Estes Park, CO, July 18, 2006 – The most expensive single- family home listed in America has
just gone on the market for $135 million, taking the "most expensive listing in America" title
away from Donald Trump's oceanfront estate in Palm Beach (FL), which carries a $125 million
price tag. The newly listed Aspen (CO) home is owned by Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin
Abdul Aziz, who is selling the estate to pursue his new responsibilities as chairman of his
nation's new national Security Council.

"By comparison," said Robby Carson, a real estate professional with Estes Park Realty and

buyers internationally who are in a position to purchase a property of this magnitude."

According to Moore-Moore, this is a trophy house and its appeal will not only be its size and the
unique features it offers, but the opportunity for the buyer to own the world's most expensive

foot home has more than 30 rooms, an indoor pool, trails, a snowmelt driveway, employee living
quarters and stables. The main home has 16 bathrooms and 15 bedrooms a nd is larger than the
White House.

 “There are currently more fine home and estate properties now available in the Estes Park
Colorado MLS system priced at a million dollars or more than in some time,” according to
Carson. “Most of the current owners are planning to stay in the Estes Park area by purchasing or
building another property.”
