The Los Angeles luxury home market is one of the hottest luxury real estate markets in the world, but the term ‘luxury’ comes nowhere close to describing the properties listed below. These mega mansions redefine all previously held concepts of what it means to live in no-expense-spared, one-of-a-kind opulence.
From 100,000 square feet of living space to helipads, to private orchards, bespoke furnishings, car display turntables, private night clubs, cigar and tequila bars, water features, and dramatic views of the city and ocean to rival any in the world – these properties’ amenities are only limited by what is structurally possible.
We invite you to tour these exceptional masterpieces of design to view unparalleled, world-class living at its very finest.
Incomparable amenities. Unparalleled opulence. Dominating the LA skyline with panoramic views stretching from downtown to the ocean to the Getty Museum, and sitting majestically on an impeccable four-acre estate, The One is the one-and-only mega-jewel of Bel Air.
It is simply The One.
No extravagance has been spared in this massive 100,000 square foot contemporary, ultra-mega-luxury mansion, designed by architect Paul McClean and interior designer Katheryn Rotondi, and painstakingly brought to life with staggering perfection for over eight years by luxury real estate developer, Nile Niami. With its futuristic, starkly geometric design, the mansion stretches a full quarter of a mile along Stradella Road in ultra-tony Bel Air, with a main driveway accessible by a private cul-de-sac called Airole Way.
Described as the biggest and most expensive house ever built in the U.S., The One boasts more square footage than either the White House (55,000 sq ft), Mar-a-Lago (62,500 sq ft) or Hearst Castle (68,000 sq ft). It is also $100 million more than the most expensive home sale in the U.S. to date – the $238 million penthouse purchased by entrepreneur and hedge fund manager Ken Griffin in New York City in 2019.
The One’s amenities? First-class does not even begin to describe them. The mansion features 42 bathrooms, 21 bedrooms, a 6,000 sq ft master suite with its own private swimming pool and two bedroom-sized dressing rooms, a 30-car garage complete with car display turntables, a helipad, 400-foot jogging track, tennis courts, a four-lane bowling alley, fully equipped spa, 40-seat movie theater, 10,000 sq ft sky deck complete with putting green, five swimming pools, in-house night club, cigar and tequila bars, glass-encased library, hair salon and art gallery. Every possible luxury has been included to make this mansion the last word in spare-no-expense, billionaire-level opulence.
The One also features a magnificent 200-guest capacity “Philanthropy Wing,” with floating pods overlooking the LA skyline so that the owners may host charity galas in impeccable and glamorous style as befitting the crème de la crème of Hollywood glitterati. Outside, there are multiple infinity pools, and a moat surrounds the entire property, so that the house feels like it is floating on water. There is ample separate, luxury housing on the property for a large retinue of staff.
Nothing has been overlooked, nothing spared to make The One a one of its kind in the world. The One represents a new standard in expansive ultra-luxury living never before seen in the U.S., and the property will make real estate history when it is sold.
It is The One.
