A $75,000,000 Home


How much home can you get for $75 million bucks?

A lot.

Ocean front, 22,000 square feet (main home). 8 bedrooms, 10 full baths, 5 half baths and a 16 car garage.

And just a few other amenities.

The video is long (8 minutes), but worth a watch as the home is pretty spectacular / extravagant / ridiculous.  The video is well done, though if I were the seller I’d be a bit annoyed that both the video voice-over and the flyer say the bowling alley is only two lanes when clearly it is four.

The name of the estate is “Portabello” – Italian for “Beautiful Door”. According to the web site “the name itself promises beauty”. Huh, first thing I thought of was a mushroom.

Looks to have been listed in May 2006. A published interview with the architect in Jan 2008 shows it still hasn’t sold.

We always appreciate your comments! Phoenix Real Estate Guy uses two commenting systems, Facebook and LiveFyre. LiveFyre is the most robust system (and easy to use!). It allows you to login with Twitter, Facebook, Google+ LinkedIn, OpenId, LiveFyre and as a "Guest". I recommend getting a LiveFyre account, it has some great features (just click the LiveFyre button when you write your comment).


BLOG COMMENT POLICY: We respectfully ask that you use your real name (first name only is fine) and not use keywords (Why no keywords?). The only real "comment rules" are be civil -- no personal attacks -- and no advertising. (See the full comment policy here). Opinion and debate are welcome, but attack the idea, not the person.
