The World’s Largest —
and America’s Priciest
— Home Is Ready for Its
Written By: Karine Monié
After nearly a decade of design and development work, what is being billed as “the world’s most expensive home” is finally ready for its close-up. Set on a five-acre parcel in the posh Los Angeles enclave of Bel Air—and aptly named The One—the 105,000-square-foot property’s interiors have remained a closely guarded secret. Until now. Beyond the eye-catching design are the home’s equally jaw-dropping stats. There are 42 bathrooms,
21 bedrooms, a 5,500-square-foot master suite, a 30-car garage gallery with two car-display turntables, a four-lane bowling alley, a spa level, a 30-seat movie theater, a “philanthropy wing (with a capacity of 200) for charity galas with floating pods overlooking Los Angeles, a 10,000-square-foot sky deck, and five swimming pools.
TOOLBOX TIP: SCISSOR LIFT SAFETY Do Your Safety Part:
There are various ways to suffer slips and falls while
working. You can slip and lose your balance, trip over objects left improperly in a walkway or fall
from a ladder or scaffolding. To avoid these mishaps, be on the lookout
• Water puddles
• Worksite materials
• Grease or oil
• Extension cords and cables
When entering a building from the outdoors or from debris areas, clean your footwear thoroughly.
Snowy and rainy weather require a doormat at each entrance to allow for complete wiping of
shoes. Beware of tripping hazards—trash, unused materials or any object left in walkways invites
falls. Extension cords, tools, carts and other items should be removed or properly barricaded
off. If equipment or supplies are left in walkways, report it. Let the proper personnel remove it.
And keep passageways clean of debris by using trash barrels and recycling bins. Slips and falls
occur every day. The extent of injuries and their recurrence can be minimized through proper
safety knowledge, good housekeeping and practicing prevention.
