A Jamaican has gotten the global real estate world talking after listing what is to be the most expensive palace on the US market for a whopping US$139 million dollars.
According to a report by the Observer, Le Palais Royal is currently the most expensive property of its type listed for sale in the United States. And the 60,000-square-foot, French-inspired “Braux Arts masterpiece” is being presented by Jamaican William P D Pierce, of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Florida.
Pierce, who, after a casual conversation some time ago with US real estate tycoon Donald Trump, switched from selling motor cars to luxury homes – selling a whopping 19 condos in one day – listed the property last Thursday night and set the real estate world from Florida to Europe buzzing with excitement.
Le Palais Royal, inspired by a palace in France, boasts a 492-foot private dock that can accommodate a 185 foot mega yacht and an underground garage with parking for over 30 cars. Currently in the final phase of construction and slated for completion before the end of 2015, the price tag includes the finishing, the agents Coldwell Banker reported.
This royal palace also features a 4,500-square-foot infinity edge pool with a 12-foot cascading waterfall, double loop LED-lit waterslide, fire pit and swim-up bar for outdoor entertaining.
The oceanfront palace features 11 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms, and the first-ever IMAX Theatre contracted for private use, featuring a 50 by 27-foot screen and seating for 18 with a bar and IMAX lounge.
The home is currently under construction and expected to be completed before the end of 2015.
