We’re going big for this month’s look at the homes you can buy in five different cities. In fact, we’re going so big that some of the homes…aren’t even homes. If you’re looking to buy an entire Hawaiian village, a South African wildlife reserve, or a humble 36,000-square-foot Los Angeles compound, we’ve got you covered. All you need is about $50 million.
10 baths and 10 partials

Twenty-four bedrooms. Twenty total baths. Almost sixty-two-thousand square feet. That’s what you get at Mapungubwe Private Nature Reserve. But the experience of owning one of the world’s largest privately-owned wildlife reserves goes well beyond the numbers—unless you’re counting the elephants, leopards, lions, antelopes, and zebras you encounter here in the South African countryside. This property includes a main house with indulgent views of the native landscape, four additional buildings, and staff quarters.

When no ordinary Hawaiian mega-estate will do, perhaps it’s time to buy an entire village. That’s what you get with this historic one-of-a-kind offering in Kailua Kona. Ha’ikaua Village features six contiguous properties on a coastal peninsula that is encircled by the ocean on three sides. Exquisitely private and distinctly Hawaiian, the village boasts verdant landscaping juxtaposed against the deep blue Pacific waters, with towering palm trees all around and private spaces to enjoy the scenery and serenity. Turn the property into the ultimate compound to enjoy with family and friends, or plan Hawaii’s next must-visit resort.
36,000 square feet
Behind the private gates of Bel Air, this regal estate reveals 36,000 square feet of incomparable space. The modern island kitchen, immense formal dining room, and wine cellar comprise just a small portion of the home’s 20,000 square feet of entertaining space. Play at home with beautifully designed game rooms, a private bowling alley, a large cinema, full bar, and basketball and racquetball court, and then relax in the massage room, sauna, and steam bath. The property’s grounds on a flat one-acre parcel include a resort pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, and dining area.
