Inside a $50 million beach house
Step inside what's been called the ultimate "billionaire's beach house" in Malibu, Calif.
CNBC cameras were given a whirlwind tour of the megamansion called "La Villa Contenta." The eight-acre palatial estate sits on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, near a little stretch of sand known as "Billionaire's Beach." This neighborhood is where some of the richest people on the planet have their second, third, or fourth getaway home.

The listing agent, Aaron Kirman, told CNBC this "megavacation home" has 13 bedrooms, 14 baths, two living rooms, a movie theater, an enormous greenhouse and three pools with ocean views.
The trophy beach house for the super rich comes complete with what you might call a "trophy pool house." You have to step across a moat to get inside it, and you'll find an indoor pool and fireplace.
The owner, real estate developer Richard Weintraub, also built the property. He clearly loves seashells—the ceilings, outdoor lights, statues and all 11 chandeliers inside the pool house are covered in them. The broker said it took over a million shells to pull off the look.
