To The West: 50,000+ SQ FT Houses For Sale In America

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

America has earned a reputation for big homes – we did coin the term “McMansion” after all. However, when it comes to finding absolutely huge houses for sale, you’ll typically only find these in the chateaus and castles of Europe or the insanely opulent multi-floor condos of Dubai.

One of the reasons for this is obvious: for as much suburban sprawl as we Americans have managed to roll out over the past 200+ years of our existence, most of the major urban centers where the rich and mega-rich amassed their fortunes and built their properties weren’t big on space. They preferred to be closer to one another, to their families, and, of course, to their businesses.

So, to find absolutely huge houses for sale in America, one must move away from Manhattan and Greenwich and look to the West. Here are 2 fine examples of huge houses for sale in America with floor plans boasting over 50,000 square feet of living space – both, as you might have guesses – in America’s West.

1 Buggy Whip Drive – Rolling Hills, CA

From its artisan detailing to full catering facilities and available room conversion to a 350 attendee ballroom, to its Moroccan-style baths and panoramic views of area beaches, downtown LA, the Hollywood Hills and the San Gabriel Mountains, this home is nestled in a 24-hour guarded gated community mere minutes from the city.

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

mega mansion floor plansWhen you think of a mega mansion floor plan, you may think of staff and caretakers quarters, floor to ceiling windows, gourmet kitchens and maybe even something as over-the-top as a bowling alley or indoor sport court. But, what are the absolute must-have amenities for luxury mansion floor plans? Following a tour of Serenity Ridge estate in Colorado – the largest private home ever to be put up for sale at no-reserve absolute auction on September 27th, 2014 – the must-have list practically wrote itself.

3 Indoor Mansion Floor Plan Must-Haves:

Spaces To WorkMansion floor plans don’t exactly pay for themselves, and those individuals truly successful enough to own such expansive and exclusive addresses also need to find time and space to work – and perhaps even lodge and conduct business with (not to mention entertain) important clients. Serenity Ridge does not disappoint in this department, thanks to its executive boardroom and additional conference room plus two apartment suites for out-of-town guests. Read more »

3 Mega Mansions For Sale West Of The Rocky Mountains

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

While The Hamptons and Star Island near Miami may be some of the first locales that spring to mind when you think of mega mansions for sale, there are countless more breathtakingly beautiful (and often far more expansive/expensive) offerings in America’s West.

Here are three of our favorite mega mansion finds:

1.    The Beverly House: 1011 North Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, CA

beverly hills mega mansion for saleWhile not the largest piece of property on our list (this parcel tops out at a mere 6 acres), The Beverly House does sit on one of the most storied pieces of land in the world atop its very own knoll overlooking nearby Sunset Boulevard. Commissioned by banking magnate Milton Getz and designed by Gordon Kaufmann, The Beverly House was purchased in 1946 by William Randolph Hearst, who lived there for the rest of his days and even served as the location of John and Jacqueline Kennedy’s honeymoon. Built of terra-cotta stucco, the H-shaped mega mansion is a beautiful balance of Spanish and Italian building, with ornately carved ceilings, stunning paneled walls, French doors, multiple balconies, arched ceilings, herringbone parquet floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows which overlook the famous cascading waterfalls to the pool and Venetian columns beyond. There’s a garden level with an art-deco nightclub, wine cellar, and one of two projection rooms – in keeping with its Los Angeles locale. Another level features a spa, there are two master suites, staff accommodations and guest suites galore, lighted tennis court with indoor bar, another guesthouse above the eight-car garage, and so much more. This mega mansion for sale is listed for $135,000,000 and you may even recognize it as a key backdrop in movies like “The Godfather” and “The Bodyguard”. Read more »
