Ever dream about what you’d do if you won the lottery? (Who hasn’t? If you haven’t, tell us why not!) Topping the list for many is the purchase of a luxurious new home in an exotic location. So if you want to blow that jackpot all in one place (with some reserved for the crew of caretakers you’ll need), allow us to take you on a tour of the most expensive home currently for sale in the United States.
Gemini, an estate – it can’t honestly be called a home – located on a barrier island in Manalapan, Florida, is situated on over 15.5 acres of tropical waterfront beauty. The walled compound includes a 62,200 square foot home, an additional seven-bedroom house, two four-bedroom cottages, staff housing apartments, managers’ offices, and spectacular views on both sides thanks to frontage on both the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. It’s owned by the Ziff family, #13 on the Forbes list of America’s richest families, and listed with the prestigious Christie’s International Real Estate.
For the bargain price of $195 million, all this can be yours:
- 33 bedrooms
- 34 full baths and 13 partial baths (that a lot of toilets!)
- Biking trails
- Fitness center
- Boat facilities, dock and slip
- Tennis and basketball court
- Below-ground living room with skylights
- Wine cellar
- Home theater
- Expansive gardens and ponds
- Golf course
- Private beach
And many, many more amenities – too many to list. The exclusive property is private (except the staff you’ll need to maintain it), secluded, and undeniably luxurious. The appropriately tropical decor is tasteful and unique, not gaudy like other private estates, featuring lots of warm woods and native plants. Check it out:
