Billionaires in the market for a new LA pad may be interested to know that the recently-completed 924 Bel Air Road is up for sale for a cool US$250 million. Designed to serve as the ultimate in luxury digs for the one percent, the "mega-mansion" includes a theater, bowling lane, art collection, and a private car showroom stocked with high end cars and motorbikes.

As its name suggests, the property is located in the ultra-exclusive Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles and comprises a total floorspace of 38,000 sq ft (3,530 sq m), spread over four levels. This is split between a couple of master suites, 10 VIP guest suites, 21 bathrooms, and three gourmet kitchens. The home also features deck areas and boasts 270-degree unobstructed views of the LA area.

You get quite a lot of goodies for a quarter of a billion dollars, including a massage studio and wellness spa, a fitness center, and a 85 ft (26 m)-long glass tiled swimming pool. On the entertainment side, there are five bars, a 40-seat 4K Dolby Atmos Theater, a four-lane bowling alley and lounge, an outdoor hydraulic pop-up theater, and multiple foosball tables.

The property also includes a private car showroom stocked with high-end cars and motorbikes that are valued at over $30 million. A huge candy wall is installed, plus a couple of well-stocked champagne and wine cellars. The house has a high-end home tech system and you'll need a full-time staff of seven to run the place.

Inside, the decor includes hand-cut stone and marble, and a collection of 100 art installations. These include Gale Hart-designed chrome sculptures, Lamborghini wall clocks, vintage gas cans and fire extinguishers, a pair of Rock Royalty Custom guitars, and a deactivated Bell 22A helicopter used in the TV series Airwolf.

924 Bel Air Road is being promoted as the USA's most expensive house ever listed for sale – a claim that appears to check out – and is developed by luxury developer Bruce Makowsky. It took a crew of 250 people a total of four years to build.

To breathe in smog? Why wouldn't you live by the ocean if you can afford that?

The wine collection I feel is too limited.

Anyone who would even consider buying such a home is mentally and spiritually defective. Nobody needs such a luxurious environment, and to spend a quarter of a BILLION dollars on one while there are people who don't have two nickels to rub together or even a roof over their heads is incredibly callous.

Wait - the Bell is deactivated? I'm out.

I'll take it. If you'll give it to me smile.

Only 4K? For a quarter-billion, you'd think they could at least spring for 8K.

Do I need a pre-approval certificate to spend a week there with my family looking at it? We may even need like 2-3 weeks to really think it over.

Wow, isn't it cool that wealth can now be conspicuous outside of royalty? Thats what 241 years of progress can get you! Congratulations America-great strides in income equality have been, er, Trumped...

I was thinking - would you need to put down the whole amount to buy this house? Like, would you need a spare $250 million? Or would you walk into a bank with a 10% deposit and get a mortgage like everyone else?
EH
It's only $45 per square inch! The guy who built this has no taste, the house is a ripoff at a tenth the price.
