The property, which is 10 years in the making, comes from film producer-turned-real estate developer Nile Niami.

Niami initially hoped to sell it for a whopping $500 million, which would have made it one of the most expensive homes in the world.

But the home was beset with several delays, construction challenges, and cost overruns. Last year, it was placed into a court-ordered receivership and later put into bankruptcy.

It listed for $295 million in January, already a sharp discount from the $500 million Niami hoped to get for the home.

When no buyers bit, the home went into bankruptcy auction. Though the top bid for the home was $126 million, the auction premium and commission fees will bring the total to $141 million.

Concierge Auctions says the pending sale is “more than double the highest US sale at auction and nearly 50% higher than the world record.”
