The One For You?
If you haven’t seen the thread on social media, go now and look for ‘The One Bel Air’. You will find photos and info on the most expensive home for sale in California-a 105,000 sq. ft. property that someone will be able to call home in the future. This is all new construction that’s been going on for about eight years and has been kept secret until now. Trust me, it’s been the talk of the town of high end REALTORS, investors, and developers in the L.A. area.
Picture this estate floating above the city of Los Angeles atop of its own hill, surrounded on three sides by a moat and 400-foot long jogging tract. Going through the main entry inside you pass an area filled with water, a bridge and a large sculpture mounted on the floor that rotates under a custom glass Murano chandelier. It would be hard to give you a tour because where would you look? There’s 42 bathrooms, 21 bedrooms and a master suite that’s 5,500 sq. ft. The amenities include a 30-seat movie theater, a four-lane bowling alley, 30-car garage with two display turntables and five swimming pools. Of course, there’s a full service spa with a hair and beauty salon that surely the bitchy Housewives of Salt Lake City would fight over to utilize before they attended a gala in the intentional philanthropy wing that can hold 200 guests.
It took around 600 workers to build this mansion of all mansions, and it will not be topped in size by any other future project in Los Angeles thanks to newly approved city ordinances for permits for the size of homes. The asking price is $340 million and that includes the art and designer furniture in the home.
Back in Utah, the highest price for home sold in 2020 was at the Colony at White Pine in Park City for $19,250,000. The two story new construction only has 13,510 sq. ft., 6 bedrooms, 9 baths and a 5 car garage. The mountain contemporary style design of this home fit in well for the area and is located on a cul-de-sac. The views from the 16 foot walls of glass looked out across a small lake and the wooded property sits on over 3 acres of prime Utah forest. The architects made sure that every room looked out onto the mountain range from every room of the house. California may have ocean views, but this Utah home offers ski-in/ski-out access to the Canyons ski area. Amenities inside the home included a ‘Bento Room’ that served as a take on a traditional bunkroom with six bento-style beds and a large communal-style bath. The upper level of the home has a massive gaming room.
Currently the highest price home in Utah is in Springville. The owners are $48,000,000 for 17,493 sq. ft, 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, 4 family rooms all on @3400 acres of Left Fork in Hobble Creek Canyon on land that varies in elevation from 5,700 feet to over 9,100 feet. Hmmmm…mountain or ocean view?
