$139M Florida Spectacle is America's Most Expensive Listing

New, 58 comments

Asking a staggeringly expensive $139M, the Le Palais Royal in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., is officially the most expensive home on the market. Currently "under the final phase of construction" and promising completion by the end of 2015, the "magnificent, French-inspired Beaux Arts masterpiece," makes up for its, uh, not being built yet, with the seductive promise an 11-bedroom, 60,000-square-foot palace with more unnecessary amenities than even the most lavish of mega-mansions. Besides its 465-foot stretch of beachfront, 492-foot private dock that can accommodate "up to a 185-foot mega yacht," and underground garage with parking for over 30 cars, inside delights include "the first-ever IMAX Theater contracted for private use" and a highly necessary $2M marble staircase in the foyer.

Interested in a whole mess of gold leafing? Look no further! The gilt stuff covers just about every surface, including all the mahogany cabinetry in the kitchen, which just might be the most extravagantly ugly room in the entire abode. "Le Palais Royal is to be the most expensive listing on the market in America, and was designed to be fit for royalty and the upmost refined individual," says the brokerbabble. "This grand palace will be a landmark that rivals Europe's greatest palaces." Did we mention it's in Fort Lauderdale?
