Real estate is booming for some lucky sellers. A few of the following properties (or rather estates) are listed for nearly $200 million, and worth every penny!
Find out what is included in the top 11 most expensive homes for sale in the US:
1. The most expensive home currently on the American market is a tropical compound on the prestigious barrier island of Manalapan, just south of Palm Beach in Florida. Boasting a whopping 62,873 square feet of living space, the estate includes 33 bedrooms and 47 bathrooms — enough for a small army of guests.
Price: $195 million
Permanent residents and guests alike can enjoy every imaginable indoor and outdoor amenity, as well as thousands of feet of private beach on the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway.
2. Located in the ritzy Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, the home was built on speculation on the same lot where Barbara Streisand’s “Mon Rêve” estate once stood. The new structure covers a whopping 38,000 square feet and has 10 bedrooms and 20 full baths.
Additional amenities include private hiking trails and a movie-theater complex with its own guest valet entrance.
3. Situated on 25 acres of precious Beverly Hills property, Palazzo di Amore leaves out nothing in its incredible design and endless amenities. The 53,000-square-foot main home includes 12 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, and space for thousands of guests in a multitude of entertaining rooms.
Created by famous developer Mohamed Hadid (father of models Gigi and Bella), the property’s highlights include wine-producing vineyards, waterfalls, parking for 150 cars, gardens, tennis courts, views from the city to the ocean, security measures, and much more.
4. Briar Patch, another stately residence on 11 acres that border Georgica Pond in the Hamptons, is a traditional home that offers the best of waterfront living with the charm of vast expanses of woodlands.
The 10,000-square-foot main house is on the National Register of Historic Places, and features unique interior details like handmade wallpaper. It’s suited to accommodate any number of guests, from a big event for hundreds of people, to a cozy dinner for four.
5. One of Beverly Hills’ trophy estates, this 18,000-square-foot residence used to belong to comedian and philanthropist Danny Thomas.
Beyond sweeping views from downtown to the canyons and back, the real allure of the home lies in its interior details: Gold-leaf moldings, hand-woven carpets, and European refinements make it unlike any other.
6. Rancho San Carlos in California has been owned by the same family for over 100 years, and it’s easy to see why. Sitting on 237 acres, the 30-room main residence spans almost 30,000 square feet on two natural terraces, and features unique design details that correspond to the house’s rich history.
Additional perks include 10 guest cottages, extensive equestrian facilities, and sprawling orchards.
7. Not only is this 20-room corner duplex exquisitely furnished and decorated, but it’s also famous for being the largest existing original apartment on Fifth Avenue.

Price: $120 million
Built in 1931, it retains numerous details from the period, including multiple fireplaces and antique leather walls in the library. Gorgeous views of Central Park are also a selling point.
8. (TIE) Sycamore Valley Ranch in Los Olivos, California, is the ultimate ranch retreat, situated on almost 2,700 acres of hills and gardens.
Price: $100 million
Besides the 12,000-square-foot main residence, three separate guest homes, several barns, and corrals and shelters for farm animals make the property perfect for animal and nature lovers.
8. (TIE) Like something straight out of “The Great Gatsby,” this magnificent estate in Great Neck, Long Island boasts 13 bedrooms, 35 bathrooms, indoor and outdoor pools, health complexes, game rooms, a bowling alley, and a casino.
Price: $100 million
Private gardens lead to a pier for a private yacht, and the iconic New York City skyline is visible from the extensive waterfront. The estate was previously owned by Tamir Sapir, a Russianémigré who made his fortune in New York real estate. He died in 2014.
8. (TIE) An asking price at this level can only stand for something extraordinary, and that’s exactly the word for this 312-acre oceanfront property on Martha’s Vineyard.

The stately main house gives way to more unique attractions: A massive expanse of private beach on the Atlantic Ocean, a 35-acre pond, miles of walking and equestrian trails, and plenty of room for more to be built.
11. Three bedrooms and four bathrooms in a 5,000-square-foot home might not sound worthy of such an extreme price tag, but the home happens to sit on Pumpkin Key, its own 26-acre private island in the Florida Keys.
What’s more, the property is just a 10-minute helicopter ride from Miami, and 10 minutes by boat to Key Largo’s exclusive Ocean Reef Club, with an airstrip for private jets.
