Location, location, location. This common rational of real estate professionals around the globe is most accurate when examining Los Angeles – a city known for boasting some of the most prestigious and exclusive real estate in the world.
Properties in the ultra-luxury market are judged by a different set of standards than traditional real estate. Every inch and detail of the property is taken into consideration, but location plays an enormous role in the final valuation of the estate, often exceeding the value of square-footage and amenities. In Los Angeles, kings of industry and commerce, celebrities, and royalty flock from all over the world to buy the few remaining houses and undeveloped tracts of land in the world-famous communities they see on TV.
Dreams examined what transpires when you combine the scarcity of Los Angeles’ location with a no-budget, no-limits design influenced by mega-yachts, private jets, and lifestyles of the ultra-affluent.
Our findings? A masterpiece built exclusively for the most discerning billionaire.
Major luxury developer Bruce Makowsky, known for curating, designing and bringing to life some of the most stunning homes in the country, has unveiled his greatest masterpiece, a brand new $250 million spec home located at 924 Bel Air Road in Los Angeles. Setting a record for the country’s most expensive home ever listed for sale, the 38,000-square foot new construction home plus an additional 17,000-square feet of entertainment decks includes two master suites, 10 oversized VIP guest suites, 21 luxury bathrooms, three gourmet kitchens, five bars, a massage studio/wellness spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, 85-foot glass tile infinity swimming pool, 40-seat 4K Dolby Atmos Theater, four-lane bowling alley/lounge, sprawling auto gallery with cars valued at more than $30 million, seven-person full time staff, over 100 curated art installations, an outdoor hydraulic pop-up theater, two fully-stocked champagne/wine cellars, a massive assorted candy wall and the most advanced home tech system in the country.
After completing the sale of his record breaking $70 million spec home in Beverly Hills in early 2015, Makowsky was dubbed the Spec King and set his sights on breaking his record by building the most extraordinary home in the United States. Located within the confines of the country’s ultra-exclusive enclave of Bel Air, this estate is the pinnacle of splendor and the epitome of luxury. Boasting an astonishing array of curated amenities and bespoke items from around the world, the mega-mansion offers eight distinct ingredients that no other home in the world has within four meticulously curated levels of seamless indoor and outdoor nirvana, all enhanced by 270-degree unobstructed views that span from the snow covered mountains all the way to the Pacific Ocean, with the incredible Los Angeles skyline in-between.
The lavish excess on display at this estate was carefully formulated with the elite client in mind. Having spent a significant amount of time on mega-yachts and large private jets that can sell from $150 million to $500 million, Makowsky identified a tremendous opportunity to develop luxury real estate that would exceed the demands of the super wealthy. “This home was curated for the ultimate billionaire who wants the best of everything that exists in life,” said Makowsky. “Until now, the ultra-luxury market was void of homes that even came close to matching the level of mega-yachts and private jets that billionaires spend millions of dollars on every year. There are hundreds of new billionaires created each year, and they are increasingly setting their sights on this coveted enclave of California for everything it has to offer.”
With razor-sharp attention to detail and a jaw-dropping design, 924 Bel Air Road is a playground of creative impulse and stylistic allure, guaranteed to ignite every sense; from the natural beauty of the surrounding California landscape seen from every room, to the various pieces of one-of-a-kind hand-cut stone and marble. Taking more than four years to complete by a crew of 250 people, 924 Bel Air Road will be among the most amazing man-made achievements of art and architecture ever built.
