COLDWELL BANKER Previews International is listing the two most expensive homes in the nation.
Joyce Rey and Stacy Gottula are listing agents for the Mediterranean villa, Palazzo di Amore in Beverly Hills at $195 million.
They pair also have a $139 million Versailles-style home in Hillsboro Beach, Florida, on their books.
The Beverly Hills compound is owned by real estate entrepreneur Jeff Greene, who owns commercial property in Florida, Los Angeles and buildings in downtown Manhattan.
Greene owns three properties in Manhattan: The Soho commercial buildings 92 and 100 Vandam Street, which he bought in 2012, and 56 Broome Street. All three properties are being converted into condominiums.
His Beverly Hills home has a 15,000 s/f entertainment center that includes a disco/ballroom with a revolving turn table style dance floor, DJ booth and a laser-light system.
It has a 50-seat private screening room, a bowling alley and a game room and can host up to 250 guests for a seated dinner or event.
“If it were to sell for $195 million, it would handily surpass the current sale record of $120 million for Copper Beech Farm in Greenwich, CT earlier this year,” said Rick Goodwin, publisher of Unique Homes & Ultimate Homes.
The main residence on Copper Beach Farm was a 13,500 square foot Victorian mansion.
Greene spent millions renovating the home and said, “True to its name, Palazzo di Amore, this estate has been a labor of love for me.”
Rey and Gottula set the 2010 national sales record when they sold Mohamed Hadid’s estate, Le Belvedere in Bel Air, listed for $72 million.
Macklowe Properties unveiled the penthouse at its 737 Park Avenue condominium project priced at $39.5 million.
The 1940s building has been redeveloped as 55 apartments with architectural restoration and modernization by Handel Architects and Moed de Armas & Shannon Architects.
The 6,003 s/f penthouse is designed to feature four bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms.
Spanning the entire 21st floor with a 2,271 s/f wraparound terrace, it has 11 ft. ceilings, landmark-approved windows, an 8×34 ft. skylight.
A custom staircase leads to a 3,757 s/f private roof pre-wired for lighting and equipped with gas and water connections for an outdoor kitchen.
“By listing the penthouse at 737 Park Avenue, we are offering the rare chance for a buyer to truly create their dream home,” said Deborah Kern, a Corcoran broker who is overseeing sales at 737 Park Avenue.
“Currently a white box for someone who wants to customize the plan, the penthouse represents the pinnacle of the luxury market in uptown Manhattan. There is immense demand for large apartments with bespoke finishes, and we’re offering precisely that, but with the flexibility to custom design, a choice that discerning buyers desire but almost never find.”
