Wonder at This $250 Million Bel Air Mansion, America’s Most Expensive New Listing
Luxury real estate developer Bruce Makowsky had a dream. After spending an inordinate amount of time on tricked-out superyachts and private jets, Makowsky wondered why there weren’t homes that were just as over-the-top.
Look, we’ve introduced you to some of the world’s greatest finds over the last year or so—whether they be private islands or beachfront castles—and most of the time, you’ve gawked at the glorious guts that make up these mansions just like we have. But Makowsky’s baby is a whole different beast.
Located in the ultra-exclusive Bel Air enclave of Los Angeles, this estate located at 924 Bel Air looks like some architecture firm’s over-the-top design concept but is, in fact, the real McCoy, and is priced accordingly, at $250 million.
The 38,000-square-foot, four-level home provides 270-degree unobstructed views of the ocean and L.A. skyline. First things first: You’ll get a whopping 17,ooo square feet of entertainment decks, where you can host business events and private parties—or just enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a book. You can get to the home through the front door, parking your supercar at the top of the serpentine driveway that leads up to the main compound; or simply land your helicopter on the roof’s state-of-the-art helipad.
Once inside, you’ll find two master suites, 10 oversized VIP guest suites, 21 luxurious bathrooms, three gourmet kitchens, five bars, a massage studio and wellness spa, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Indoor amenities also include a 40-seat 4K Dolby Atmos theater; four-lane bowling alley and lounge; gallery, where you can marry your personal car collection to the one that comes with the house, worth more than $30 million; over 100 curated art installations; two fully stocked champagne and wine cellars; and our favorite, a giant “candy wall,” featuring Willy Wonka–esque glass cases full of all your favorite sweets that you can just pick at all day long (that’s, of course, after your personal trainer’s whipped you into shape).
The backyard features an epic 85-foot glass-tile infinity swimming pool, which includes a remote-control-operated “pop-up” movie screen, perfect for pool parties or just watching the latest Netflix series after your morning laps.
“But how do all the pillows stay fluffed, beds made, and helicopters polished?” Great question. The home comes with a seven-person full-time staff, which will wait on you hand and foot, all day, every day.
