LA mansion headed to auction block is America’s most expensive home
The $295 million, 21-bed, 42-bath Bel-Air mega-mansion features a 30-car garage and five swimming pools
Los Angeles lifestyle is known for the rich and the famous but one hilltop property in Bel-Air is flaunting luxury at a whole new level.
The $295 million mega-mansion, dubbed "The One," was built by ex-movie producer Nile Niami as the nation’s largest and most expensive private residence. The 105,000 square-foot estate is expected to hit the auction block at the end of February.
The 21-bedroom, 42-bathroom home features a 30-car garage, 10,000 bottle wine cellar, five swimming pools and a 10,000-square foot sky deck -- not to mention the property is completely surrounded by a moat in palace-like fashion.

While the buyers of this house could be footing a $3.7 million bill in property taxes alone, California listing agents have reported an influx in buyers still interested in ultra-expensive properties.
