  • Private underground garage with space for at least 30 cars
  • A 492-foot private dock that can accommodate up to a 185-foot mega yacht

  • The first-ever IMAX Theater contracted for private use
  • Security guard accommodations including air-conditioned kennels for on-site guard dogs

"Le Palais Royal is to be the most expensive listing on the market in America, and was designed to be fit for royalty and the upmost refined individual. It is a true extension of a life well-lived," said William P.D. Pierce, a Coldwell Banker Previews International property specialist. "This grand palace will be a landmark that rivals Europe's greatest palaces. A true masterpiece, it is adorned with custom detailing exclusive to its design and incomparable finishes."
