It doesn’t absolutely charge a hardly pretentious, faux-French appellation to lift the address of this breathtaking, 19,800-square-foot, five-floor accommodation in the affection of Manhattan.

As the old aphorism goes, if you accept to ask the price, you can’t allow it. Though in the case of this massive 74-acre retreat in Silicon Valley’s Woodside, a 30-mile drive south of San Francisco, it still applies today. So unique, and so all-inclusive is the admixture that the Fleishhacker ancestors that still owns it, is abnegation to set a amount and will delay for (sizable) offers. All that anybody is appealing assertive of, is that it will exhausted the antecedent Woodside almanac of $117 actor set in 2012 for a nine-acre estate. It was over a aeon ago aback broker Mortimer Fleishhacker, Sr. accumulated nine accoutrements of acreage and congenital an English-style mansion.

Why buy a acreage in Napa Valley aback you can abound your own grapes appropriate in the average of Beverly Hills? That was absolute acreage mogul Jeff Greene’s cerebration aback he bought his spectacular, 25-acre Palazzo di Amore—or Palace of Love—for $35 actor in 2008 and spent abounding added millions renovating it and burying vines. In accession to the 35,000-square-feet capital abode with its 200-seat dining room, the Tuscan-style acreage appearance a two-level, 15,000-square-feet ball ‘complex’ with bowling alley, 50-seat cine theater, a amphitheater with DJ berth and revolving ball attic and parking for 150 cars.

The advertisement allegedly came in acknowledgment to her sister Tamara’s equally-lavish Kensington home actuality burglarized and an estimated $67 actor account of adornment snatched. Alike at $130 million, the 14-bedroom abode is article of a steal; the 31-year-old reportedly paid $85 actor to the antecedent owner, JCB earth-mover billionaire Lord Bamford, again spent accession $33 actor on a makeover that included digging bottomward to actualize one of the better clandestine basement pond pools in London. If Ms. Ecclestone’s name sounds familiar, bethink that aftermost July she awash her 56,000-square-foot LA estate, congenital for the backward TV ambassador Aaron Spelling, for $120 million.
Talk about a acknowledgment on investment. Aback in 1985, media mogul William Ziff bought a 15-acre ocean-to-lake Approach Bank lot for $5 million. He congenital a brace of houses on it, forth with a nice basin and, 31 years afterwards in 2016, listed it for a amazing $195 million. Not decidedly it didn’t sell. And today, alike with a $57 actor amount cut – it’s now listed at a still eye-watering $137.5 million—Gemini is still attractive for a buyer. But aggregate about this compound-by-the-sea on Manalapan island aloof south of Approach Beach, is eye-watering. Its capital abode spans no beneath than 62,200 aboveboard anxiety and comes with 12 all-inclusive bedrooms. There’s additionally a seven-bedroom bedfellow abode alleged Mango House, added two four-bedroom beachside cottages, and accession guesthouse with seven studios. Alike by Approach Bank standards, Gemini is unique.
Back in 2017, the allurement amount for this amazing 42-acre beach admixture on Jule Pond Drive, already endemic by Henry Ford II, was $175 million. Alas, not alike a $30 actor amount ‘re-alignment’ has apparent any austere hand-raisers materialize.

Styled like an Italian palazzo, the 20,000-square-foot capital abode is complemented by a 5,000-square-foot bedfellow house, a basin abode and two added bedfellow houses, bringing the absolute active amplitude to added than 28,000 aboveboard feet. Added appearance accommodate an added 2.8-acre abutting lot accomplished for development, a huge pond pool, tennis cloister and 30-car motor court.
When it agilely hit the bazaar in October, the 60-room Casa Encantada, sprawling over eight and a bisected acreage of chic Bel-Air, became the best big-ticket allotment of absolute acreage on auction in the US. Dating aback to the 1930s, the acreage was already endemic by auberge magnate Conrad Hilton.

Winnick paid a appear $94 actor in 2000 for the Georgian masterpiece, and proceeded to absorb accession baby affluence employing a aggregation of 250 craftsmen to undertake an all-embracing two-year restoration.
You ability accept anticipation that the afterlife aftermost September of 91-year-old oil administrator T. Boone Pickens ability accept had his brood rethinking the $250 actor amount tag of his admired Mesa Vista Agronomical in the Texas Panhandle. Not so; it’s still a nice, annular division of a billion dollars. Take it or leave it. Boone Pickens spent abutting to 50 years accumulating the acreage which today covers over 65,000 acres, or over 100 aboveboard miles. What it includes is afar of the hasty Canadian River, four homes including a 33,000-square-feet capital lodge, a clandestine airport with 6,000-foot aerodrome and terminal building, a 30-seat home theatre, golf course, tennis course, and a two-story bean abode with 40 bird dogs.
Discovery Channel artist John Hendricks is still cat-and-mouse for that ‘right’ client to appear forth – with a additional $279 million. The 8,700-acre Gateways Canyons Ranches and Resort was the dream of Hendricks to body a massive admixture in the diminutive boondocks of Gateway, Colorado about 180 afar west of Aspen. The billionaire bought his aboriginal bindle of acreage actuality in the 1990s, and kept on affairs till he accomplished today’s massive acreage.

With Hendricks and his wife Maureen spending beneath time at the ranch, he says it’s time to sell. Aloof not at any price.
Looking like a set from a shag-a-delic Austin Powers movie, appearance figure Pierre Cardin’s agrarian Cote d’Azur vacation home, le Palais Boules, or Bubble Palace, delivers absolute acoustic overload. Designed in 1975 by Hungarian artist Antii Lovag, this array of blush chaotic annual pots overlooking the shimmery Mediterranean abutting to Cannes, took 14 years to build. Cardin, now 97, bought the admixture in 1992 and listed it for auction in 2017 afterwards a five-year restoration. The allurement price? A jaw-dropping 350 actor euros, or $389 actor today. With 26 barnacle-like pods, 13,000-square anxiety of autogenous space, 10 bedrooms, several pond pools, a 500-seat amphitheater and not a beeline band in the place, this bubbalicious admixture is absolutely an acquired taste.
A year on, and there are still no takers – and no amount bead – for this run-down, dingy, four-bedroom fixer-upper on a third of an acre in Hong Kong. Could it be the seemingly-astronomical $447 actor allurement price? Apparently not. That’s because the 5,700-square-foot tear-down sits on arguably the priciest allotment of absolute acreage on the planet – the gated Average Gap Road association that’s allotment of Hong Kong Island’s The Aiguille adjacency – abbreviate for Victoria Peak. Case in point; an abandoned lot on adjacent 75 Aiguille Road sold, not so continued ago, for a amazing $657 million, according to The Absolute Deal Hong Kong. Alike so, $447 actor may be ambitious cerebration on account of the alien owner. That said, Christie’s International currently has a advertisement for a five-bedroom townhouse in The Aiguille with a $154 actor asking. As they say in the acreage business: location, location, location. And locations don’t appear any added celebrated than the Peak, on Hong Kong Island. In best added chic genitalia of the planet, this unassuming, colonial-style 5,700-square-foot, four-bedroom home congenital in 1991 wouldn’t get a additional glance. But because it’s perched aloft the Peak, comes with angle of Deep Baptize Bay and is aloof a 10-minute drive from Hong Kong’s Axial Business District, it’s listed for an absurd $447 million. Of course, any client will apparently accept the abode broken bottomward and a agleam new mega-mansion congenital on its third-of-an-acre abounding lot.
The acrylic is still drying, and the final agriculture is activity in. But the world’s aboriginal giga-mansion – The ONE on a Bel-Air acropolis – is assuredly advancing completion. What hasn’t afflicted is that eye-watering amount tag, a amazing $500,000,000 as in bisected a billion dollars. What that absorbing sum will buy you is a 100,000-square-feet, 20-bedroom admixture perched aerial aloft Bel Air on four acres, with amazing 360-degree ceaseless views. It’s the conception of cine ambassador angry abounding absolute acreage developer Nile Niami and artist Paul McClean, who accept taken seven years to assemble this ultimate spec-home. Among its aggregation of jaw-dropping features; a 5,500-square-feet adept suite, 30 bathrooms, a 30-car auto ‘gallery’, bristles pond pools, a 36-seat cine theater, six-lane bowling alley, and naturally, a nightclub.
