The new Malibu residence of JAY-Z and Beyoncé is a record-breaker, but it isn’t the priciest residential real estate transaction in the nation. The four-story penthouse in NYC that Ken Griffin paid USD 238 million for back in 2019 still holds the record.

Bill and Maria Bell, great collectors of modern art were the ones who initially ordered Beyoncé’s new home. Its construction took 15 years, and 7,645 cubic yards of concrete were needed for the home alone.

Although it is the largest detached home real estate transaction in the nation. This wasn’t the most costly house ever sold. The condo in New York City that set this record was purchased for $238 million in 2019 by hedge fund billionaire Ken Griffin. However, it’s possible that “apartment” undersells the property a little. The penthouse apartment at the top of the 220 Central Park building has four complete levels.
