Odeon Condo Complex in Monico, Most Expensive Complex In The World

 Tour Odeon in Monaco will  be the world’s most expensive condo.Tour Odeon, a twin high-rise condo project  will set a new world record penthouse sales price when their 5-story penthouse sells for an estimated $400 million plus price tag. When sold, it will easily eclipse the current world-record penthouse sales price of $237 million recorded earlier this year in London’s One Hyde Park.

While the developer did confirm to World Property Channel the penthouse is now actively on the market and available for purchase, they would not confirm the price. But based on the recent uber-luxe penthouse sale in London’s One Hyde Park at less than half its size in terms of square footage (16,000 square feet) for $237 million, a $400 million to $450 million price point is possible for Monaco’s 35,500 square foot penthouse. According to Groupe Marzocco, condo sales have continued to be strong in Monaco’s newest and tallest residential skyscraper.

Donald Trump Buys Golf Resort In Ireland in County Clare.

Donald Trump Buys Doonbeg Golf Club in Ireland for undisclosed price.

Doonbeg Golf Course Purchased by Donald Trump

Doonbeg Golf Course Purchased by Donald Trump

U.S. billionaire Donald Trump has purchased a golf resort in County Clare, Ireland, marking the first Trump Hotel Collection property in Ireland. The property mogul’s organization completed the purchase of the oceanfront Doonbeg Golf Club, which is the 16th golf club in the Trump portfolio, according to a company announcement. The purchase price for the golf club was not announced. It will be renamed Trump International Golf Links, Ireland. The golf club covers more than 400 acres and includes an 18-hole golf course. The resort includes 218 hotel suites, a spa and several restaurants, which will be managed by the Trump Hotel Collection. The Irish location is the fourth addition in less than a year following the Trump International Hotel, The Old Post Office, Washington, D.C., Trump International Hotel & Tower Vancouver and Trump Hotel Rio de Janeiro, according to the announcement. According to the BBC, Mr. Trump made the purchase in Ireland after a Scottish judge rejected his legal claim against a wind energy project off the Aberdeenshire coast. He states the project would spoil the view from his luxury golf course there. Lawyers for Donald Trump began arguing the case last November. “We will appeal this decision, and in the meantime we will be focusing all of our investment and energy towards our new acquisition on the Atlantic Ocean in Ireland,” Mr. Trump said from New York.  – See more at: http://www.worldpropertychannel.com/

 Greewich Connecticut Has a Secluded Compound On The Market for $190 Million

Would You Pay $190 For An Isolated Compound in Greenwich Called Beech Farm?

Copper BeachCompound  in Greenwich on the market for $190 Million

Copper BeachCompound in Greenwich on the market for 190 Million

A grand estate in Greenwich, Connecticut known as Copper Beech Farm is on the market for $190 million, which would make it the most expensive home in the United States.

The current owner is timber magnate John Rudey, who reportedly purchased the property 31 years ago. The Victorian mansion was built in 1898 and was once owned by Harriet Lauder Greenway, the daughter of industrialist George Lauder who helped found U.S. Steel.

It is the first time the property has been publicly listed since 1904, according to the listing.

“This extraordinary Great Estate has no peers in Greenwich… there simply are no more in existence,” attempting to justify the price tag.

The 50.6-acre estate sits 40 feet above water and includes two undeveloped islands and about a mile of private shoreline in Greenwich’s exclusive Mead Point area. The 13,519-square-foot house features 12-bedrooms and 7-full bathrooms. Special touches include rooms with 12-foot ceilings, a marble bathroom, solarium and two oval bedrooms.

The Colonial estate also features a 75-foot pool, grass tennis court, greenhouses, six garages and a “stone carriage house complete with a clock tower, and a large upstairs with lovely water views has ample garage space for cars and farm equipment, plus the milking stalls from its original days,” according to the listing.

But the house has some quirks. The main kitchen is still in the basement with the staff quarters. And there are still old “speaking tubes” from pre-electricity days in the rooms, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The question now is whether Mr. Rudey will get the asking price.

Robin Williams Lists Napa Valley Estate for $29 Million.

Napa Valley Hosts Some Huge Celebrity Compounds for Celebrities Like Robin Williams.

Hollywood comedian Robin Williams is interested in selling his massive Napa Valley estate, Villa Sorriso. The villa is on 653 acres and includes a 20,000-square-foot main house; solar farm; and 18 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes.470_2601390

Villa Sorriso is built atop the Mayacama Mountains, which separate the Napa and Sonoma valleys. The five-bedroom, 12-bathroom Italian villa was designed by David Gast & Associates and is faced with Portuguese limestone. The interior features formal living and dining rooms, a gourmet eat-in kitchen, and numerous temperature-controlled vaults for both wine and art storage. The kitchen is understated yet elegant, with stainless steel appliances surrounded by marble and butcher block counters. The living room is simple yet elegant, including a terrace with views of the estate.cover

No actor’s house would be complete without a state-of-the-art movie theater. The house also features five luxurious bedroom suites, each ornately adorned with contemporary trappings. Each bedroom has its own en suite bathroom and jaw-dropping views from every window.

In addition to 20,000 feet of interior living space, the grounds are truly the spectacle of the property. Steps from the master suite is a 65-foot, infinity-edge swimming pool surrounded by antique stonework and a multitiered sculpture garden, perfect for entertaining. Tennis courts, hiking trails, and a private lake complete with rowboat highlight the variety of different outdoor activities on the estate.

No Napa estate would be complete without acres upon acres of vineyards. Located within the Mount Veeder Appellation, Villa Sorriso produces several tons of usable grapes every year. The grapes are currently purchased and aged by award-winning vintner Robert Craig, who produces Cabernets “highly prized for deep, black mountain fruit; cassis; dark chocolate; and hints of violets, mint, and spice.”

In addition to vineyards, more than 100 olive trees dot the property, producing several dozen gallons of gourmet olive oil every season. The property also includes a seven-stall barn and tack room with room for several dozen livestock. The property is bounded by Sugarloaf Ridge State Park and breathtaking views in every direction. Villa Sorriso comes with its own onsite property manager, allowing the new occupants to merely enjoy the surroundings without worrying about maintenance.

The home was originally listed in August with a price of $35 million, though it was recently reduced to $29.9 million. Williams might no longer be interested in living at Villa Sorriso, but it remains a gem in the heart of California wine country.

America’s $100 Million Dollar Homes For Sale or Sold

Uber Expensive Homes over $100 Million Dollars For Sale In America

Once the daydream of fantasy-prone sellers, the $100 million house is becoming, well, not commonplace maybe, but not so rare.”I’m at the point where I’m calling this a new category of housing,” says Jonathan Miller, chief executive of New York real estate appraisal firm Miller Samuel, Inc.”It is something that’s come of age in the past two years in response to global economic turmoil, where wealthy individuals are looking for ways to invest, and ultra-high-end real estate seems to be the asset of choice.”

Further Lane de Menil

Two U.S. homes have broken past the $100 million threshold since the real estate downturn: a $100 million château in Los Altos Hills, Calif. that changed hands in 2011, and a hilltop estate in nearby Woodside, which quietly went for a staggering $117.5 million in November. Eight more listed with asking prices of $95 million and above are on the sale block, while several others, like financier Gary Winnick’s Bel Air manse, Casa Encantada (reportedly available for $225 million), are supposedly being shopped around as unofficial “pocket” listings.

What makes a home into a $100 million treasure chest? The iron rule of real estate comes into play, of course: A location in one of America’s most expensive Zip codes. In Manhattan that means a palatial spread in one of the most exclusive white-glove buildings bordering Central Park, like the Pierre Hotel, where the triplex penthouse co-op is listed for $125 million. In Los Angeles it means a coveted address on one of the guard-gated streets of the Platinum Triangle (Holmby Hills, Bel Air and Beverly Hills).

A prime piece of land is necessary, particularly in an area where abundant acreage is hard to come by, like the expansive 47-acre De Guigne estate in Silicon Valley’s Hillsborough. Offered at $ 100 million, it’s remained in the same family for the better part of 150 years. In the ritzy Mayflower Estates enclave of Dallas, Tex., where land commands $2 million an acre, the 25-acre Crespi-Hicks estate, designed by architect Maurice Fatio, can be yours for $135 million.

 

The homes themselves typically span 10,000 square feet-plus and pack in the kind of amenities produced when expansive imaginations meet bottomlessly deep pockets. Los Angeles’ $125 million Fleur de Lys manse boasts a 200-guest ballroom, a 50-seat home theater and a three-quarter-mile jogging track. Nearby, the Beverly House, once home to William Randolph Hearst, offers over 50,000 square feet of living space that includes two screening rooms, an art deco-themed private nightclub, spa facilities and a lighted tennis court with accompanying indoor bar. The Beverly Hills compound’s asking price, formerly at $95 million, was recently hiked to $115 million.

Equally important is the ownership lineage. A home tied to an esteemed public figure can offer unique bragging rights, even when the connection isn’t a happy one, as with Casa Casuarina, the $100 million Miami Beach mansion where Gianni Versace was murdered on the front steps.

“Homes of the trophy market aren’t simply defined by their price; they are unique properties that attract global interest,” adds Miller. As the number of billionaires in the world grows, so too does the possibility of more record-breaking real estate.”We will see more $100 million-plus sales in the coming years.”

Here is a gallery of America’s $100 Million Dollar Homes and who owns them.
