Square Footage: 60,500 (main house)

Bedrooms & Bathrooms: 11 bedrooms & 17 bathrooms (main house)

Dubbed “Le Palais Royal”, this Versailles-inspired Beaux Arts style waterfront mega mansion is located at 935 Hillsboro Mile in Hillsboro Beach, FL.

It was fist listed last year with a price tag of $139 million. Well, the main house is now finished and the owner is planning to build 2 guest houses and an underground entertainment complex, which will be completed in 2 years; thus the higher price tag.

Each of the 2 guest houses will be approximately 3,000 square feet and will share a swimming pool. The underground entertainment complex will feature a nightclub, 2-lane bowling alley, ice-skating rink and a go-kart track.

The main house was designed by Randall Stofft Architects and features approximately 60,500 square feet of ultra luxurious living space with 11 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms, $2 million double marble staircase, 18-seat IMAX home theater, 30-car subterranean garage and more. Outdoor features include a 26 foot tall 3-tier fountain, plunge pool, putting green and a 4,500 square foot infinity-edge pool w/LED lit double loop slide.

    Upgrading a previously $139 million property, apparently on spec, doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Ditto for building an underground go-kart track in the basement that is so small that a 6-year old would quickly tire of it. This is FL, land of eternal sunshine, or whatever. It would have made more sense to lease land from Pompano Beach Airpark and build something usable, even though not in, or under, the property. At least it would be usable, interesting and challenging, but I guess they were shooting for unique and idiotic.

    For a $20,000,000 premium those guest houses had better be something special. The proposed basement rec room sure doesn’t warrant the added cost.

    Considering I drive by this on a daily basis, I’ve been curious what they were planning for the lot next door. Now I know. With that said, a home of this size and quality really is only suitable for Palm Beach and maybe one or two neighborhoods in the Miami area. But this is essentially Pompano Beach. Completely overbuilt for the area. A white elephant that will be lucky to recoup half of its supposed cost to build. Given the choice, I’d much prefer Al Malnik’s manison in Ocean Ridge (which this home clearly took inspiration from). Or you could probably knock on Sydell Miller’s door/gate and get an incredible home in an appropriate location for the same price.

    Before I spend $159 million on somebody else’s idea of a dream house, I’d like to explore my own ideas with a few architects and builders, and see just what a mere $100 million might buy. I might be very happy with that, and keeping $59 million in my pocket might make me even happier.

    This mansion has everything, but for some reason I don’t find it desirable. It’s just… too much. Too much white, too much space… it looks “expensive” but it’s not beautiful. In other words, it has no soul.

    This house looks awful, it has no character, not innovation and the design just doesn’t work.

    ‘Le Palais Royale’: *cringe*. Sounds like the kind of person who would ruin his Rolls Royce Phantom with 22in gold diamond-encrusted wheels and a spoiler.
