Most expensive home in USA goes on sale

The most expensive house in the USA has gone on sale.

A 40,000 sq ft (3700sq m) mansion in Bel-Air has been listed for NZ$352m.

This is the highest price for a residential property in the United States.

The luxurious Los Angeles home, known as Casa Encantada, sits on eight acres of land and boasts 60 rooms which each have city, ocean or garden views.

It also features a pool house with a screening room and bar, a tennis court, basketball court, Koi ponds and a number of guest houses.

The previously most expensive home was an estate in Holmby Hills, which went for $120m in July.

The most expensive private residence in the world will not be up for sale though. Valued at £1bn, the Queen’s residence of Buckingham Palace has 775 rooms, which includes 52 bedrooms, 19 state rooms, 188 staff rooms and 78 bathrooms.
