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!

"Alona is fantastic in every way. She responded to my questions immediately and unlike so many other real estate agents, I really felt like she was my advocate. I've purchased many properties with other agents and they alway push me to offer more and close the deal, like all that matters to them is their commission. Alona was not like that at all. She was knowledgable, professional and a complete pleasure to work with. Alona has earned my loyalty from now on.
I cannot think of a single area that wasn't done to my complete satisfaction.
Alona gets my highest recommendation. She is knowledgable, prompt, courteous, and professional. When I had questions about the property, she went the extra mile to get the correct answers. I never felt like Alona wanted to quickly close the deal, but rather that she truly cared about finding me the right property at the right price. I will never use another agent."
