Having a home seems to be one of the biggest American dream, one that doesn’t come true for many, unfortunately. But on the opposite end of the spectrum are those who have so much money that they are even able to afford the most expensive homes in the country.
While the average value of a family home in the U.S. is around $250,000, there are certain properties that are definitely anomalies when it comes to pricing.
Some of them are so outrageously expensive that a 30-year mortgage would cost the owner $380,000 per month! You’re probably wondering what you’re getting with that kind of money.
Don’t worry, we’re about to give you a lowdown of the most expensive homes in the country and all the luxurious amenities they entail.
Nine Acre Estate, Silicon Valley
Silicon Valley is one of the most expensive places to live in the United States and for a good reason. After all, it is the home of the tech industry and a place where dreams come true for budding entrepreneurs and computer programmers.
Among its repertoire of expensive homes, Silicon Valley also boasts a 8,900 square feet property called the Nice Acre Estate, which sits atop of a hill, situated in the heart of the city and offering a beautiful view of Bay Area. The property is valued at a whopping $117 million, bought by the SoftBank CEO, Masayoshi Son.
Spelling Manor, Los Angeles
Los Angeles is the hub of expensive properties, but nothing beats this custom-built mansion boasting a total of 123 rooms.
Going by the name of Spelling Manor, this property was originally listed for $150 million by its former owner, Candy Spelling after the death of her late husband and famous TV producer, Aaron Spelling. The palatial mansion eventually sold for $120 million last year.
Copper Beech Estate, Connecticut
When it comes to expensive properties, Connecticut is not falling behind. In fact, the city made headlines after one of its Greenwich properties was listed on the market for a whopping $190 million.
It took the owner a year to find a buyer for this 50-acre mansion, and in the end, it was sold at a discounted price of $120 million.
The massive estate boasts a 15,000 sq. feet house with several gardens, tennis courts, a spacious driveway and a beautiful hot tub with the view of Long Island Sound.
