This impressive and palace sized mega-mansion is located at 11177 Eagle View Drive in Sandy, UT. This has to be one of my favorite homes posted on my website. The mansion, dubbed Villa Bellissima, is owned by James Jensen who owns St. James Energy. The home was designed by Beech Walker Architects and consists of 32,000 square feet of pure luxury. The home has is surrounded by a beautiful wrought iron gate and has amazing views of the mountains. It is located on 4.5 acres of land and cost a reported $6,750,000 to build. I would love to see interior photos of this home. If anyone knows where I could get some, please email me.

This mega-mansion is located on Oakhill Drive in Holladay, UT. The home has been cited to have between 28,000 and 35,000 square feet. It is owned by insurance magnate Ronald Gunnell. He put the house on the market for $29 million back in 2005 and later lowered it to a still wallet crunching $19 million. His family and him found the house to be too big and wanted to downsize to a more “modest” 10,000 square feet. The mansion is situated on an expansive 22 acres and includes 5 bedrooms, a two-story library, a game room, a home theater, a pond, a tennis court, and a swimming pool.

    Sorry, hate to be contrary, but these houses seem vulgar and of no achitectural merit. I just discovered this site and am impressed with it’s scope. I would, however, appreciate seeing real mansions by true artists shown rather than these monstrosities. Believe me these piles will never stand the test of time and just be nostalgic reminders that we lived in a time where money ‘Trumped’ taste.

    I detest seeing huge mansions surrounded by smaller houses, it’s trivial “look at me” syndrome. Build your mansion around other mansions or somewhere away from other people.

      I actually live up in this neighborhood, and all of the houses up where this one is are almost just as big. Most houses are 10,000 plus. And this one when it was built was actually quite far away from everyone. It was the highest house on the mountain at the time. Now there is a fairly large house right above it.

    I agree with others about the lack of architectural merit here. It actually quite disgusts me that some people think they need a house the huge. Or is it worse that they make everyone else want one too?

      I’m not sure if I would take advice or criticism from someone who can not make grammatically correct sentences.

    Villa Bellissima is also one of my favorite mansions.The exterior is pure perfection.

    “His family and him found the house to be too big and wanted to downsize to a more “modest” 10,000 square feet. ”

    It’s definitely unacceptable to hear such stupid things from rich people.They found the house so big???And so uncomfortable I guess…I understand the logic of the excuse , but I can’t understand why somebody want to build a huge mansion and afterwards find it too big…ONLY PERSONS WHO TRULY WANT TO LIVE IN SUCH HUGE HOMES AND KNOW THE REASONS OF THIS ACTION SHOULD BUILD THESE KIND OF HOMES.After all, there are so many ultra rich people who prefer to reside in relatively small houses despite the fact that they are top billionaires (Paul Allen, Warren Buffet etc…).Nobody imposes you to live in a huge home.

    Instead of build such huge mansions make a donation or a charity.Out there you will see people who really need any kind of help…
