Thinking about moving down south for the winter? You could do worse than a place in sunny Florida, and as luck would have it, a residence just opened up. It's Playa Vista Isle, located in the area known as "Millionaires Mile" in Hillsboro Beach, Florida, set to hit the auction block next month, and since it's being sold at no reserve (no minimum bid or reserve price), it's possible that it will go for well under its reported $159 million value.
CNBC reports that at that price, Playa Vista Isle is among the very most expensive homes in the United States, and last year Forbes listed it as one of only 17 homes with an asking price exceeding $100 million.
Playa Vista Isle was finally completed only this year, and its 60,000 square feet has room for 11 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, and a 20-car garage, all with detailing and architectural elements inspired by the famous Palace of Versailles. Mayi de la Vega is the founder of ONE Sotheby's, one of the auction houses participating in the sale of the property, and she had this to say about its design:
"The thought and attention to detail that has been put into every inch of Playa Vista Isle amazes me every time I see it. The difficulty of replicating this project is one of the many reasons why it's so unique. It's incredibly grand on every scale."
There's also, naturally, an infinity pool, itself 4,500 square feet, and six (!!) waterfalls. A wine cellar with individually climate-controlled room for 3,000 bottles has state-of-the-art biometric security features as well as an adjacent tasting room. You're probably used to huge mansions like this having elaborate home theater systems, but Playa Vista Isle manages to distinguish it self there as well, with the world's first private IMAX home theater.
Playa Vista Isle isn't literally an isle, but it does come with 500 feet of oceanfront beach, and two deep-water docks for your yachts, so you're covered should you want (or need) to make any quick ocean getaways. Digital bidding on the mansion begins on November 12th, and in-person bidding commences three days after that. You can take a closer look at the property in the video below:
