|A gallery hall in a $125 million dollar home in Santa Barbara, CA – read post to see more! (above)|
After receiving an email from a real estate brokerage the other day about super high end homes, I went house hunting. This time my property search was for home in the $100 million dollars and over range. Yes. Private homes do exist that are well over $100 million dollars! I am in shock and disbelief…very intrigued, partially confused and most certainly priced out of this marketplace.
Well a house hunting I went none-the-less…via the internet. Price was no object when I went on this hunt – clearly.
Here’s a look at 4 homes that are currently on the real estate market in the United States…all priced at $100 million dollars or more! Pick your favorite…
Just a stone’s throw from my house in the Hollywood Hills but clearly worlds away in price, this Beverly Hills, California home features 12 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms and 53,000 square feet.
I think this is currently the most expensive home on market in the entire United States. This is just one private home that costs $195 million dollars…I just got dizzy!
Listed by agent Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Previews, Built by developer Mohamed Hadid, with architecture by Bob Ray Offenhauser and design by Alberto Pinto, this property sits in the heart of one of the most well known city’s of the world on a whopping 25 acre plot of land.
The home is Mediterranean villa named Palazzo di Amore. The home boasts luxurious living quarters, pools, gardens and more. There is 3,000 bottle wine cellar and its own vineyard that produces up to 500 cases of wine a year.
$139 million dollars. Wow.
Listed by agent William Pierce of Coldwell Banker, this Florida mansion has 11 bedrooms, 17 baths in over 60,000 square feet. The home is named Le Palais Royal and the website deems it a “Beaux Arts masterpiece”. The main staircase alone cost $2 million dollars to build. There are 22K gold leaf finishes in the house, a putting green, a 4500 square foot infinity pool and a 30 car garage.
This feels more like a small town than a home…
Located at the Ritz Carlton, this two story 12 bedroom, 15 bath apartment is not your normal city pied-a-terre. What do you call an apartment that is a mansion? Making up a word – an amansement?
Anyhoo….listed by NestSeekers agents Ryan Serhant (the guy from Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing t.v. show) and Kaptan Unugur, this “amansement” is around 15,500 square feet with another 2200 square feet of outdoor space. What? This stunning penthouse boasts amazing views of the city, lots of entertaining spaces and three kitchens…
12 bedrooms, 10 baths in 29,500 square feet, this estate sits on 237 acres in the Santa Barbara area (Montecito to be exact). Rancho San Carlos listed by agents Suzanne Perkins and Harry Kolb at Sotheby’s is on the market for the first time in 100 years as the land was owned by one family for that period. It boasts horse stables and a full equestrian facility, tennis courts, ocean views, approximately 100 acres of cultivated orchards including lemon, orange, lime and avocado trees. The home was designed in 1929 by famed architect Reginald Johnson for a prominent developer and rancher and his wife. The current owners are the descendants of the original owner and according to articles are selling because the family is so spread out there is no one to take care of the grand estate.
Oh did I mention the 10 guest cottages on the property too?
This is what $125 million dollars looks like…
My personal favorites are the NYC apartment and the home in Santa Barbara. Love the fact that the Santa Barbara home has its own orchards. Would love that. If in some alternate universe you had this kind money to spend…which of these would you select?
