Let's face it when looking at real estate for sale for that perfect home we all wonder what we could get if money wasn't an issue. Ooohing and AAhhing at all the spectacular homes there are out there is fun and entertaining. Well, earlier this year Forbes put out a list in conjunction with Trulia of The Most Expensive Homes in the US are. If you're curious and want to look at the whole list you can follow the link here, but we've summed up some of the most interesting on it--as well as the local winner--for your enjoyment.
The #1 Most Expensive Home (For Sale)--also boasting the MOST Square Footage in the US is:
This Oregon ranch style home has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2,244 square feet of living space sitting on 7,500 acres of EFU Land. I guess it's a safe bet that you're paying for all that farm land with this one.
The House with the LEAST Acreage of the Most Expensive Homes in the US is:
John Gutfreund's ("The King of Wall Street") duplex in Manhattan's Upper East Side has 7 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and 12,000 square feet at one of the most prestigious addresses in New York City on virtually no acreage.
Now here's what you've been waiting for: Where does North Carolina fall on this list??
This French chateau (also) located in Asheville topped the list for North Carolina's Most Expensive house (for sale) until July 2016. This 3 story home boasts 5 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, 3 half bathrooms, and 16,221 square feet on 2 acres.
This 7,934 square foot home sits on 3.15 acres and features 7 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, and 3 half bathrooms. Sitting right on Fontana Lake it's the ideal lake house.
Hopefully you enjoyed that fun run down of the Most Expensive Homes that America has to offer. While many (if not all) of us would LOVE to own any of the homes featured they're probably a little out of our price range. It's always fun to look though!

"When I returned from California in 2012, one of the primary goals I established was to buy a house. What has been a dream for 4 years finally became a reality today when I closed on a house which not only fits my budget but also suits my personality and idiosyncrasies perfectly. It's essentially a cabin deep in the woods with a creek running thru the yard. lol However, I am not embellishing or exaggerating when suggesting that none of this would have been possible without the help of my Real Estate Agent Rachel Alosky. Rachel is far too humble to take credit for the subtle influence she had in the process, but I cannot emphasize enough how much I appreciate her genuine and patient approach. Although she is confident in her ability, I don't think she has any idea exactly how talented she is. It was clear from the very beginning that she had my best interests at heart and understood that her success was intimately tied to helping me succeed which so many salespeople seem to rarely grasp these days. She was never pushy or focused on her own interests and was ALWAYS available anytime I needed her even for "stupid", "first-time buyer" questions which were in abundant supply during the time I was involved in a business relationship with Rachel. If you are in the market to buy or sell a home or just want advice from a genuine "salesperson" who is not just "in it for the money" then do not hesitate to contact Rachel Alosky at The Streppa Team! I had heard horror stories about buying and selling homes but with the help of Rachel and her team, the process was a breeze!"
