It's been nine years in the making, with around 100 workers on the site every day. And it's still months away from being finished.
The construction of the $139 million Hillsboro Beach, Florida, estate known as Le Palais Royal has been a monumental job. And "Secret Lives of the Super Rich" got the first look inside—from the custom-made doors to the $2 million grand staircase and the $4 million resort-sized pool. When finished, the house will be more than 60,000 square feet, with 11 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms and a subterranean garage that can hold 30 cars.
Like a growing number of megahomes in Florida, it was inspired by Versailles.
"There's a lot of gold relief throughout the house," said Tom Murphy, the builder for the project. Murphy, who has worked on the homes of at least 20 billionaires, wouldn't reveal the name of Le Palais Royal's owner.
