The Most Expensive Listing in the U.S. is a $139 Million House in Fort Lauderdale Called Le Palais Royal

New, 19 comments


Hold on to your hat, the most expensive residential listing in the United States is now in Broward County and is a lavish 60,500 square foot estate in the final stages of construction in Hillsboro Beach, for a mindboggling $139 million price tag. The house is being called Le Palais Royal, and is inspired by (what else?) Versailles and other European palaces. That probably includes the actual Palais-Royal in Paris, to which it bears somewhat of a resemblance.

Designed by Miami-based architect Denio Madera, Le Palais Royal's list of superlative features is long and headache and/or envy inducing: 11 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms, $2 million marble staircase, 22-carat gold leafed gate, subterranean garage for 30 cars, 18 seat IMAX home theater with a 50 foot wide screen, 4,500 square foot infinity pool, another pool in the "Presidential Suite" (what is this, a hotel?), three more master suites with jacuzzis in rotundas, kennels for guard dogs, and is on a plot of land that stretches from ocean to Intracoastal Waterway. And it's not even in Palm Beach.
