Not only do mansions cost so much money most of us can only dream of having, they also cost a lot to run.

And 9Honey.com.au website reports for one well-heeled new homeowner, their electricity bill to keep cool in summer and the interior toasty when the mercury plunged came in at a mind-blowing $US50,000 ($78,000) a month.

That is the cost of heating and cooling The One - a brand new, behemoth Bel Air estate, in Los Angeles that was ten years in the making and has been plagued with problems since the soil was turned.
