Owner re-lists “Star Trek” mansion, asks $34.5M
Entrepreneur Marc Bell built the mansion with a home theater that looks like the fictional USS Enterprise featured in "Star Trek" TV shows and movies
The owner of an unusual “Star Trek”-themed mansion in Boca Raton put the place back on the market with a $34.5 million asking price.
Entrepreneur Marc Bell built the 20,000-square-foot residence in 2006 with a home theater that looks like the bridge of the USS Enterprise, the fictional spacecraft featured in the old “Star Trek” television show and in subsequent movies based on the TV series.
The mansion also has a fairy-tale room, pirate room with a bed designed to resemble a pirate ship, and a game room that looks like a World War II-vintage bunker.
The mansion also has a 1,500-bottle wine room, an elevator, and a helicopter pad approved by the Federal Aviation Administration, plus nine bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and six half-baths.
Bell, who once owned Penthouse Magazine and served as chief executive officer of website FriendFinder, now focuses on his venture capital firm, Marc Bell Capital.
He has re-listed his Boca Raton mansion for sale with real estate agent Max Kiejdan.
Bell listed the residence for sale in 2014 with a $35 million asking price, which he cut to $30 million in 2015. He is more motivated to sell now because his children have graduated high school, according to Kiejdan. [Realtor.com] – Mike Seemuth
