You know a home is baller when it has its own name. And when that name is Billionaire, well, you can look but don’t touch. Perched in the hills of Los Angeles’ exclusive Bel Air neighborhood, Billionaire was the world’s most expensive new home when it hit the ultra-luxury market for $250 million in 2017. The price was later slashed to only $150 mil, and in October if finally sold for a mere $94 million. Quite the bargain. And what did the mystery buyer purchase, other than ultimate bragging rights?
• 38,000 square feet of living space, including 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, five bars, three kitchens, nine dining areas, and two elevators
• 17,000 square feet of deck space with panoramic unobstructed views from the mountains to the ocean
• a 40-seat state-of-the-art movie theater, as well as a huge pop-up screen by the 85-foot infinity pool (above) and another massive screen in the lounge/nightclub (below)
• a helipad
• 135 art installations, valued at $10 million
• an auto gallery with $30 million worth of luxury vehicles, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bentleys, a Rolls Royce, a Bugatti Veyron, and classic collectible cars
And we haven’t even covered things like the game room with a candy dispenser wall or the suite with a wrap-around jacuzzi, the four-lane bowling alley, the two outrageously stocked wine cellars, or the chrome, full-scale helicopter sculpture (just because). But all this extravagance could make a person soft. Let’s check out the fitness center and, for post-workout recovery, the wellness spa.

Our tour concludes with one of the many Billionaire spots for enjoying skinless chicken breasts and quinoa (or truffles and caviar).
