924 Bel Air Road is a newly built modern palace overlooking Los Angeles and has just set the record for the most expensive home ever listed in the United States. The price tag is set at $250 million.
“Every inch of the property in the home had to be innovative, flawless, and meticulously curated,” says real estate developer Bruce Makowsky.
Bruce extends an invitation to experience “Billionaire”. The Bel-Air mansion includes staff, a helicopter, 40-seat movie theater, infinity pool with a swim-up bar, and 270-degree hilltop views from downtown to the ocean.
Bruce wanted to create a “curated lifestyle” and experience that would appeal to a new class of global billionaire.
It took more than 300 people over four years to build. The Bel-Air property is a marvel of technology, design, craftsmanship, exotic materials and natural views. Makowsky used no outside inventors and spared no expense. The house was built “on spec”, which means the developer makes all the decisions and designs a home without a buyer lined up.
There are two wine cellars stocked with hundreds of bottles of Champagne and wine. There is also glass ping-pong, custom-built billiards tables, a bowling alley, and 130 artworks collected from around the world including a $30-million fleet of exotic cards and motorcycles.
The home “comes with everything” says Makowsky. “You don’t even need a toothbrush”.
The house succeeds in transcending the bounds of the typical home and dually functions as a multi-sensory, all-powerful experience for all who enter it.
