The dream house you’ve always wanted, if it’s tripled in size, with decorative details and a pool, will definitely make this list. In spite of how much we love our own homes, it’s always interesting to look at some of the most expensive home, and luxurious properties around the world.
Almost everyone dreams of having their own cozy place where they can relax with a pool and a garden while some go all outbuilding luxurious houses to show off to their peers.
Top Expensive Homes In The World
Let’s take a look at some of the most expensive houses in the world that will take you a huge amount of money to build.
1) Xanadu 2.0, Washington DC, USA
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates lives in this 66,000-square-foot home, which he designed himself. He designed and built it in seven years and for 63 million dollars. We are so impressed with the result! A 60-foot-pool, 2100 square feet of library space, a hidden bar, and remotely controlled artwork are among the amenities at Xanadu 2.0. With a value of $125.5million (£94.5million), it’s not surprising one of the world’s richest men made it on the list for his home with its unique bespoke design and technological features.
2) Kensington Gardens, London, UK, 18-19
A property owned by Lakshmi Mittal, the Indian head of Arcelor Mittal, one of the largest steel producers in the world, stood so elegantly on Billionaires Row. Within walking distance of the residence of Prince William and Kate Middleton is this home with twelve bedrooms, 20 parking spaces, an indoor pool, and an immaculately presented garden. Couldn’t it be a pleasure to live here, valued at approximately £97million ($128 million)?
3) Seven The Pinnacle, Montana, USA
Located in the exclusive Yellowstone Club (a private ski and golf community for the mega-rich), this stunning home is one of the largest properties in the community. This beautiful home features a stunning lodge-like design inside and out, and is located in a location with both lots of greenery and lots of snow so you can enjoy the best of both worlds! At $155million (£117million), this home has multiple levels, a gym, a wine cellar, a private ski lift, and even heated floors!
4) Palazzo di Amore, California, USA
One of the world’s most expensive houses is located in Beverly Hills, which comes as no surprise. This property owned by Jeff Greene, a successful entrepreneur, and American politician, looks like a vacation resort. Among its features are 12 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, tennis courts, a swimming pool with waterfalls, a 27-car garage, and even a private movie theatre and ballroom! Every home almost has its own individual theme to it, which is what we love about this property. With a value of $195million (£147million), this is certainly one of the most expensive houses in the world.
5) Ellison Estate, California, USA
The co-founder of Oracle, Larry Ellison, owns this $200million estate (£151million) in the Woodside. Despite its value, this property is comprised of ten individual properties, a manmade lake, tea house, and bathhouse, all of which feature immaculate lodge-style interiors and exteriors. The property is an exemplary wooden property with lake views complete with stone fireplaces, velvet sofas, and wooden pillars.
6) Four Fairfield Pond, New York, USA
There was no doubt New York would pop up eventually – this 63-acre property belongs to Ira Renner, the owner of the Renco Group (a holding company for auto manufacturing and smelting). Featuring 29 bedrooms, three lit-up swimming pools, a dining room 91 feet in diameter, and its own power plant, this is definitely one of the most expensive homes around! Not enough? Sporty and active people will adore this piece of land, as it is home to a basketball court, bowling alley, squash court, and tennis court… Great!
As a bonus, Four Fairfield Pond has a property value of $248.5 million (£188 million)!
7) Villa Les Cedres, French Riviera, France
There’s nothing more royal than 18,000 square feet of living space. The beautiful, traditional royal design of the property, which was built by Belgian kings in 1830, has been carried over to the rooms, including art masterpieces, exquisite furniture, and sophisticated bedding. The property has 14 bedrooms, a 1,800-square-foot Olympic-sized pool, a ballroom, a 3,000-volume library, and stables big enough to house 30 horses! With a value of €352 million (£302 million), this luxurious home located on the beautiful Riviera should have made the top five most expensive homes in the world list.
8) Villa Leopolda, Cote D’Azure, France
An estate with 50 acres in the countryside includes a greenhouse, a pool house, an outdoor kitchen, and a guesthouse. It is owned by Brazilian philanthropist Lily Safra. In comparison to other properties, it offers less than others despite its price. However, it is situated in a stunning, quiet countryside location in France, so maybe it’s worth the €661million (£567million) price tag!
9) Antilia, Mumbai, India
There is no doubt that this is one of the most extravagant properties in the world, valued at 82billion rupees (£906million). Despite the fact that building a 27-story home in one of the world’s most impoverished areas might sound slightly and harshly boastful, Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani thinks otherwise. The building is 400,000 square feet with 27 high ceilings. It has also been shown that the building is earthquake-proof.
Since we really don’t want to miss any features of this home, we decided to create a list instead;
- three rooftop helipads.
- 9 high-tech elevators.
- Glass and steel construction.
- 2-story health center containing an indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi.
- The sixth floor is a family residence.
- Staff houses.
- He has a floor devoted to servicing his automobiles.
- A 50-seat home theatre with a wine room, snack bar, and entertainment area.
- Dance studio.
- 6-story parking garage for 68 cars.
Although there was national outrage, this is an extraordinary home (with an emphasis on the ‘extras’) with some amazing characteristics.
10) Buckingham Palace, London, UK
There seems to be no denying that the Queen of England is pretty much the queen of real estate back home! This Crown property is valued at £1.17billion and includes 775 rooms; 188 staff rooms, 52 royal and guest rooms, 78 bathrooms, and 92 offices. Amazing! Presentation is impeccable, with symmetrical, themed rooms decorated in beautiful colors and detailed elements as well as art masterpieces and chandeliers of unheard-of cost.
