Marc Bell, a financier, producer, and former CEO of adult networking site FriendFinder Networks (best-known as the corporate parent of Penthouse), is once again selling his massive South Florida home. Even at a discounted $29.95 million, it’s still the most expensive home listed in the city of Boca Raton, an affluent enclave north of Miami.
The mansion was previously listed for $35 million in May 2014. According to Bell, the family had found a buyer for the house but decided at the last minute not to move.
“We had a rebellion [from our kids] who wanted to live out their high school days there,” Bell told Business Insider. “We decided not to sell and take it off the market.”
Nestler Poletto Sotheby’s International Realty has the new listing.
The eight-bedroom Mediterranean-style house is obviously beautiful from the outside, but don’t let its stylish facade deceive you; inside, there’s an extensive re-creation of the starship Enterprise, along with plenty of other “Star Trek” memorabilia. There’s also a “Call of Duty” room, basketball court, and 2,000-square-foot ballroom turned arcade.
But if “Star Trek” isn’t your thing, you might also enjoy the home’s extensive entertaining areas and gated-community perks. It has a little something for everyone.
Bell’s home is a jaw-dropping 27,000 square feet on 1.6 acres.
The house is situated inside a Boca Raton country club and has some impressive amenities to go along with that, like tennis courts, a golf course, and a shopping center. “Imagine living in a resort,” Bell said. “Everything is there.”
The front door has beautiful Mediterranean details, and palm trees shade the entryway. But don’t let the classic exterior fool you.
