At $250M, Los Angeles home most expensive listed in US
LOS ANGELES (AP) — At $250 million, a new mega mansion in the exclusive Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles is the most expensive home listed in the United States.
The passion project of developer and handbag tycoon Bruce Makowsky, the four-level, 38,000-square-foot mansion built on spec includes 12 bedroom suites, 21 bathrooms, five bars, three gourmet kitchens, a spa and an 85-foot infinity swimming pool with stunning views of Los Angeles. There’s also a 40-seat movie theater, a bowling alley, and a fleet of exotic and vintage cars worth $30 million.
According to Makowksy, only 3,000 people in the world could afford to buy it.
The Associated Press recently interviewed Makowksy inside the mansion. Here’s what he had to say about why he built it and who would spend $250 million on a house.
