Let’s take a tour of the $159 million Hillsboro mansion, the most extravagant thing in Florida
Modeled after the Palace of Versailles in France, this 60,500-square-foot house in Hillsboro Beach, Florida, is returning to market with an asking price of $159 million.
The Le Palais Royal, as it's called, went on the market in September of 2014 for $139 million, and was removed by the owner until the project was closer to competition. Now, it seems the mega mansion is back with even more bells and whistles.
The mansion, which sits on 4 1/2 acres between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, comes with a 4,500-square-foot infinity pool, which has a swim-up bar, a water slide and a glass-bottomed hot tub. The grounds also include a putting green, an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, 2 guest houses (3,000 square feet each) that are connected by an underground entertainment complex, complete with an ice-skating rink, a go-kart track, a nightclub and a bowling alley.
Inside the main house, you'll find $3 million worth of gold leaf, 6 waterfalls, a $2 million marble staircase, 11 bedrooms, a master suite with a heated plunge pool on the balcony, an 18 seat IMAX theater, a 30-car subterranean garage, a wine cellar with room for about 3,000 bottles and, last but not least, a 1,300-gallon aquarium.
The grounds also include two boat docks on the Intracoastal, which are both capable of docking a 2,000 ft yacht.
The property is owned by Robert Pereira, the founder of Middlesex Corp., and is expected to be completed by the first quarter of next year, reports The Washington Post.
