The financier Marc Bell has boldly relisted his “Star Trek”-themed mansion in Boca Raton, FL, for $19.9 million. It’s yet another major price cut to entice a buyer who sees the logic behind this one-of-a-kind residence.
The home from another galaxy made headlines in 2014, when it landed on the market for $35 million. In 2018, the home teleported back into our lives for $34.5 million. Last year, the price came down to $25 million and then subsequently dropped to $22.9 million.
Now, the property has returned for another trip around the real estate universe—at a price 43% lower than it was six years ago.
Bell, a sci-fi superfan and the managing partner of Marc Bell Capital, custom-built the 20,000-square-foot home, complete with an homage to the iconic TV show.
However, from the street, the Mediterranean-style mansion in an exclusive enclave gives no hint as to what’s inside.
Guests enter and are greeted by a grand two-story foyer with a curved staircase. High ceilings and white walls showcase a motorized chandelier and an impressive art collection.
But the star of the show is the home’s homage to “Star Trek.” Trekkies will appreciate the level of detail in the home theater, which is built to resemble the fictional space ship Enterprise, complete with captain chairs, starry sky, and doors that make the familiar “whoosh” sound when opened.
Want to watch a movie? Make it so! A connected themed bar lets you “engage” in a drink during a show.
More memorabilia spills over into a sitting room, where framed Yoda art from “Star Wars” is the focus. In addition, there’s a massive rec room with a 150-gallon fish tank, bar, and arcade games (which will leave with the owner).
Conventional amenities include a formal living room and dining room, as well as a family room. The large kitchen features a marble island and countertops, as well as multiple casual eating areas, Miele, Wolf, and Sub-Zero appliances, plus a built-in espresso maker. Other perks include a 1,500-bottle wine room, an elevator, and a gym.
The nine-bedroom spread has a master suite with dual baths and two walk-in closets. Additional bedrooms are decorated with a pirate theme and the video game “Call of Duty.”
Outside, the grounds include a pool with rock formations and a cascading waterfall, as well as a heated spa. An outdoor kitchen contains a barbecue center and dining area. Along with multiple patios, there’s a sport court and room for a helipad.
The gated home sits in an enclave of the Woodfield Country Club and is outfitted with automated systems that control security, lights, and audio.
