On Florida's Atlantic coast, half way between Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton, four acres of beachfront land surround the most expensive home in the country, Le Palais Royal. Located on a strip known as "Millionaire's Mile," Le Palais Royal is, indeed, an American palace. Represented by William PD Pierce's Perfect Property Purchases, and as their website tells us, this $159 million listing offers a lifestyle few even dare to dream of; the 11 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms are just the beginning. Imagine this: you're driving down Hillsboro Mile, Florida road A1A, with a beach on one side of your car and the intercoastal waterway on the other. Pull up to the 13-foot wrought-iron gate embellished with 22-karat gold-leafing, and as it opens, drive past a 26-foot three-tiered fountain and Versaille-style waterfalls to the garage door. Pull into the garage, and travel down, below the house, to the underground area large enough to store 30 different cars. Park, and walk into your own private beachfront palace, a true masterpiece of French-inspired grandeur. There are six waterfalls throughout and a 4,500 square foot infinity pool, a waterslide and swim-up bar, and yacht dockage for your private vessel. The entryway features a marble and 22-karat gold staircase, which alone took two years to construct. Opulent details flow throughout, and it's the only home in the United States to have a privately-licensed IMAX theater, which is capable of seating 18 guests.
