Massive $159M Florida Estate Now Most Expensive Home in America (Again)

It was only a matter of time before La Palais Royal, a massive 60,500-square-foot estate in Hillsboro Beach in Florida, returned to the market. The property first appeared for $139 million in 2014 when it was still under its final stages of construction. The home didn't sell, so the owner — Robert Perira, founder of a Massachusetts-based construction company — took it off until construction of the main home was finally complete. While La Palais Royal did hold the title of Most Expensive Home in America for what seemed like mere minutes, it was almost immediately dethroned by Palazzo di Amore in Los Angeles, which at the time was asking a pretty outrageous $149 million. Shoot forward today and Palazzo di Amore's price is down to an, ahem, more obtainable $149 million, so La Palais Royal's new asking price of $159 million makes it the most expensive home for sale in America.

It is, of course, modeled after the Palace of Versailles >>
