Back in January of last year, an obscenely opulent mansion in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles made headlines for its $250 million price tag. At the time, it was the most expensive home in the country. Fast forward to now and this mega-mansion has now been reduced in price to some pocket change: $188 million.

“It just reeks of quality and looks absolutely spectacular,” developer Bruce Makowsky told Bloomberg back in January 2017. “It gives you the feeling you can only get if you go to heaven.” As The Fresh Toast reported at the time:

The home’s art also reeks. The decorations include a chainsaw with its blade replaced with Rolls Royce hood ornaments, an onyx stone sculpture of an Hermès Birkin handbag, giant photos of Cher, jewel-encrusted guitars, a giant shiny replica of a Leica camera. There’s also something called a “champagne pinball machine,” a chrome-plated machine gun, and an entire wall covered with candy dispensers.

Lucky for the buyer, the home comes furnished.

“I just believe that if you build the very best, there will be a buyer,” Makowsky said, adding, “I understand how rich people want to live, because I’m very wealthy. The right person is going to walk into this house and lose their mind.”

As Business Insider reports:

As for the living spaces, there are two master suites, 10 “oversized VIP” suites for guests, 21 bathrooms, three separate and fully equipped kitchens, and no fewer than five bars.

Makowsky is the same guy responsible for the $70 million Beverly Hills house sold to Minecraft founder Markus “Notch” Persson in 2014, according to BI.

Here’s a virtual tour of the home.
