The Chartwell Estate currently wears the crown as the most expensive listing on the U.S. open real estate market. Coming in at a whopping $245 million, the limestone mega mansion was the home of American businessman and philanthropist Jerry Perenchio, who passed away from lung cancer in May 2017. The French Neoclassical-style main residence was originally designed by Sumner Spaulding in 1930 and it's interiors were renovated in the late-1980s by renowned designer Henri Samuel.

While interior photos of the massive home are slim, it features approximately 25,000 square feet of living space with 11 bedrooms and 18 bathrooms and a 12,000-bottle wine cellar! With just over 10 acres to play with, exterior features include a gated entrance, 40-car car gallery, tennis court, lush formal gardens with fountains, water features, and sculptures, a 75-foot swimming pool and pool house, and peerless views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean beyond. The property also includes a separate Wallace Neff-designed five-bedroom guest house. This $245 million estate is listed with Jade Mills Estates.
