If so, you will see much more than one, I mean an entire top 10 most expensive houses in the world, or how I like to say Most Incredible Homes In The World that are owned by some of the most famous, most successful and richest people on the planet.
10. The $135 million Beverly House, Beverly Hills, California
Beverly House, located three blocks from Sunset Boulevard, is currently on the market for $135 million. In the meantime, renters can pay $600,000 per month to get free rein of the lux property. It sits on six flat acres of land and includes a slew of smaller homes in addition to the Italian- and Spanish-style, H-shaped main house.
9. The $102 million Fleur de Lys Mansion, Los Angeles
This past March, the Fleur de Lys Mansion sold for $102 million, making it the highest-priced home sale to date in Los Angeles County. It was first listed in 2007 when original owners David and Suzanne Saperstein finished renovating the manse, divorced and moved out. The current owner, who paid entirely in cash and has chosen to remain anonymous, is rumored to be former junk bond king Michael Milken, according to the L.A. Times.
8. The $750 million Villa Leopolda, Villefranche-sur-mer, France
When Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov attempted to buy Villa Leopolda in 2008, it was valued at a whopping €500 million — equal to about $750 million at the time. It was built in 1902 by Belgium’s King Leopold II, who gave it as a gift to one of his mistresses. Lebanese banker Edmond Safra bought the estate in 1988 and left it to his widow Lily Safra when he died in an arsonist’s fire in 1999. She’s the current owner.
7. The $45 million 15 Central Park West, New York City
According to Michael Gross, author of the book “House of Outrageous Fortune: Fifteen Central Park West, the World’s Most Powerful Address,” this high-end Manhattan building is known as “Limestone Jesus.”
6. The $89.4 million Kensington Palace Gardens, London
Indian steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal calls this Kensington Palace Gardens home his “Taj Mittal.” He bought it for £57 million — about $89.4 million in today’s dollars — from English business magnate Bernie Eccclestone in 2004. The estate’s nickname is only sort of a joke: Mittal renovated it with marble that was sourced from the same quarry as the actual Taj Mahal.
5. The $400 million Penthouse at the Tour Odéon, Monte Carlo, Monaco
The opulent and shiny 49-story Tour Odéon building hasn’t even opened its doors, and already its penthouse has been called the most expensive in the world. Set to open in spring 2015, the 35,500-square-foot apartment is expected to sell for almost $400 million, according to CNNMoney. The 560-foot skyscraper will be the second-tallest building on the Mediterranean skyline once it’s complete.
4. The $1 billion Antilia, Mumbai, India
Antilia, a 27-story skyscraper on the pricey Altamount Road in Mumbai, is the most expensive home in the world, valued at upwards of $1 billion. Mukesh Ambani, an Indian business tycoon and multibillionaire, moved into the 400,000-square-foot mansion in 2012 with his wife and three children. The modern property was designed by Chicago-based architects Perkins & Will.
Antilia, which was named for a phantom island in the Atlantic, features a multistory garage with space for 168 cars, a ballroom, three helipads, gardens, a temple, guest suites, a health level and a home theater that seats 50.
3. The $125.5 million Xanadu 2.0, Medina, Washington
Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder and the world’s second-richest man, took seven years to custom-build Xanadu 2.0, a modern-yet-rustic, high-tech estate valued at $125.5 million. According to luxury website The Pinnacle List, Gates bought the lot in 1998 for $14 million. It’s named after the home of the title character in “Citizen Kane.”
2. The $195 million Palazzo di Amore, Beverly Hills, California
Real estate mogul Jeff Greene just listed his 25-acre estate in Beverly Hills for a heart-stopping $195 million, earning the property the honor as the country’s most expensive listing. The Palazzo di Amore is a Mediterranean-style villa that tops 53,000 square feet of space, though 15,000 of that is an entertainment complex containing a ballroom with a revolving dance floor.
1. The $249 million Fair Field, Sagaponack, New York
Fair Field, a 63-acre oceanfront compound in The Hamptons, is valued at around $248.5 million. It’s owned by billionaire investor Ira Rennert, who started building the sprawling estate in 1999 but couldn’t move in with his family until 2004 after plowing through some na*ty neighborly controversy.
