With an asking price of $250 million (nearly P12.5 billion*), a 12-bedroom, 21-bathroom mansion in Los Angeles is officially the most expensive house for sale in America. And it was built "on spec."

Developer Bruce Makowsky conceived of the property, which reportedly took more than 300 people over four years to build. That immense effort starts to make sense when you see the entirety of the 38,000 square feet of pure decadence, including a room dedicated to candy, a James Bond-themed movie theater, a four-lane bowling alley, and a massage room/spa. Plus, it comes with seven full-time staff members whose salaries are covered for two years.

Originally featured by the Hollywood Reporter, the house takes luxury to a new level. If it realizes anywhere close to its asking price, it would set a record (the current record was set in 2014 by a $147 million East Hampton property). Take a tour below.

The 38,000-square-foot, four-level house, located in Bel Air, overlooks Los Angeles.





Here's the Willy Wonka-esque candy room.


It features a $200,000 candy wall with glass foosball tables.

The "auto gallery" comes stocked with $30 million worth of vintage and exclusive cars.


Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Bentleys, and a "baby Formula 1 race car that goes from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds" are included.


The dining room's floating staircase reportedly cost $2 million.


Four tons of stainless steel were required to build it. There are three kitchens in the house, too.



The 40-seat home theater has a James Bond theme.


It features a 22-foot screen, 57 speakers, and 16 subwoofers. The 4K projector is also loaded with 7,000 movies.


But if guests get sick of movies, there's always bowling.


There are four lanes.


And champagne!





Makowsky stocked the homes' two wine cellars himself.


"I live the life," he told the Los Angeles Times.


After all those activities and drinking, guests will need a restorative environment.


The spa room includes his-and-hers massage tables, and one of the seven staffers who comes with the house is a masseuse.


The 85-foot-long infinity pool is another nice place to relax.


It also features a pop-up movie screen.


While the house does come with a helicopter, it's purely a piece of art.

The chopper was featured in the '80s TV show Airwolf.  "It's a "sculpture," Makowsky told the LA Times of the inoperable aircraft.


Who needs to go out to a nightclub when your house has a VIP lounge of its own?




This Seven Dwarfs display is one of 100 art installations in the house.





If it sells for even $100 million less than the asking price, the house will still set a record.


Billionaires, take note. You could own most expensive property ever sold in America.
