I Live in the Most Expensive House in the USA | Animated Story about Luxury
Meet My Story
Published at : 14 Dec 2020
My dad is a famous Hollywood filmmaker and therefore he is used to buying all the best and thevmost expensive things. In general, sometimes cost is more important to him than personal preference and convenience. For example, recently he bought himself a Maybach, although I know that he does not really like this brand of car, but he just loves Ferrari.
I am sure that soon he will buy the latest model of Ferrari and will drive it, and the Maybach will remain in our garage “for the sake of appearance”, or rather to keep face in front of the guests. By the way, there are 80 cars in our garage, but most of them exist only as museum exhibits and are not used at all. After a while they will be brought under the hammer and new cool cars will be bought instead.
The same applies to clothing and technology - dad gives preference to the status and price of the product, discarding his desires and tastes in everything. Although my mother is exactly the same. But I seem to be quite a different breed. No, it's not that I don't like a luxury, I really like it ...
As I said above, our house is the most expensive house in the USA. And this is all for a reason. We have a 4-lane bowling alley, a billiard room, 5 pools, 2 gyms, a helipad with a helicopter, a cinema for 40 people, 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, 3 kitchens and several living rooms and study rooms, a board game room with a ping-pong table, 5 children's playrooms, a car museum, a museum of luxury and art, and 2 wine cellars stocked with the world's best wines and champagnes. And of course, all this is made from the best materials and based on sketches of famous designers.
Oh yes, the terrace offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and Los Angeles. And due to a combination of factors, the value of our home is estimated at $ 500 million. I don't know if it's too much or too little. I think if there was a house that would be more expensive than ours, it would certainly become ours. We are always in pursuit of the price...
And you know, our house is really cool, stylish and just awesome, but only if you don't live here. Although, again, it all depends on the person. While my parents enjoy our home, my existence in it has become a constant war with myself. Because I'm really from a different breed.
To begin with, since childhood I have suffered from agoraphobia. It is a fear of large empty spaces. Now imagine how many such spaces we have in the house and how you can hide from them... That is why I hate our house, I constantly feel a sense of panic and horror in it.
My parents say that I need to visit a psychologist more often and then everything will get better, and I don't understand why should I adapt to this house, instead of changing it for me? And in general, why should one make a six-star hotel out of a home? The house should be a cozy nest, not a walking show-off museum.
The second problem is that after a traumatic brain injury, I lose my orientation in space sometimes. Such attacks are not frequent and last only a couple of minutes, but in our house, it is simply a disaster. Because at such moments, our huge mansion is even more frightening and I feel a real horror.
Once I was on the balcony at the time of the attack and started backing off, trying to figure out where I was and where the door was. I did find a door, but the wrong one, so I flopped my back right into the ice pool. It was a miracle that I didn't drown and managed to get out of there, but it took me a long time to recover.
After moving to this house, one of the walls became an unpleasant surprise for me. The fact is that there is a huge aquarium with jellyfish instead of a wall. It's cute, you might say. It may be cute, but it's hell for me, because I'm very afraid of jellyfish, and it's a form of zoophobia.
Probably, it would be possible just to keep away from that wall, but the fact is that then I simply will not leave the house, because it is located directly opposite the main exit. So I have to face my fears every day. And why do one need such a luxury, tell me?
Also, I want to tell you about the constant violation of my personal borders. The fact is that I am an inveterate introvert and very often I need to stay alone. Yes, it would seem that I have a small family and it is quite possible to enjoy silence and solitude, but nothing of the kind...
The fact is that such a huge house with all its goodies needs a lot of staff. Because of this, 5 housekeepers, 2 cooks live with us, besides them, there are about a dozen security guards, a gardener, a pilot, 3 drivers, 4 waiters and 2 doctors on the territory...
