The Second Most Expensive Home in Broward Sold for Over $16 Milllion

Two penny-pinching coupon-clippers paid a meager $16.7 milllion for a beachside estate -- a measly $300,001 less than the most expensive home ever sold in Broward County.

James and Jo-Anne Campbell are the thrifty deal-seekers who purchased the budget-friendly fixer-upper on 1093 Hillsboro Mile in Hillsboro Beach, according to property records. And the Sun Sentinel reports the generous, do-gooder real estate dealers who allowed the home to go for under the record is the two-first-name company Mark Timothy Inc.

The Campbells' new home, which would have taken a mere 2015 Bentley Mulsane in the driveway to break the Broward County record, contains 10,384 squarefeet, five bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms (six whole and three halves), and sits along 125 feet of the beach, according to Zillo.

As the Campbells drive their U-haul truck to their new abode, the reigning champ of "Most Expensive Home Ever Sold in Broward" is just a few blocks down the road: The $17 million casa sold at 927 Hillsboro Mile in Hillsboro Beach. That house has seven bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, and 31,844 square feet.

While these homes are rather habitable, they don't have much on the true baller's domain, which is also on Hillsboro Mile, which really should have a fancier-sounding name, such as "Black Bottle Boys Blvd" or something like that. That house, which sits at 935 Hillsboro Mile, has the following features, according to the Sentinel:

Le Palais Royal has 11 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms, 465 feet of beachfront and the first-ever IMAX theater contracted for private use, according to the Coldwell Banker listing firm.

Other features: a 492-foot dock that can accommodate a 185-foot yacht; an underground garage for more than 30 cars; a 4,500-square-foot pool; six waterfalls; and a $2 million marble staircase. The listing includes the lot next door at 939 Hillsboro Mile.

That house is so baller, it actually includes the house next door so you won't have to worry about annoying neighbors wanting to come over asking to watch the next Spiderman movie in your personal IMAX theater.

Now, that's class.
