The most expensive house ever bought 105,000 sq ft California mansion in the hills of Belair According to reports, that electricity bill can reach up to $50,000 a month.
Known as “The One,” the $141 million home is considered the nation’s largest modern home and has needed a significant amount of water to cool off during the intense heatwave that has hit Southern California in recent weeks. Requires a large amount of energy.
Lawrence Castillo, president of air conditioning company Brody Pennell, told the Los Angeles Times Electricity bills for a home at full capacity are said to be about $50,000.
Castillo is a mega Mansion at Airole Way 944 Pantry, bowling alley, movie theater, candy room, 4,000 square foot guesthouse, sky deck with cabanas, nightclub, full service beauty salon and spa.
In total, the residence has 21 bedrooms and 42 full bathrooms.
According to the LA Times, the court-appointed trustee tasked with finding a buyer for the home estimates the monthly electricity bill at $27,000. At that time, only his first floor of the house had air conditioning.
Castillo told the LA Times he estimates that a home the size of “The One” would require about 50 HVAC systems.
“Theoretically, a 100,000-square-foot home has the same utility bills as 40 2,500-square-foot homes,” he said.
“That’s the equivalent of a two-street block to cool one property.”
Not only do homeowners have to consider air conditioning, but they also have the energy needed to power various appliances and machines, such as pool filters and pumps, fountains, elevators, refrigerators, and more.
California is coming out of a blistering summer with a brutal heat wave, and the state government has urged residents to stay off their electricity for fear of running out of power grids.
California Governor Gavin Newsom posted on Twitter earlier this month urging residents to “conserve energy” while wearing fleece coats in what appeared to be air-conditioned rooms — encourage accusations of hypocrisy.
“Our energy grid is maxed out. The risk of outages is real. After 4pm today, everyone needs to double down to save energy,” Newsom said. said.
In March, Richard Sagian, founder of retail firm Fashion Nova, made a $141 million bid for the home, which was approved by a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge.
Saghian got the house for half the list price of $295 million.
