The sprawling mansion in Bel-Air is four levels and 38,000 square feet of interiors. It features 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, three kitchens, bowling alley, movie theater, candy room and an infinity pool complete with swim-up bar, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Additionally, the lavish property includes a decommissioned helicopter from the 1980s-television show “Airwolf” parked on the roof, as well as a $30-million car collection, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The home — located at 924 Bel Air Road — is also completely furnished, and has more than 100 art installations spaced throughout the estate, developer Bruce Makowsky said on a website devoted to the luxury property.

Seven full-time staffers that will be paid by Makowksy for two years are also included, according to The Times.

The property features a 270-degree view that extends from Malibu to the San Gabriel Mountains, according to Makowsky, whose teams has also sold eight luxury homes in the past five years.

Makowsky wrote on the site that he purchased the property after searching “by land and helicopter” for the perfect piece of land as he sought to create “the most extraordinary, exciting and dramatic contemporary estate ever built in the most beautiful place in the United States.”

“This home was curated for the ultimate billionaire who wants the best of everything that exists in life,” Makowsky wrote on the website. “Until now, the ultra-luxury market was void of homes that even came close to matching the level of mega-yachts and private jets that billionaires spend millions of dollars on every year.”

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
