Move over Florida megamansion with 33 bedrooms, there’s a new top dog in the national real estate market. Just listed for a bonkers $250 million in L.A.’s Bel Air, this lavish pile of glass, white walls, and turf is the work of luxury developer Bruce Makowsky, who famously sold a Beverly Hills spec home to Minecraft creator Markus Persson for $70M, a house that Jay Z and Beyoncé had also been eyeing.

While L.A. is no stranger to absurdly high asking prices—which experts say are more or less shots in the dark—this Bel Air pad is now the most expensive home ever listed in the country (and if sold for anywhere near that, it would be the biggest sale ever as well.) According to CNBC, the property took more than 300 people over four years to build.

Billed as a “curated lifestyle” in the form of a tricked-out billionaire estate, the house comes fully furnished with both the fun (Art! Cars! Candy!) and the functional—how about a paid-for chef and masseuse?

Here it is by the numbers:

  • 38,000 square feet inside
  • 17,000 square feet of outdoor decks
  • 12 bedrooms (two master suites, 10 guest suites)
  • 21 bathrooms
  • 6 bars (one by the pool)
  • 3 kitchens
  • 40 reclining leather seats in the James Bond-themed home theater, which comes with a 22-foot screen, 57 speakers, 16 subwoofers, and 7,000 movies preloaded in the 4K projector
  • 12 super rare, super expensive cars in the “auto gallery,” worth $30 million
  • 100 art installations, including a larger-than-life Leica camera
  • 4-lane bowling alley lounge
  • 2 wine-champagne cellars
  • 2 commercial elevators
  • 270-degree view of the L.A. skyline, ocean, and mountains.
  • 7 full-time staff members (including a chef, chauffeur, and masseuse), paid-for for two years

... and for good measure:

  • 1 massage room/spa, gym, 85-foot infinity pool, game room with a glass “candy wall”, and rooftop helipad
