The second most expensive home in the US just went up for sale

What you’re looking at here is the second most expensive home in the US.

It could be yours too, because it’s currently for sale.

You’ll have to have deep pockets though because it’s currently listed for $155 million.

There’s no denying that’s an insane amount of money.

But, if you can stump up the cash, you’re getting what’s said to be one of the finest estates in the world.

Sitting on 4.68 acres in the heart of Holmby Hills, it offers complete privacy bordering the Los Angeles Country Club.

It certainly looks the part too because the exterior of the property is entirely clad in limestone.

Called The Manor, it has 56,000 square feet of living space and offers just about every amenity imaginable.

For starters, it boasts 14 bedrooms, should you wish to lay your head somewhere different each night.

Then there’s 27 bathrooms, just in case you fancy a change of scenery. 

Entertaining guests isn’t a problem, as The Manor has its own bowling alley, and a professional screening room.

When it comes to chilling out, there are rolling lawns and rose gardens to explore, as well as a library.

You don’t even have to leave the property to have your hair or makeup done, as it has its very own beauty salon, too.

And if you have the kind of cash required to buy this place, you probably have your own glam squad too.

The listing by Carolwood Real Estate says it’s “a rare opportunity to acquire one of the most important estates ever created”.

But does it deserve to be the second most expensive home in the US?

Social media has weighed in, and people aren’t convinced.

“I’m seeing nothing worth $155 million,” one person said.

“I’m offended by how tiny the pool is for how big the house is,” another said.

One person was more interested in the carpets saying, “I just want to figure out how to vacuum like that”.
