We get an inside look at America’s Most Expensive Home. The BelAir GiGa Mansion is back on the market after the buyer pulled out of his contract. Last year it was America’s most expensive home for $250 million. It is down to the third most expensive home now for $188 million.
“This home was curated for the ultimate billionaire who wants the best of everything that exists in life.” said developer Bruce Makowsky when he put the turnkey Bel Air GiGa mansion on the market for the first time in early 2017.
This mansion has everything a billionaire could want. In fact, it was designed to be exactly that.
“It was lauded to be the 21st century’s answer to a new housing niche in the luxury market where the new owner would only have to bring his toothbrush and a bathing suit – or not – to begin living the dream.”
It looks like a little city unto its own.
America’s Most Expensive Home
Night view of the entrance.
I imagine the glass dining room table reflects the glimmer from the double glass chandeliers. I spy a giant camera art object under the palatial winding staircase.
This is a BelAir GiGa mansion lounge room with seating galore.
A giant TV in the lounge to entertain all the guests because the mansion has:
Two master suites, ten large VIP guest suites, 21 luxury baths, three gourmet kitchens, five bars, a massage studio, wellness spa and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
This is just one of the incredible views.
The Penthouse Office and Helicopter Pad
As expected, there is a movie theater, but I never saw one with so many seats.
If you have to leave in the Helicopter, okay, but there is so much to do here including this custom bowling alley.
Next to the bowling alley is a fun game room with an entire wall of candy so incredible it is hard to believe it exists.
I won’t say this is an exercise room, it’s a gym.
America’s most expensive home has two fully stocked champagne and wine cellars. I am overwhelmed by how much is in stock.
A luxurious Spa/Wellness Center with amazing views to relax in after all the candy and champagne.
The master deck
“Makowsky studied land from the ground and air until he found the perfect spot in the hills of Bel Air with a 270-degree view reaching from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Pacific Ocean beaches of Malibu. From all levels of the house and from the glass-tiled pool and wide terraces, the view is spellbinding both day and night.”
A jaw-dropping Glass-Tiled Pool with a Theatre sized screen rises up from the water’s edge. I’ll be chillin right here if you’re looking for me.
Just Wow! I love a night view and this one is breathtaking. Check out the cars in the garage that is “a $30 million collection of exotic cars and motorcycles” that comes with the purchase of the home.
If you’re a billionaire and buy America’s most expensive home, your neighbors are the likes of Rod Stewart and Steve Martin.
The bait that comes with the house is spellbinding: Furnishings, walls, and niches filled with curated art, the exotic car and motorcycle collection, and the two fully stocked champagne and wine cellars. Plus, the house has the most advanced home tech system in the world, two alligator-upholstered elevators, the sweet massive candy wall, and the helicopter. Then, for two years the developer supplies a personal chef, a masseuse and five full-time employees who live on site in a separate staff wing and whose salaries have been paid. Wow!
