Inside an $ 87.7 million Bel Air home with an NFT art gallery – Robb Report
Well, the craze for NFT has officially made its way into the brick and mortar real estate market. A new Bel Air listing, which hits the market for $ 87.7 million, features both a non-fungible token gallery and a light show. Perfect for the budding digital art collector.
The house is huge: it offers approximately 21,000 square feet and has seven bedrooms. This is the idea of ââplastic surgeon and real estate developer Dr Alex Khadavi, who was inspired by the golden ratio of Italian mathematician Fibonacci during the construction. Naturally, then, the proportions of the house are all very carefully considered. The development enjoys stunning views of the San Gabriel Mountains and the Channel Islands, which is why Khadavi has dubbed this five-year project Palazzo di Vista, or âPalace of Viewsâ.
It is quite the place to organize a party. For one thing, there’s a literal DJ rig in the middle of the main lounge, although you wouldn’t know it just by looking, because most of the time it’s completely hidden away. Push a button and it will come out of the ground via a hydraulic lift. Turn on some of the house’s built-in smoke machines if you want to get some real fury. Just outside, the pool has jets that pump water to the beat of the music the DJ spins inside.
The pool is also, believe it or not, the site of one of the mansion’s more NFT oriented amenities. Outside there is a rotating 3D laser projector that can project light in the shape of a diamond measuring up to 1,650 square feet above the pool. It is said to be inspired by one of California’s most famous attractions, Disneyland, and its flashy World of Color light show. Here you can have the show as the NFT artwork you want, as long as there is a good song in the background.
Inside there’s an NFT art gallery, which is arguably a better place to sit and appreciate the digital medium than the outdoor setup. The Palazzo di Vista is equipped with a collection worth $ 7 million. It features pieces by artist Ghost Girl and music producer BigHead, who worked on the song “Gucci Gang” by Lil Pump. The gallery has seven large displays; pre-existing works of art can be purchased separately if the buyer is interested.
The mansion, however, is more than just a glorified NFT warehouse. It also comes with a few decidedly IRL perks, including a glass elevator, car gallery, movie theater, and champagne tasting room (where you can of course sample other vinos as well). There is also a koi pond outside, which is separate from the party pool (obviously). Visiting family and friends can stay in a detached guest house, which has its own kitchen.
