4. Palazzo di Amore
Where: Beverly Hills, Los Angeles
The Mediterranean-style Palazzo di Amore villa perched on a private hill is sure to leave one gaping with awe first with the view and second with the amenities it houses. The gated, 25-acre estate is owned by real estate entrepreneur Jeff Greene who has a penchant for milking money out of estates and then doling out some philosophies about how Americans need to live more simply. Yes, we appreciate that, but what we appreciate more, now, is that this mansion has two wine cellars, a Turkish bath, a ballroom with a revolving dance floor, and the ability to accommodate 150 cars at a time!
3. Los Angeles Spec House
Where: Los Angeles
The Los Angeles Spec House enlivens the true Los Angeles spirit with its ultra-high end exteriors and interiors. The 38,000 square-feet mansion houses 10 bedrooms, a 10-car garage, an indoor lap pool, two infinity pools and an ability to house 50 cars, all in approximately two acres of space. Life couldn’t get any better for folks who’d want to grab this not-so-humble abode.
2. Le Palais Royal
Where: Hillsboro Beach, Florida
Modeled after the famed Palace of Versailles in France, the Le Palais Royal mansion includes six waterfalls – one of them 25-feet tall and a marble staircase that cost the owners a whopping two million to build. The 60,500 square feet estate includes 11 bedrooms, 17 bathroom- main house, 465-feet of ocean front, 492-foot dock that can easily fit 185-foot yacht in its womb. As for the other swish amenities, there is the underground garage with parking for more than 30 cars, the first ever IMAX Theater contracted for private use. (It must feel good to make history in modern-day times).
1. Manalapan Megamansion
Where: Hillsboro, Florida
We’ve waited long enough to hear about the most expensive house on sale in America and its none other than the gorgeous Manalapan Megamansion. The mansion built in the 1940s is listed publicly for the first time. The 33-bedroom compound that was once home to the twentieth century style icon Gloria Guinness, stretches across 63,000 square feet and rakes in an astonishing 47 bathrooms (13 half baths). Yes, we were perturbed by that number too! Other rocking amenities include, a world-class botanic garden, with over 1,500 species of tropical trees and plants, a PGA-standard golf practice area, Sports complex featuring a regulation tennis court, half basketball court, playground, and miniature golf course, and a Robinson Crusoe-style tree house. Massive magnificent mayhem could be a term that encapsulates this mansion!
