“The One” 944 Airole Way, Bel-Air, CA
LP $295,000,000 | 21 bd | 49 ba | 105,000 sqft Architect: Paul McClean
If you are in the real estate business, you are most likely aware of the home coined “The One”. Bought by real estate developer Nile Niami back in 2012, this home took just shy of 10 years to complete. Although the home is being sold as incomplete, it can still be considered move-in ready. With the hopes of a whopping $500,000,000 list price, Niami had high hopes of this development. Despite some funding issues, the home was finally auctioned off in 2022 for $126,000,000 to online clothing company, Fashion Nova founder Richard Saghian. This massive compound boasts a total of 21 bedrooms and 49 bathrooms, five pools, a 30-car garage, a beauty salon, and a 40-seat theater. “The One” is considered to be the largest home in the United States and sets the bar for properties of this magnitude.
