Tons of hype yesterday about the Most Expensive House in America – a cool $250 million sheckels. Every news outlet I tripped across had at least one story or tweet, even the WSJ. Oh my. But hey, that says the PR folks behind the house sale are doing their job, so I guess kudos?
Sensory warning, the link to the house starts with an alarmingly loud and obnoxious Lucas-like intro video… click your mute button before playing. Not kidding.
924 Bel Air Road, Los Angeles (oh, excuuuuse me, that’s Bel Air, California)
Just like my house……. The house succeeds in transcending the bounds of the typical home, and dually functioning as a multi-sensory, all-powerful experience for all who enter it.
I will give the house A+++ for the pool and views…this is awesome, but really.. the TV? Kind of in the way and wouldn’t the sun make it impossible to see anything on the screen? Asking for a friend.
As you might imagine, the house has every conceivable amenity that a multi-billionaire would deem necessary…
Who doesn’t need a bowling alley?
Of course, a movie theater. Gotta have Meryl Streep and Leo over to chat their latest dud films.
The gym, duh, gotta stay fit and trim for those red carpet photos.
The place DOES look cool at night – gotta give it that much.
I know I’d wanted to keep my helicopter on the roof but silly Bedford has regulations about such things. I kinda imagine Bel Air does too so this isn’t actually gonna ever happen. Agree?
The room that confused me the most is one the listing calls The Lounge. Just what lounging happens here? Looks like the waiting room for a car dealership to me …
…and maybe that’s exactly what it is because the house comes complete with a car collection
I don’t see this listing disappearing off the books any time soon. Who is the target buyer? A Russian? Putin himself. Maybe Al Gore, giving up on his climate change hoax? Barry and Michelle?
I’m out. Way too ostentatious for me. But I’d like to take a dip in the pool. Who’s in with me?
