Construction tycoon Robert Pereira’s 60,500-square feet Florida mega-mansion went back on the market this week because he apparently changed his mind about wanting to live there, an article in The Guardian said.
The asking price of $159m makes it the most expensive private listing in the country. The lucky buyer of the 4.4 acre Hillsboro Beach estate, if there ever is one, will become the proud owner of an on-site nightclub, ice-skating rink, bowling alley, go-kart circuit and private Imax cinema alongside the cavernous residence.
What’s noteworthy is the story that goes behind the building of the home. The article in The Guardian tells the story of a family whose extreme wealth and extravagance seems to constantly be leading them on to the next best thing.
“No corner was cut, nothing was too expensive. They wanted the very best of everything and really thought it through. You feel the quality when you walk through the property, the craftsmanship and attention, it’s all there,” said Mayi de la Vega, the Miami real-estate agent handling the sale.
