With a list price large enough to make a billionaire’s eyes water — $160 million — America’s most expensive home, Villa Firenze, will be going on the auction block on Jan. 26 with no reserve and no minimum bid, TopTenRealEstateDeals.com reports.
Insulated on 10 acres in Beverly Park, the most exclusive part of Beverly Hills, it claims two firsts: the most expensive home in the country and the most expensive ever to go to auction. Will it sell? Will there be an exceptional deal made?
Naturally, the most expensive home would be located in Los Angeles’ most expensive neighborhood. Not only is Beverly Park guard-gated at the north and south entrances, but there are also gates within the community as well as gates to each residence — some with private guards. Denzel Washington, Sylvester Stallone, Mark Wahlberg, and more red-carpet regulars and business moguls call Beverly Park home.
The motor court at Villa Firenze has exotic 40-foot Canary Island palm trees, a fountain, and parking for up to 30 cars.
Encompassing 28,660 square feet, Villa Firenze houses 13 bedrooms, 17 full baths, and eight half baths. Outstanding features include huge windows, fireplaces, coffered ceilings, and wide-arched walk-throughs, and 20,000 square feet of formal entertaining space. The grounds contain a two-story guest house, a pavilion with a pool house, and a tennis court. There is a jogging/walking trail around the perimeter of the property, which also has water features, gardens, and multiple verandas.
Concierge Auctions, in cooperation with agents Jeff Hyland and Rick Hilton of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, are handling the sale.
