Marc Bell, former owner of Penthouse Magazine and FriendFinder Networks, recently put up his personal Boca Mansion on the market for sale for 35 million dollars. The Star Trek themed home has 27,254 square feet that includes an 11-seat movie theater designed to mirror the USS Enterprise. The home also boasts a lobby to the movie theater with other Star Trek memorabilia that Bell has collected over the years. The home is also equipped with an amazing 8 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, $2 million in technology, along with a game room and basketball court among many other amazing features in this one-of-a-kind, unique residence!
Bell’s home is located in the exclusive Woodfield Country Club community in Boca Raton, Florida at the 3600 block of Northwest 52nd Street, took four years to build. Mr. Bell moved into the home in 2006. Many real estate experts are shocked at Bell’s bold asking price of $35 million! He certainly is looking for an emotional buyer willing to pay the ultimate premium for this unique home. In fact, the Palm Beach Country Property Appraiser’s office recently appraised Mr. Bell’s mansion for $6.1 million.
Parkland and South Florida real estate expert Michael Citron is astonished by the asking price with the home being nowhere near the ocean. Realtor Michael Citron was quoted in the Sun-Sentinel as stating, “Does the $35 million include William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy?” he joked. However, Bell is content on his asking price stating that, “It only takes one person … One Trekkie-mad person.”
