America’s most expensive home hits market for $340 million

The most expensive house in the United States history was put up for sale in the prestigious area of Los Angeles (California) Bel Air. For a mansion called The One asking 340 million US dollars, Report states, citing TASS.

The One holds another record for its sheer size. The quarter-mile-long Bel Air mansion is the largest globally, comprising 21 bedrooms, 42 bathrooms, a 30-vehicle showroom, and five swimming pools. Extravagant extras include a four-lane bowling alley, 30-seat movie theater, hair and beauty salon, a 6,000-square-foot principal suite with dual dressing rooms, and a 10,000-square-foot sky deck complete with a putting green.

Envisioned by Irish-born architect Paul McClean, The One is characterized by clean lines, water features, neutral colors, and unobstructed views. McClean has collaborated with Miami on numerous projects over the last 12 years, from renovations in the Hollywood Hills to new-builds in the Bird Streets.

Interior designer Kathryn Rotondi of KFR Design created the lavish yet surprisingly liveable interiors, playing up the home's enormous scale with oversized art pieces and custom furnishings by Vesta.

Niami, a former film producer turned developer, purchased the eight-acre property for $28 million in late 2012, and construction took eight years and 600 laborers to complete.

Branden and Rayni Williams of Williams & Williams Estates Group and Aaron Kirman of Compass will share The One's listing. If it fetches $340 million, the sale will oust Jeff Bezos' recent purchase of the $165 million Warner Estate in Beverly Hills, currently the priciest single-family transaction in California history. It will also shatter the record for the country's highest-priced home ever sold, held by hedge fund billionaire Ken Griffin, who snapped up a $238 million NYC penthouse in 2019.
