The most expensive home in America is closer than you think. Listed on the market for $195 million, “Palazzo de Amore” in Beverly Hills is owned by investor Jeff Greene, who, in 2007, set out to transform an unfinished property into a Mediterranean villa fit for a king. Offering 53,000 sq. ft. of living space with 12 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, and a separate guest house, this is the mansion that steals the spotlight from all others.

0x600-5“True to its name, Palazzo di Amore, this estate has been a labor of love for me,” Greene shared. For the past several years, he’s been renting the home out to deep pockets who can spare $475,000 a month. “In creating a palace for the modern era, I have set the highest standards of craftsmanship and artistry in every detail, from employing a 17-step painting process with antiquing to importing 70-year-old olive trees.”

0x600-1Only by traveling down a quarter mile long driveway and past three sets of gates does one arrive at Palazzo di Amore, a property that gives new meaning to the terms “extravagance” and “sprawling”. The master suite alone measures 5,000 sq. ft., lavishly-appointed perks include a Turkish-style spa, two-lane bowling alley, state-of-the-art theater, a “discotheque” with a rotating dance floor, and 128-foot long reflecting pool overlooking the property’s formal gardens. A seated dinner for 250 of your closest guests? No problem. With its own entertainment complex and 27-car garage, including an additional 150 parking spaces, this Mediterranean villa can accommodate the most elaborate gatherings and celebrations.

“Palazzo di Amore offers the best of everything: a world-class location in the heart of Beverly Hills, a grand residence built with masterful attention to detail, inspiring views that stretch to the ocean on a clear day, and a vineyard from which you can savor your very own wine,” adds Listing agent Joyce Ray.
