The house is in Bel Air, Los Angeles and costs a whopping $250 million. With it handbag tycoon and owner-developer Bruce Makowsky dethroned the previous record-holder, a $195 million mega-mansion in Manalapan, Florida. The 38,000-square-foot mansion, which comes with custom-made luxury furnishings, houses 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, three kitchens, a bowling alley, a movie theater, an 85-foot infinity pool with its own bar, and a candy room filled with $200,000 worth of treats. Makowsky also included a car collection worth $30 million and 130 works of art, and topped his billionaire's paradise with a helicopter. The cost also encompasses seven live-in employees who will work at the property full-time.

Next to the candy room, guests can walk to the property's private bowling alley (pictured) with custom-made furnishings

An extravagant James Bond-themed, $2million screening room (pictured) can sit 40 guests on Italian leather reclining chairs

Inside the home is this Hermes Equateur Blanket, made out of cashmere and hand-embroidered with fine beads and pearls. IT has been encased between starfire glass panels with custom-made standoffs

Also included in the art collection is this stainless over-sized Leica camera sculpture made by artist Liao Yibai

Inside the property is this sculpture by Gale Hart, who has produced several gun-themed works of art over the years

The owner of the property will enjoy these Lamborghini clock walls and vintage gas cans and fire extinguishers from 1892

A Hobie Cat is displayed next to the infinity pool, in keeping with other nautical nuances scattered around the estate

Two more of Gale Hart's firearm-themed works of art can be found in a different part of the extravagant, artsy property

On the roof sits the original helicopter from the TV show Airwolf, which ran from 1984 to 1987. The helicopter was refurbished over twelve months and customized to incorporate the luxurious details of the house

Rock on! The home even has a couple of rock royalty guitars displayed inside cases as part of its incredible art collection

Handbag tycoon and owner-developer Bruce Makowsky dreamed up the property, inspired by his own glamorous lifestyle

The house also comes with a collection of 130 works of art and a garage filled with expensive vehicles (pictured at the back)

Makowsky oversaw every single detail inside the property and wanted to created 'the greatest feeling' one can get at home

The house also comes with this installation that looks like a pinball machine but is actually a Veuve Clicquot-themed artwork

The home was built in four years without a buyer lined-up - and only about 1,810 billionaires around the world can afford it

It took more than 250 people to build the massive Bel Air property, which has panoramic views of the Los Angeles area

There is also a garage filled with 12 luxury vehicles, including a $15-million-plus Von Krieger 1936 Mercedes 540 K Special Roadster and a $2 million one-of-a-kind Pagani Huayra

Makowsky believes the home will appeal to a rich homebody who won't want to venture outside too much - and will be able to work out at home in the fitness center

The tycoon doesn't plan to host an extravagant open-house and wants instead to show the property to restricted groups

Only one of the world's estimated 1,810 billionaires could possibly afford the home - maybe one of the 540 who live in the US
