With the recent $120 million sale of Greenwich’s Copper Beech Farm, previously the priciest single-family home in America, realtor.com® has recently updated their list of the most expensive homes currently for sale.
While a prime 258-acre parcel in the Bel Air community of Los Angeles ranks as the most expensive property with an ask of $125 million, the crown of “most expensive home” now rests on an opulent mansion-estate in New York City.
The Upper East Side is no stranger to multimillion-dollar properties, but this bow-wrapped mansion raised the bar when it debuted during the 2013 holiday season for $114.07 million. Owned by Florida Panthers owner Frank Viola, the opulent home now sets the standard for luxury on realtor.com®, and for good reason.
The new “most expensive listing” touts 20,000 square feet of living space spread across six floors and 19 rooms.
Interiors comprised of the finest European-imported materials and state-of-the-art systems offer flashes of grandeur, while amenities include a two-story movie theater, a game room, a fitness room with a sauna, and massive closets that double as panic rooms.
If that sounds tiring, don’t sweat it –– in between its many levels is an elevator lined in onyx.
