McClean has collaborated with Miami on numerous projects over the last 12 years, from renovations in the Hollywood Hills to new-builds in the Bird Streets.
Interior designer Kathryn Rotondi of KFR Design created the lavish yet surprisingly liveable interiors, playing up the home's enormous scale with oversized art pieces and custom furnishings by Vesta.
Niami, a former film producer turned developer, purchased the eight-acre property for $28 million in late 2012, and construction took eight years and 600 laborers to complete.
Branden and Rayni Williams of Williams & Williams Estates Group and Aaron Kirman of Compass will share The One's listing. If it fetches $340 million, the sale will oust Jeff Bezos' recent purchase of the $165 million Warner Estate in Beverly Hills, currently the priciest single-family transaction in California history. It will also shatter the record for the country's highest-priced home ever sold, held by hedge fund billionaire Ken Griffin, who snapped up a $238 million NYC penthouse in 2019.
