A perk-packed spec house in Los Angeles has landed on the market as this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®. The brand-new build has joined the rarefied air of nine-digit price tags, with its $100 million asking price.
For luxury buyers in search of a place they never need to leave, this property, dubbed UNICA, offers a wide array of amenities that should wipe out any desire to leave the confines of home.
The highlights for fitness buffs go way, way beyond a Peloton in the basement and include a full-sized basketball court, plus a wellness center with a 75-foot indoor lap pool, a sauna, steam room, and gym.
For those in search of more sedentary pleasures, there’s a 1,200-plus bottle wine cellar, a tasting room on the second level, a plush, 36-seat theater, and an auto gallery that can accommodate 20 vehicles.
“This estate has some of the most amazing features I’ve ever seen in a single property,” says listing agent Sally Forster Jones with Compass. “This property is a world-class home that feels like a resort, allowing for residents to do whatever they please from the comfort of their home.”
And when you’re ready to entertain again, you can simply invite everyone to come to your place.
“This property is fit for an array of lifestyles, but specifically someone who enjoys entertaining,” adds Anita Stephan of Compass. “While the basketball court is perfect for an athlete or fitness enthusiast, it can easily be transformed into an amazing ballroom for events.”
Developed by Ty Cueva, along with Dean Hallo of Hallo Construction, the super-luxe abode is set on 1.35 acres atop the exclusive Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Encompassing 41,000 square feet, the Spanish-style villa features eight bedrooms and 21 baths. The drama begins at the entrance, with a 30-foot high waterfall.
You enter into a high-ceilinged, open-plan layout, including living and dining spaces and a kitchen equipped with a custom, petrified-wood center island.
The interior includes floor-to-ceiling glass pocket doors, which open out to the landscaped grounds. For cozy nights in, there are eight bars and six fireplaces.
On the top floor, you’ll find the home’s two master suites, as well as guest bedrooms. The deluxe main master features dual baths, a fireplace, and a private balcony.
Additional amenities include an elevator, recording studio, staff living quarters, service kitchen, private security room, and top-of-the-line smart home systems, including Circadian rhythm lighting and Samsung wall video boards.
Outside, the resortlike yard features multilevel patio spaces for dining and lounging, a 75-foot infinity-edge pool and spa, a weatherproof Samsung wall video board, and an outdoor kitchen.
