Spanning more than 20,000 square feet on half a hectare of land, the 8408 Hillside Avenue spec mansion in Los Angeles was first listed in August for $43.9 million by real estate developer Jeff Thomas.

Thomas bought out two homes next door for $4.25 million and $2.7 million over several years to make space for the property, according to the Wall Street Journal. According to some calculations, it’s more than 800 percent larger than the average house in America.
