This $500 Million House Could Be The Most Expensive House In The World

by Robert Anthony

There was a point in time when a $95 million penthouse in New York blew us away.

But these days, it isn't long before something slightly better looking and slightly more expensive comes along -- especially when you're talking about luxury real estate.

Speaking of slightly more expensive, there's a $500 million penthouse being built in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Because, you know, you're totally going to need a place to park 30 cars you actually drive.

But hey, you shouldn't detect any sarcasm there. After all, if you're able to afford a $500 million house in Bel Air, you probably have enough money to buy 30 cars.

Nile Niami would know. He's the one having this 100,000-square-foot home built!

If you're not familiar with Niami, he's a Hollywood producer-turned-property developer who built and sold a home to the Winklevoss twins for $18 million, according to Daily Mail.

And this new project he's working on is a masterpiece that is clearly only fit for royalty.

Priced at $500 million, this Bel Air pad will be the most expensive house in the world once it is completed. If that's not enough to inspire you to become a billionaire, we're not sure what is.

Niami expects it to take 20 months to complete.

Looking for some good ol' motivation? This $500 million home in Bel Air, California should do the trick.

The property, which is currently being built, is the brainchild of Nile Niami.

Once it's done, the home will feature a jellyfish room, a private IMAX theater, four swimming pools and room to safely park 30 cars.

This isn't the first time Niami created something special. Not too long ago, he built and sold an $18 million home to the Winklevoss twins.

Once complete, the home will offer breathtaking views of the LA basin, the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding Beverly Hills area.

It could be the most expensive home in the world.
