There are lots of people in the Tri-Cities who never thought they would live in a home valued at over $300,000. But many folks who may have recently re-financed and had to have their home appraised, have discovered that the home they bought for $150k 10 or 15 years ago is now valued at twice that.

But many homes are truly worth their actual price tag (I think). The most expensive home in Washington State sits on a beautiful private lake. It's called The Buck Quarter Ranch in Northeast Washington and you can see all the beautiful pictures of it below. (I'd be thrilled just to live in one of the guesthouses!) It's a gargantuan log home that is over 12,000 square feet and sits on more than 900 acres of incredibly beautiful land.

The Buck Quarter Ranch located in Northeast Washington in the town of Cusick rivals the hit television series, ‘Yellowstone’ Ranch. The log home is over 12,000 square feet and sits on over 900 acres of unspoiled property that will satisfy anyone’s “all-season” playground needs. Scroll through the gorgeous photos.

But how does that compare to one of the most expensive homes in California? Priced at $295 million, it is America's most expensive home! Located in Bel Air California, it's a 100,000 square-foot, 29 bedroom, 41 bathroom home. Cleaning day must be a b!t@h! Oh wait a minute, they probably have some hired help to deal with that.

 

The most expensive home in America is a $295 million mansion in California.

I can tell you right now that both homes are naturally stunning. But the Bel Air home is a bit hoity-toity for me. I'll take the beautiful log home in Washington State any day. Check out the photos below. Which one would you choose?
