If you love to daydream about owning and living at a property that only the richest people on the planet could afford, then this truly incredible dream home in California is top of the list for a virtual tour.
Called The One, it is currently the most expensive home for sale in the United States and is twice as big as the White House, home of the US president in Washington.
But you’re going to need $295m, that’s about £217m using the current exchange rate as a guide, making it one of the most expensive houses for sale in the world.

But some property experts across the pond may think this is a ‘bargain’ price, as the sprawling contemporary mansion was once projected to be listed for as much as $500m.
But construction ran several years late, which caused severe financial issues for the developer so now someone super rich can bag the building for a bargain price. However, if The One sells anywhere near the $295 million guide price, it would be the most expensive home ever sold in California.
The purchase price would be well over the $177 million that venture capitalist Marc Andreessen paid for his Malibu mansion in 2021, and the $165 million that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos paid in 2020 for his Beverly Hills estate.
The Bel Air located house is perched on the top of a rocky promontory on a 3.8-acre estate and was actually raised during construction to optimise the opportunity for the most amazing views.
And it worked, as this beast of a house has 360 degree, panoramic views over the Pacific Ocean, downtown Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Mountains.
The raised position also means the infinity pool, fondly called the home’s moat by the agents, surely has the best city, coast and mountain views from any pool in the area, if not the state.
The house is, of course, an incredible party house, and can accommodate most of the party guests too, with 21 bedrooms and an astonishing 49 bathrooms.
One of the most striking features is the wraparound infinity pool that acts like a moat around most of the house, and is actually made up of five pools.
And if the weather becomes stormy or the heat is too much to take, there’s a luxurious 64ft indoor pool that has its own juice bar, as an option.
Somewhere inside the breathtaking 105,000 square feet of property is a massive nightclub and a four lane bowling alley.
There’s also a sizeable beauty salon, 10,000-square-foot sky deck, 400ft private outdoor running track with a glass-walled view of the city, and a private movie theatre with seating for over 40 people.
In addition to ownership of one of the world’s most spectacular homes, the property also includes butterfly artwork by Stephen Wilson, an Oto Murano chandelier by Vistosi, a rotating statue by Mike Fields, and a glass sculpture by Italian artist Simone Cenedese.

The area is home to Jennifer Lawrence, who moved there last year, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Liam Hemsworth, Miley Cyrus and Kylie Jenner to name just a few. Now that’s an A-list party guest list.
In addition to having illustrious neighbours, Bel Air is close to Rodeo Drive for shopping and UCLA. Downtown Los Angeles and LAX are just a short drive away too.
Website Top Ten Real Estate Deals states the property is listed by Aaron Kirman of Compass, Beverly Hills and Branden and Rayni Williams of The Beverly Hills Estates, Beverly Hills, and will go to Concierge Auctions, which if not sold prior, will be held online on February 28.
For the $295m guide price in Bel Air, you could buy approximately 1009 houses in Wales, based on the average house price of around £215,000.
Wales’ most expensive house currently for sale is a £6.5m country mansion in Monmouthshire – you could buy 33 of these for around the same as the guide price for The One in Bel Air, California.
Surely The One is one of the most expensive homes to ever go to auction in the world, but arguably the most amazing?
