Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos spent $165 million on his Beverly Hills estate in 2020. A colossal sum but which seems less compared to the price of the One Bel Air, one of the most expensive houses in the world and the most expensive in the United States, located in the chic neighborhood of Bel Air, neighboring Beverly Hills, in Los Angeles. The gigantic building has just arrived on the market at 295 million dollars, or approximately 257 million euros, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

The property, listed by Aaron Kirman, a real estate agent with US real estate brokerage firm Compass, and Branden and Rayni Williams, of The Beverly Hills Estate, is to be auctioned by Concierge Auctions on February 28. Unless it was sold before and the promoter Nile Niami, behind the project, was able to cover his debts. The house has indeed been placed in receivership by the Superior Court of Los Angeles County.
This house, which is twice the size of the famous White House, was initially to have its sale price set at an even higher price, 500 million dollars, an ubiquitous amount, but the construction took several years of delay and the promoter has accumulated financial problems. The One therefore goes on sale at $295 million, the highest price ever in California, if not in the country and beyond. But the auction, if held, would be without a reserve price and we could go well below these peaks.
21 bedrooms and 42 bathrooms
Offering 360 degree panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, downtown Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Mountains, the mansion sits on nearly two acres of land. It features 21 bedrooms and 42 bathrooms, five outdoor and indoor swimming pools, a nightclub, a beauty salon, a spa, a private 122-meter outdoor running track with a view of the city and a private cinema that can accommodate more than 40 people. This long list of assets is far from over as the property also features a two-story library/office with a balcony and fountains, a bar, a cigar lounge, a four-lane bowling alley, a sport, a tennis court, a 10,000-bottle wine cellar and a garage for more than 30 cars. In short, a real holiday residence!
