Ten years in the making, The One—the largest private residence in Los Angeles—is listed for US$295 million and could become one of the most expensive homes sold in the world

Taking up 105,000 sq ft of interior space on 3.8 acres of land in Bel-Air, Los Angeles, a luxury estate named The One is set to be auctioned online from February 28 to March 2 for US$295 million, with no reserve price. 

With 21 bedrooms and 49 bathrooms, the house offers panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles, the Pacific Ocean and the San Gabriel Mountains.

Amenities include a nightclub, a beauty salon and spa, a 40-seat cinema, five swimming pools, a tennis court, a four-lane bowling alley, and a 400-ft private outdoor running track, to name just a few of the astounding number of features in the home.

The One is a home filled with superlatives. If it sells at its listed price, it could become the priciest home ever sold in the US—and among the top five most expensive homes sold in the world.

During its 10-year construction, regulations were passed in the city limiting the size of single-family homes, meaning it will likely remain the largest private residence in Los Angeles for the foreseeable future.

Currently, the most expensive homes sold across the globe since 2006 include a 51,100-sq-ft Pollock’s Path house in Hong Kong, which takes the top spot with a sale price of US$361 million in 2017; and a 9,212-sq-ft Gough Hill Road estate, also in Hong Kong, which places fourth and sold for US$277 million in 2016, according to a report by Christie’s International Real Estate.

Inside the home, neutral tones dominate many of the spaces, which speaks to the beautiful landscape that surrounds the home and also “keeps the estate cohesive despite its staggering scale,” according to its listing agents. 

The master bedroom measures 5,000 sq ft and has its very own pool. A two-story library space comes complete with a balcony.

The outdoor areas offer California’s famous indoor-outdoor living: an infinity pool covers three sides of the home. It is attached to a covered entertaining space, surrounded by palm trees.

The home also boasts a number of custom pieces, including a butterfly installation by US artist Stephen Wilson, a rotating statue by US sculptor Mike Fields, and a piece by Italian glass sculptor Simone Cenedese.

In case you somehow run out of space in the main house, there is a 4,000-sq ft, three-bedroom guest house. A chandelier by Oto Murano provides a focal point to the space, which also features floor-to-ceiling windows. 

Located in a prime piece of Los Angeles real estate, it is—without LA’s’ infamous traffic—15 minutes from luxury shopping mecca Rodeo Drive and approximately 25 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport. A garage accommodates around 30 cars, with two car-display turntables. 

Jointly listed by real estate platform Compass and the Beverly Hills Estates, the home will be auctioned online on Concierge Auctions.
