AN AMERICAN PALACE, ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE US HOMES FOR SALE
Right down the highway in coastal Hillsboro Beach there stands Le Palais Royal, a 60,500 sq ft estate on four acres of waterfront land – ocean to intracoastal – on the market for $159,000,000 – so, will the entity who has that much petty cash to purchase please step up?
Planned to resemble France’s Palace of Versailles, a must-stop-by for your next trip to Paris, features include a huge $2MM marble staircase, more than $3MM of gold leaf, 11 bedrooms, 30-car underground garage, IMAX theatre, 3,000-bottle wine cellar, waterfalls and a 1300 gallon fish tank. Two guest houses, each about 3,000 sq ft, will be included on an extra lot. Under construction are a go-kart track, ice-skating rink, bowling alley and night club, all to be ready in 2 years.
Right on: you never have to leave home. It may take months to explore the complete house.
Wouldn’t this make a spectacular Winter White House? But, can the US government afford it? They would need to build an airstrip, perhaps a hospital and make mainland access readily available for cars and walkers. It would definitely raise area home values. A good move.
