Wanna Live Like a Hillbilly?
For a measly $350 million you can live like Jed Clampett in Beverly Hills. Swim in the concrete pond and cook grits in the massive restaurant chef-style kitchen!
It’s one of the most famous houses in America, and was the home used in the filming of the old Beverly Hillbillies TV show. The home was built in 1933, and according to Zillow it’s over 21,000 square feet with 10 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. It sits on 10.3 acres of prime real estate on Bel Air Road in Beverly Hills.
According to Bloombergquint.com it’s currently the most expensive home for sale in the United States. Now, let’s say you do have an extra $350 million and you wanna go for it. Well, the mansion and the grounds might be yours, but any home owner will tell you, that’s just the beginning. The property tax in 2016 was $347,475. The tax assessment in 2016 was $28,950,368, an increase of 1.5% over the previous year.
Then of course you have upkeep costs, utility bills, water bills, and so on. Zillow is also suggesting that some updates and upgrades may need to be done.
Still, if you DO win the Powerball or the Mega Millions and decide this is the place for you, here’s a video of what the home looks like. The Kirkeby Mansion A.K.A. The Beverly Hillbillies Mansion.
