The One: Breaking Records

Floating above the city and offering 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, downtown Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Mountains, The One a 105,000-square-foot house is a record-breaker. It took a decade to create what is the largest single-family residence ever built. 

Located in Bel Air, One of the Most Expensive and Spectacular Private Residences in the World Is Ready to Be Sold at Auction—and Digitally

Situated on 3.8 acres, The One comprises 21 bedrooms, 42 full bathrooms, and 7 half-bathrooms, as well as impressive resort-like amenities such as a philanthropy wing with a capacity of 200 for charity galas, salon and spa, 10,000-square-foot sky deck, private outdoor running track, private theater with a capacity of 40 people, a 10,000-bottle wine cellar, tennis court, juice bar, and six elevators.

The 30-plus car garage features two car-display turntables while five pools (including the main one with an infinity edge) and several water features define the luxury lifestyle at its finest. 

“The One is created for today’s billionaire seeking a truly unrepeatable asset, and when it sells, it will be the most significant purchase in the world,” says listing agent Aaron Kirman, founder, and president of Aaron Kirman Group and president of the International Estates Division at Compass.

“While in 2021, digital properties like NFTs grabbed headlines for monumental one-of-a-kind sales, 2022 brings us back to the physical world with The One—a real estate property unmatched in size, scale, safety, and triumphant design.”

Listed for $295,000,000 since Jan. 7, the exceptional property is set to auction online from Feb. 7-10.

“The One is simply unrivaled. This property features ultra-luxury amenities beyond any buyer’s wildest dreams,” says one of the other listing agents, Rayni Williams from The Beverly Hills Estates.

“Of California’s many world-class locales, Bel-Air continues to attract some of the world’s biggest stars because of its reputation for the utmost residential privacy, fantastic weather, and relaxed local lifestyle. Even here, The One truly stands in a class of its own,” adds Branden Williams, also from The Beverly Hills Estates.

The spectacle doesn’t stop outside where a sculpture from Italian glass artist Simone Cenedese captivates those who come across it. The interior spaces, too, are a feast for the eyes.

The neutral palette throughout the home highlights the beautiful surrounding landscape, while eye-catching artworks adorn the different interior areas. Among the most interesting pieces is a rotating custom statue by Mike Fields and a butterfly installation by Stephen Wilson, to name only two.

Unique in so many aspects, The One is ready to make history.
