America’s Most Expensive Home Is $250 Million
America's most expensive home is for sale in Los Angeles, California for $250 million.
The new 12,000-square-meter home has 12 bedrooms and 21 bathrooms. The home also has three kitchens, a 25-meter swimming pool, a 40-seat movie theater, spa and bowling alley. It has an elevator to take people up and down four floors.
The home sits on a hill in the Bel Air neighborhood, a favorite living area for movie stars and other famous people. It has great views of the city, mountains and ocean.
American developer Bruce Makowsky built the house. He said only about 3,000 people in the world have enough money to buy it.
But what makes this home different from the many other expensive ones in Los Angeles? It also comes furnished with many built-in luxuries.
The buyer gets $30 million worth of expensive cars and motorcycles, including a Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari and a Bugatti.
The home also includes many furnishings and art pieces created by well-known designers and artists.
Included in the price are seven full-time workers who live in a separate part of the home.
Makowsky says people who visit the home quickly run out of words to describe it. "Every single thing in this house makes you feel like you're in heaven," he told the Associated Press.
He does not think the $250-million price is too high. He said the right person will be willing to pay for the luxury it provides, rather than just watching their billions of dollars sit in the bank.
"It's the kind of thing where I can't sell it," he said. "Somebody has to fall in love with it, and die over it."
One of the most unusual parts of the home is a helicopter sitting on the roof. But the helicopter – an old model used on an American television show in the 1980s – is just for show. Even for $250 million, you cannot buy takeoff and landing rights.

这处豪宅是美国开发商布鲁斯·马科夫斯基（Bruce Makowsky）设计建造的 。他表示全球只有约3000人能买得起这座豪宅 。
马科夫斯基表示，参观过豪宅的人顿时会觉得不知该如何形容它的奢华 。他接受美联社采访时表示：“房间内的每件物品都会让你觉得仿佛置身天堂 。”
他表示，2.5亿美元的售价并不离谱 。他认为，有缘人会心甘情愿购买房子的奢侈品，而不是让钱躺在银行的保险柜里 。
他说“这处豪宅并不是为了卖而建 。买主必须发自内心地喜欢并打算在此安度余生 。”
该豪宅最独特的地方是屋顶上有一架直升机 。该架直升机是20世纪80年代美国一部电视剧里所用的飞机，仅供观赏 。即使2.5亿美元也买不到起飞与降落权 。
