America's most expensive home, The Palazzo di Amore, is up for sale. But what makes this the most expensive home in the country? Well for starters it's located on some of the most prestigious land in the country aka Beverly Hills and on top of that it's a whopping 25 acre compound with over 53,000 square feet of living space! This includes 12 bedrooms and 23 bathrooms. The project, which took almost 8 years to complete is truly something to behold. Check out our gallery below to explore this gem!
The entrance to real estate investor Jeff Greene's masterpiece includes a .5 kilometer driveway, which runs through a vineyard on it's way to the main 36,000 sq. ft. main villa.
Mr. Greene, who made a fortune betting against subprime mortgages, bought the estate out of receivership for $35 million in 2007 from Saudi businessman Mishaal K. Adham, while it was under construction.
Mr. Greene said he bought the estate as an investment property, though he and his wife, Mei Sze Greene, were married there in 2007.
Mr. Greene said he always intended to sell the property, but construction wasn’t completed “until literally a month ago.” He estimated he spent $25 million to complete the home, which was a shell when he bought it.
A separate, roughly 15,000-square-foot entertainment center has a bowling alley, a theater that seats 50 and a dressing room, and a discothèque with a rotating dance floor. Other amenities include a Turkish-style spa and a 128-foot-long reflecting pool.
