hello my lovelies,
Today i am going to write on 10 most expensive houses in the world. i made quite lot of researches and merges common listed name together.
here is the list my lovelies.
1. Buckingham Palace:
Originally known as Buckingham House, the building at the core of today’s palace was a large townhouse built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703 on a site that had been in private ownership for at least 150 years.
It was built in 1703, for the Duke of Buckingham, King George the Third acquired the property for his wife, and it was known as the Queen’s house for a time. It was expanded upon in the 1800s, and became the official London home of the reigning monarch on the ascension of Queen Victoria to the throne.
The Palace contained more than 700 rooms. It is currently valued at $1.55 billion, though the true value of the property is likely impossible to discern, it is in many ways the heart of the English people.
Antilia is a private home in South Mumbai, India. It is owned by Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries, which includes a staff of 600 to maintain the residence 24/7. As of November 2014, it is deemed to be the world’s most expensive residential property, after Buckingham Palace, which is designated as a crown property.
It is thus the world’s most expensive private residential property, valued over $1 billion. Its controversial design and ostentatious use by a single family has made it famous across the world, with severe criticism in the architectural press and mockery in popular media. It is 27 stories high, with a further six floors in the basement, and is owned by the richest man in India, Mukesh Ambani. The top section looks more lived in to be honest, and the stylized design of the building is very attractive to me personally.
It is located on Altamount Road, Cumballa Hill in Mumbai
3. Villa La Leopolda
The Villa La Leopolda is a large detached villa in Villefranche-sur-Mer, in the Alpes-Maritimes department on the French Riviera.
The villa is situated in 18 acres of grounds. The villa has had several notable owners including Gianni and Marella Agnelli, Izaak and Dorothy J. Killam, and, since 1987, by Edmond (1932–1999) and Lily Safra, who inherited the villa after her husband’s death. It is owned by Brazilian philanthropist Lily Safra, and has an out door kitchen, a guest house as large as many mansions and was even featued in a Hitchcock flick. The property is valued at $750 million.
4. Four Fairfield Pond
Sagaponack New York is host to one of the largest homes in the world. The Fairfield Pond is massive, 63 acres or there abouts, and is host to its own power plant, 29 bedrooms and enough bathrooms to take a leak in a different one every day for more than a month. Or 39 in common measurements. The compound, because building is too small a word for this, is owned by billionaire Ira Rennert, of the Renco Group.
He has a personal fortune of $6.3 billion. The property is valued at $248.5 million.
5. 18-19 Kensington Palace Gardens
Numbers 18 and 19 Kensington Palace Gardens might sound like two addresses, but since the late 1990s they have been just one after the former Egyptian Embassy and part of the Russian Embassy were united into a single, private home.
The property was bought in 1997 by obscure academic and property developer David Khalili who spent four years and £20m joining the two addresses together before selling the property on to Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone in 2001 for £50m.
Kensington Palace Gardens is spread over two properties, counted as one home, and is very close to Prince William and Kate Middleton’s house. It is owned by Lakshmi Mittal, a steel baron and one of the richest Indian people in the world. The house is valued at $222 million. On the inside we have a Turkish bath, an indoor pool and a garage that can accommodate 20 vehicles.
6. Ellison Estate
the Ellison Estate is comprised of around ten buildings, but the property is counted as one home. It is owned by Larry Ellison, founder of Oracle, the worlds second largest software developer on the planet, after Microsoft. The estate features a man made lake, koi pond and tea house. It is currently valued at $200 million.
7. Hearst Castle
In San Simeon California there sits a castle. The historical landmark property is worth an estimated $191 Million landing it in the number seven spot on my list. It was built for Newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst, and if that name is familiar to you then you’ve probably seen Citizen Kane.
The film’s own Xanadu was a reference to Hearst Castle, as was the film in general a riff on Hearst’s life. The castle is now a part of the California State park system, and is open to the public.
8.Seven The Pinnacle
Seven the Pinnacle is in the heart of the mountains. A private ski rest and cabin, The Pinnacle was owned by former lumber baron Tim Blixseth, co-founder of the now defunct Yellowstone Club. Blixseth is now bankrupt, and the ownership of the property is suspect, but it is still valued very highly, at $155 million.
Kensington Palace, again in London, as if the name didn’t give it away, is owned by Roman Abromovich. Roman is the owner of Chelsea football club, and the director of investment firm Millhouse LLC. Of course, he’s also an oligarch worth $7.6 billion, but that’s besides the point. The home is in the process of having a basement extension added, very popular with the mega rich in London these days, and there are plans to add a Health Center, a car showroom and a tennis court. the property is currently valued at $140 million.
10. 17 Upper Phillimore Gardens
17 Upper Phillimore Gardens in London’s millionaire town Kensington is the world’s most expensive home. According to Yahoo! Finance, the house is worth $1.58 billion.
The extravagant interiors of this five-story Victorian villa are going to blow your mind. AIDS philanthropist and daughter of a former Ukrainian president (as well as close friend to Elton John) Olena Pinchuk bought the property in 2008. She paid a mere $127 million at that time. From outside, the house may not look something great but the interiors are mind-blowing and rich.
there you have it my lovelies. well, this post might be updated later because am sure there is a very expensive house out there that the owner just wants to remain anonymous or someone is planning to buy something that will beat all these.
so tell me which is your favorite? use the comment section…
