America is a place of opportunity and wealth, but when you start to take a look at the most expensive homes it is easy to get hung up on the wealth. You might be living in a one bedroom studio apartment trying to pay off student loans and work your way up at your dream job, but not everyone is living in tight quarters like you. The most expensive homes in America are lavish, over-the-top, stunningly beautiful and simply so costly that you can’t fathom their worth.
Why not check out how the other half lives and see what makes these homes top the most expensive homes in America list:
Copper Beach Farm, Greenwich, CT
This is not your typical farm house by any stretch of the imagination. This house is worth about $190 million and features 12 bedrooms with 9 bathrooms. It hosts an entire mile of shoreline, 2 private islands and a heated pool that is almost 80 feet long. Every luxury that you can imagine is packed into this property.
Penthouse at the Pierre Hotel, New York City, NK
When you stay at a hotel, you definitely don’t picture the type of amenities and luxuries that line every area of space in this penthouse. It checks in at about $125 million, but this includes a staff of 2, 5 fireplaces and 4 terraces. You might assume that $125 million would be your only cost, but don’t forget the additional $42,720 per month maintenance fee.
Fleur De Lys Mansion, Los Angeles, CA
The LA mansion is everything that you might imagine it to be and more. You don’t have to worry about hosting parties in a separate location, because it features a ballroom that can fit more than 200 guests inside. With a 9 car garage, staff quarters and a ¾ jogging track inside, you might never have to leave home. At $125 million it might almost be a bargain.
Casa Casurina, Miami, FL
This was home to the late Gianna Versace and has a pool that is lined with 24-karat gold. It features 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms with more than 24,000 square feet of space. If you want to see wealth at a whole new level, this really is the Miami mansion that makes a statement and costs about $125 million.
