A gated 25-acre estate in Beverly Hills has come on the market at $195 million, making it the most expensive home to be publicly listed for sale in the U.S.
The seller is real estate entrepreneur Jeff Greene, who owns properties in Florida, New York and California.
The Mediterranean-style villa, called Palazzo di Amore, sits on a knoll behind three sets of gates. Reached by a quarter-mile-long tree-lined drive, the mansion is approached through a vineyard and has canyon and cityscape views. Inside, the two-story marble entry features two sweeping staircases.
Palazzo di Amore, evoking pure love with its 23 bathrooms, quarter-mile driveway, and rotating dance floor, sits on 25 acres just off Coldwater Canyon (I imagine along Mulholland). The Palace of Love includes a 35,000-square-foot main house with 12 bedrooms, a 3,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, a separate 10,000-bottle cellar, a kitchen with walk-in fridge, a staff wing, and a Turkish spa; a 15,000-square-foot entertainment center with bowling alley, 50-seat theater, “a dressing room for live stage shows,” and a disco/ballroom with “state-of-the-art laser light system and revolving dance floor.”
