For Sale: The Most Expensive Listing in the Nation
By Zoe Eisenberg
Want to live in the most expensive active listing in the country? Don’t we all. At $139 million, “Le Palais Royal” has carved out space as the priciest listing currently circulating. And it’s located in Florida, of all places.
The magnificent, French-inspired Beaux Arts masterpiece sits on Florida’s Atlantic Coast. The palatial, 60,000-square-foot estate roosts on more than four acres, with 465 feet of beachfront right on Millionaires Mile.
In addition to a strip of sand named after a club of the richest of the rich, Le Palais Royal has a 492-foot private dock, perfect for that private yacht you’ve always wanted, as well as an underground garage with parking for more than 30 cars. If that isn’t enough for you, then you will be tickled to know that the entryway is marked by a 13-foot, 22-carat gold-leaf gate and a 26-foot entrance fountain, one of six outside waterfalls lining the estate.
The front doors lead to a $2 million marble staircase with a steel-iron railing and (you guessed it) more gold leaf, which supposedly took craftsmen over two years to construct.
In addition to the estate’s 11 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms, the space is also home to the first-ever IMAX Theater contracted for private use, featuring a 50 by 27-foot screen and seating for 18 with a bar.
Currently under the final phase of construction, the space is slated for completion before the end of 2015, so start breaking open those piggy banks!
