In 2014, Florida's Le Palais Royal, a 60,000-square-foot mansion with 465 feet of oceanfront land, was listed for $139 million. At the time, it was the most expensive house in the United States.

 

In 2015, the listing was updated, asking for $159 million. This French-inspired luxury real-estate in Hillboro Beach, not far from Ft. Lauderdale, has since been surpassed by a 82,000-square-foot mansion in the Boca Raton area, listed at $165 million.

 

The $159 million price for the mega mansion, Le Palais Royal, included the cost of new additions on a lot adjacent to the property, which the listing refers to as "phase two" of the construction. Phase Two includes some awesome features like a go-kart track, a nightclub, bowling alley, and even an underground party zone with an ice-skating rink!

 

It is currently owned by construction mogul Robert Pereira, who had originally planned to live in the residence, but changed his mind, according to The Wall Street Journal.

According to Wikipedia.com, there are three master suites and a presidential suite, each with its own Jacuzzi in a windowed circular rotunda (the presidential suite also has a private plunge pool). Outside, there is a 4,500-square-foot infinity pool with salt, chlorine and UV filtering as well as an LED-lit, double-loop waterslide. Suspended above the pool is a glass-bottomed Jacuzzi.

 

“The property has taken so long to be completed because they kept improving the quality and continue to raise the bar at each construction milestone. It's being built like a crown jewel,” says listing agent Mayi De La Vega of One Sotheby's International Realty.


 

Instead, it's a 60,000-square-foot, 4-acre compound along 465 feet of oceanfront in Hillsboro Beach, Florida. This particular stretch of beachfront housing is known by locals as "Millionaires Mile."

Construction on the main home finished in 2015. It sat on the market as an unfinished project for a year.

The increased cost of the property can be attributed to the addition of "phase two" on an adjacent property to the west.

The home's South African marble floors were insulated specifically so the clacking of high heels will be muted.

According to the listing, the marble used in the home was specially designed to reduce to noise of solid-bottom shoes and high-heels.

There's a putting green outside, as well as a dock big enough to hold a 200-foot yacht. Six water features surround the property, including a 24-foot fountain, a 4,500-square-foot infinity pool, and an adjoining 12-foot waterfall.
