The infamous modern-day fortress constructed by SAFE, a company known for designing unimaginably secure homes, looms over Sunset Plaza in Los Angeles and is currently looking for a new owner. The original listing price of $9.995 million has recently being chopped down to $7.25 million, making “one of the safest homes in the world,” yours for just $936 per square foot.
But don’t call your listing agent quite yet. While the five bedroom, eight bathroom mansion is spectacular both inside and out, the home is truly suited for a particular type of buyer, and it’s probably safe to say that unless you’re in desperate need of two panic rooms, two safe cores, and a helipad, this listing isn’t for you.
On the other hand, if this house does sound like something you’d like to call home, you will also be getting some impressive features (along with the panic rooms, of course). The five-story home comes with a wine cellar, elevator, home theater, gourmet kitchen, handicap accessible guest house, rooftop patio, and enough parking for twenty cars (including six indoor spots). There are also 80 windows featured in the home providing this single-family residence with a 360-degree view of Los Angeles.
Built in 2002 by SAFE (Strategically Armored and Fortified Environments), this extremely secure abode was designed around the principle of isolation as well as SAFE’s belief that, “No one wins a fight. There are only varying degrees of loss. Time, not force, is the critical factor in ensuring a safe outcome.” Any system designed and built by SAFE is not equipped with your typical home security system. The company does not rely on burglar alarms, the police, or security guards because they believe that these are not fail-proof and can have serious vulnerabilities. Instead, SAFE designs fully integrated strategic systems with detection, deterrence, defense, and offensive options.
So whether you’re looking for a great home with tons of space and unbeatable views of Los Angeles, or if you’re looking for a place to protect your family from, well, pretty much anything, then this is the home for you.
