An insane mega mansion is underway in the Los Angeles Bel Air neighborhood.
When the Los Angeles Business Journal first reported on the construction of the property, it was expected to measure approximately 85,000 square feet. However, according to Bloomberg News, the compound will surpass the initial measurements and will even exceed 100,000 square footage of living space.
The grand property will have a 74,000-square-foot main residence and three smaller houses on the four-acre property. The main residence will have a 5,000-square-foot master bedroom.
The overall compound, which sits on a hilltop in Bel Air, will feature plush amenities such as personal nightclub and casino, a “jelly fish room” with water-filled tanks on three walls, four swimming pools including a 180ft long infinity pool, 45-seat IMAX-style home theater and 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Beverly Hills, downtown L.A.
Film producer and developer Nile Niami, who has been speculated to be a real estate investor, has plans on putting the ostentatious residence on the market for $500 million.
The mega mansion’s architect Paul McClean told Bloomberg News there are a lot of amenities in the home that will help preserve water, as California suffers from a record drought. However, he did not confirm whether or not the property will be a green and energy-efficient home. McClean did confirm the property is similar to a palace and he said, “The house is about public functions rather than domestic living.”
The mega mansion will become the largest and priciest home in U.S. history. It’s more than double the size of the White House. It also trumps the 90,000-square-foot estate in Orlando featured in the documentary The Queen of Versailles.
