While to most of the earth’s inhabitants a shelter from the harmful weather elements coupled with some conveniences and amenities like food and water comfortably pass for a home, there are some homes in the world, which currently cost more than most of the people, can dare to imagine, more than even some of the biggest corporations.
Here is a comprehensive review of the 7 world’s most expensive homes in the world.
7. The penthouse in One Hyde Park; London
This house hosting a two-floor apartment with six bedrooms is currently the seventh most expensive home in the world standing at $159,000,000. The apartments overlook the Hyde Park, great scenery for the tenants and one worth the price too. The building has virtually all its aspects in great shape and quality too. One very unique feature in these homes is that all the windows are bullet proof for maximum security. Recently it has been said to have been bought by an Eastern European.
6. Palace Green in Kensington Palace Gardens, London
This mansion cost the owner Indian steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal a cool $222,000,000. To match the value however, it has everything just right. The building, for instance portrays elegance and power just from a glance. What is, however, more breathtaking is the inside of the house. It has the best of everything; ample space, necessary appliances, up-to-date technology, and the best supporting staff to ensure the owner lives like the palace the castle is. Security is also quite tight and reliable.
5. Fairfield in Sagaponack, New York
This is not only one of the most expensive homes in the world; owned by Ira Rennert, but one of the most beautiful too. Its beauty and glamor is however best enjoyed from above. Its current value stands at $248,000,000. The home itself is very big and it takes up most of the compound’s space but very strategically. It hosts 29 bedrooms and a ton of other necessities as well as convenient rooms. It is a bright brown and white from afar, colors both of which leak of elegance. The compound on the other hand is very well partitioned and maintained as it also harbors other facilities and pleasures like parking space, swimming pools, gardens, and plantations and others. In addition to the serene compound, the house also faces the beach, enjoying the best of nature too.
4. The White House, Washington DC
It is one of the most significant and protected homes in the world, but not the most expensive. It is nonetheless one of the most expensive ones with a current value of $320,364,354. It has the best of everything really, from amenities and resources to appliances and security. Even nature is subject to some degree of control here. The one unique thing about it however is that unlike the other most expensive homes in the world, buying this home is out of the question. There is only one way in.
3. The Villa Leopolda, France
This is one of the most expensive homes globally, but the most expensive in Europe. It sits on 20 acres of land and is currently worth $506,000,000. A calm and serene environment surrounds it with trees, taking up most of the space set aside for nature. The compound, just like the inside, hosts some great resources and facilities like a swimming pool and a garden to relax in and enjoy the fresh and clean air. The inside too matches the outside in looks and quality. Other aspects like security too are guaranteed.
2. Antilla, Mumbai
This 27-floor tower hovering on the city of Mumbai and worth $1,000,000,000 (1 billion) is one single home. It is not only made with some of the best materials in the industry, it also hosts some of the best and most uniquely bizarre personal collections in the world; the owner’s collection of antique sewing machines for example. Albeit it is a single home, it requires the services of over 600 staff workers to keep on running smoothly on a daily basis. The most noticeable feature about it is that it has a parking space with the capacity to hold about 168 cars, making the chances of at least stepping in as a guest wider.
1. Buckingham Palace
This house tops the list of the most expensive homes in the world standing at $1,560,000,000. Perhaps the most significant feature about it other than the glamour and glory of its status, is its age. All in all, the home is made out of the best stone and construction, and it seems to have survived the years pretty well, without a scratch even. The compound too is not only big, but also plentiful as it hosts some of the best sceneries and the gifts of nature like flowers. A towering statue built just in front of the home; however seems to get all the attention at the first glance and for all the right reasons too since it lacks of among other things power.
All in all, those are the seven most expensive homes in the world, believe it or not.
