Marc Bell has created a geek haven with his Star Trek inspired home in Florida, which is currently on the market for $29.95 million, according to toptenrealestatedeals.com. Occupying over 1.6 acres and over 27,000 total square footage, this estate is one of the most unique offerings of its kind and is sure to be approved by Trekkies, and even Commander Spock.
The mansion is sited on almost two acres of tropical plantings with 20,000 square feet, holding nine bedrooms and ten baths, as stated on npsir.com. Located in a country club community, the estate includes a chef’s kitchen, wine room, dramatic two-story foyer with curved marble stairs and wrought iron railing. There is also a gym, multiple indoor/outdoor living and entertaining spaces, a free-form swimming pool and spa with tall waterfall and a full-sized basketball court.
Marc Bell is such a fan of Star Trek that he devoted one wing of his Boca Raton mansion to his collection of Star Trek memorabilia. Enter a Trekkie’s paradise with its full-scale Borg model, and a Call-of-Duty themed gaming room, while an arcade room is home to over 60 games, including Star Trek and Star Wars novelty games.
In addition, Bell has replicated the pièce de résistance – the bridge from the Starship Enterprise, and the theme of the home’s theater. The bridge replica also is equipped with a sound system that mimics the “whoosh” noise that the bridge doors make in Star Trek.
Bell’s passions span the fields of finance, performing arts and media as evidenced by his founding of Marc Bell Capital, which he is the managing partner of, and producer of plays, musicals and movies. His Jersey Boys won a Tony Award for Best Musical in 2006 and August: Osage County won Best Play in 2008.
Located within the private security gated enclave of Princeton Estates, within Woodfield CC, the home offers maximum security, privacy, and all the home features and amenities that reflect the finest estates throughout the World, within a World Class country club community.
