Los Angeles developer Bruce Makowsky has just what you’re looking for. He’ll even sweeten the deal with a wall full of candy in the gaming centre of his latest creation, just unveiled in the celebrity-strewn neighbourhood of Bel Air.
It comes with a 40-seat home theatre, two fully stocked Champagne/wine cellars, an 85-foot infinity swimming pool flanked by a hydraulic pop-up 18-by-10-foot theatre, and a garage — oops, “auto gallery” — occupied by a dozen cars and 10 motorcycles worth about $ 30 million. A limited-edition Bugatti Veyron and 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540K are among the stars of that show.
For starters, the trophy residence he designed and built on speculation boasts 270-degree views of mountains, ocean and cityscape from its half-hectare perch in the “coveted enclave” popular among the hundreds of new billionaires Makowsky says are popping up every year.
Indoor spectacles include more than 100 art installations curated from around the world, such as the giant stainless-steel Leica camera sculpture by artist Liao Yibai.
The contemporary mega-mansion boasts four levels of indoor and outdoor “nirvana,” according to Makowsky. That means not just all the bells and whistles but enough treats and toys to amuse any sybaritic fun-seeker.
There’s a four-lane bowling alley in a spacious entertainment lounge, decorated with brightly coloured candy dispensers, and the 4K Dolby Atmos theatre provides the ultimate immersive audio experience from its sumptuous leather recliners.
Add to that a tranquil massage studio and wellness spa; 17,000 square feet of integrated entertainment decks; a full-time, trained staff of seven, and you’ve got your own personal utopia that you never need to leave, says Makowsky.
On the business side of things, there’s a penthouse office that looks out onto a helipad with a real, though non-functioning, Bell 222 chopper. It’s the original Airwolf helicopter from the hit TV series of the 1980s, deactivated and customized to serve as an art installation.
