Bruce Makowsky is an American entrepreneur and a real estate developer. By constructing a mansion worth $250 million in the Bel Air city of Los Angeles in January, 2017, he set a record of constructing the most expensive home of that time in the United States. Here’s a quick review of Bruce Makowsky’s net worth in 2019.
Bruce Makowsky was born in 1956 in the United States. Most of the data regarding his early life is confidential and rarely any personal information about him is available in the public domain. All we know about him is that he is married to a fashion designer named Kathy Van Zeeland. He currently resides in the Beverly Hills city of California, United States.
Bruce Makowsky started his professional career by selling handbags through their specific stores as well as through an American cable, satellite and broadcast television network called “QVC”. He and his wife ran the business for 30 years. In 2008, they sold the company to “Li & Fung Ltd” of Hong Kong. In 2013, he bought a home worth $5.3 million in the Sunset Strip city of California. He reconstructed the building and then in 2014, he sold it for $19 million.
In the same year, he bought another home worth $12.65 million and after its reconstruction, he sold it for $65 million making a huge profit. In 2014, he sold a mansion to Markus Persson (the creator of a sandbox video game called Minecraft) in $70 million. This mansion was spread over an area of 22,300 square-foot and had innovative features, like a candy wall, a car turntable and an infinity pool. After selling a record setting mansion for $250 million in 2017, he told the press that the idea of the mansion came from a very extravagantly priced luxury motor yacht called “Megayachts”.
He wanted this yacht to be on land and so went on to construct the record breaking mansion. This mansion was spread over 38,000 square-foot and had 3 kitchens, 21 bathrooms, 4 floors and 12 bedrooms. It also had a 40 seat movie theatre and an infinity swimming pool with a liquor bar. The mansion had 130 precious artworks spread in all corners, a helicopter model on its roof top and 12 car parkings with most expensive cars, like a Pagani Huayra, Bugatti Veyron, a 1936 Mercedes-Benz 540K and a Rolls-Royce Dawn parked in it. This huge mansion took almost 4 years to get constructed.
