Gaudy "Palace" in Hillsboro Beach Available for $139 Million -- the Most Expensive Real Estate Listing in America

Le Palais Royal is a gaudy 60,000-plus-square-foot "palace" that will cast a garish shadow all across Hillsboro Beach with its supreme palatialness when it's done being built by 2015.

The home, which is inspired by the Palace of Versailles, boasts 11 bedrooms, 17 baths, a 4,500-square-foot pool with waterslide, a glass-bottom Jacuzzi, a putting green, and an underground 30-car garage. It also has the world's first IMAX home theater, with 18 seats.

At a listing price of $139 million, it is officially the most expensive home for sale in the United States.

Though the listing agent did not want to disclose the owner's name, public records link it to Robert Pereira -- a construction company owner and former strip club owner who has made the news for giving Sheriff Scott Israel rides on his yacht.
