Let’s escape our modest hopes and dreams for our homes for a moment. Let’s leave our humdrum worlds to consider how the richest .0001% live. Join me on an insane tour of the current most expensive listing in the world.
924 Bel Air Road, out in L.A., of course, is listed for $250 million. A quarter of a billion dollars, people! Included in this insane price tag are several extras that may not be included in the average mid-century ranch. For example, a “$30-million fleet of exotic cars and motorcycles parked in the foyer, including a custom Rolls-Royce, a Bugatti and a vintage Allard,” according to the LA Times. Or how about a fully-stocked wine cellar, 130 original works of art hung throughout, a helicopter, and a staff of seven people?
Besides all the extras, the home itself is nothing to sneeze at. It features two master suites, 10 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, a spa and a fitness center. With a movie theater that seats 40, and another big screen at the resort like pool, there is plenty of entertainment available. If you get bored of all that, there is an entire room devoted to candy and foosball. CANDY AND FOOSBALL. What a world.
Its monstrous 38,000 square feet is about 20 times the size of the average home in the US. However, its hefty price is more than 1,300 times the national average home price in America.
