Forget about the super mansions, the million-dollar homes that our A-list celebrities brag about. The Uber rich, with their insatiable taste for the finer things in life, is going for “Giga mansions.” What are Giga mansions, you say? These are sprawling real estate mammoths worth more than a whopping $100 million. Buckle up as we present to you five most expensive Giga Mansions.
The One by Nile Miami
While you are struggling to go up the homeownership ladder, the top 0.1% wealthiest people are looking for a name to call their enormous houses – the Giga Mansions. They are fancier than they Savoy inside out and more prominent than the White House on Capitol Hill.
Well, when it comes to Giga Mansions, “The One,” is at the forefront. A 100,000 square-foot monstrosity developed by Nile Miami in the fabulous and most exclusive Bel Air neighborhood, the property is twice as more massive as the White House.
The half-billion dollar property incorporates a $250,000 Champagne cellars, moats, IMAX theaters, jellyfish rooms, and 30-car gallery. And that isn’t all.
The Manor – owned by Petra Stunt
Although it looks like a dwarf beside The One, The Manor was once regarded as the biggest home in Los Angeles. The 56,000 square foot Giga Mansion was initially built by Aaron Spelling, the producer of 90210. It is currently owned by Formula One heiress Petra Stunt.
Bernie Ecclestone’s daughter purchased the 123 bedroom house for a cool $85 million in 2011. The home is now worth more than $120 million in the current LA market.
Hugh Hefner might be gone, but his legacy remains with us. His brainchild Playboy Mansion is an epitome of what a Giga Mansion should look like. The mansion was sold for a whopping $100 million in 2016. It sold even before hitting the market.
The Bubble Palace – Côte d’Azur, France
Le Palais Bulles (or the Bubble Palace) is the ultimate Giga Mansion. It is listed on the market for an insane $381,465,000. The 13,000 square foot home owned by Pierre Cardin boasts some of the ritziest amenities and first-class facilities, including three swimming pools, ten space-age bedrooms, 500-seater amphitheater, and so forth.
Seven The Pinnacle – Big Sky, Montana
Owned by Tim and Edra Blixseth, the cofounders of Yellowstone Club, the $155 million property is nestled in the heart of a golf and ski community for Uber rich. The home boasts multiple pools, heated floors, a luxurious wine cellar, a gym, and its ski lift.
