The owner of a New Jersey estate hopes to build a megamansion at the site that would be bigger than the White House.

“Lloyd Estate,” as the proposed development is known, would rise at the intersection of Undercliff and Lloyd roads in Montclair, plans filed with the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission show.

The 60,000-square-foot home would house a bowling alley, a movie theater, two elevators, a basketball court and a billiard room, according to NorthJersey.com.

The White House, by comparison, is 55,000 square feet.

While rumors had initially swirled that Justin Bieber owned the property, it is actually owned by a Montclair resident who founded Comodo, a cybersecurity company, NorthJersey.com reported.

Some residents who live near the property say the proposed development is far too big for the neighborhood.

“It’s a monstrosity,” resident Gail Shepard told the outlet.

The land was already mired in controversy prior to this proposal. Many locals were outraged after two historic homes that stood at the site were demolished last month, according to the outlet.

The owner will have to secure a zoning variance before plans for the megamansion can move forward.
