft founder Markus “Notch” Persson in 2014.

Here are some of the most outrageous facts about the home that, according to a press release from the developer, is the most expensive to ever be listed in the US.


1. At $250 million, the home is the most expensive ever offered for sale in the US, according to a press release announcing its listing.

2. It took four years and 250 people to build.

3. It covers 38,000 square feet — that’s over 14 times larger than the average new home constructed in the US in 2015.

4. In addition to two master suites, there are 10 VIP suites. That’s a total of 12 bedrooms and 21 bathrooms.

5. Outdoors, there is 17,000 square feet of room to explore, including the 70-foot glass infinity pool.

6. The 40-seat theater rivals the size of multiplexes. It features a 4K projector screen and Dolby Atmos sound system.

7. Other entertainment options include a four-lane bowling alley, a candy wall overlooking a game room, and a gigantic wine storage facility.

8. The view from the home spans 270 degrees looking out over the mountains, over the city, and even out to the sea.

9. A collection of valuable cars worth more than $30 million are stashed in the home’s basement.

10. There are over 100 art installations throughout the home.

11. A Leica camera sculpture valued at approximately $1 million sits in the dining room.

12. A helicopter that is unable to fly and that was an original model from the 1987 TV show “Airwolf” sits on the roof. It’s been refurbished with a luxury interior.

13. An original “Hobie Cat” catamaran sits by the pool, though the home is not located near water.

14. A champagne pinball machine rounds out the interactive art installations.

15. Hermés products were used throughout the home, including the “Safari Art” collection. The blanket is 100% cashmere.
