This megamansion at 944 Airole Way in Bel Air is referred to as the “Space Station”, the most expensive home in America, but is best known as “The One”. The Bel Air home has been 10 years in the making, and was built by a film producer-turned-real estate developer Nile Niami.
Inside the Most Expensive Home in America
The home has 21 bedrooms, 42 bathrooms, 30-car garage, 10,000 square foot wine cellar, 10,000 square foot sky deck, 40-person movie theater, private nightclub, putting green, salon, bowling alley, and much more. Nile listed the home for sell for $295,000,000 in January 2022, but as of February 7th, the home will go to auction and sold to the highest bidder. The One is truly one-of-a-kind, not only for being the most expensive in America, but especially since local laws have changed to prevent the building supersized homes ever again.
