The most expensive home in the U.S. is on the market-- for 139 million dollars!

Inspired by the Palace of Versailles, the Palais Royal was built on the oceanfront in Hillsboro Beach, Florida near Fort Lauderdale.

There's a two million dollar staircase case with a steel-iron and gold leaf railing.

It's 60-thousand square feet with eleven bedrooms, seventeen bathrooms, and a garage for thirty cars.

It includes a pool and a private beachfront.

The home has been under construction since 2009 and is expected to completed by the end of 2015.

According to public records, the property is owned in a trust tied to Robert Pereira, the founder of Middlesex Corp., a Massachusetts-based construction company that also has offices in Florida.  The owner is reportedly selling the mansion because he just finished building a yacht and wants to spend more time traveling.
