The 15 Most Expensive Homes in the World for Sale

15. The Beverly House, Beverly Hills, California – $174 million

If you recognise the property, you’re not alone. The home featured in the iconic 1992 film The Bodyguard, as well as The Godfather when movie producer Jack Woltz wakes up next to a severed horse head. And as if that wasn’t enough to see this estate rack up the offers from interested buyers, it even served as the backdrop for Beyoncé’s musical film Black Is King.

14. Palazzo di Amore, Beverly Hills, California – $180 million

This mega-mansion covers a staggering 50,000 square feet and was once considered the most expensive homes in the US at $195 USD. If the price seems excessive, just wait until you hear the features on offer: there’s a 10,000-bottle wine cellar, a 12,500-square-foot, in-home entertainment complex with bowling alley, theatre and ballroom and it even has its own rotating dance floor. Outside, there’s a separate guesthouse, swimming pool and another pool, tennis court, and gardens.

13. Green Gables, Woodside, California – $181 million

The estate sits on 74 acres of land in Woodside and boasts a real slice of history, with the original home remaining since it was originally built back in 1911. The grounds are home to trails that wind through the redwoods, with stunning oaks and eucalyptus and if a slice of nature always leaves you thirsty, there’s even a Michelin star pub that comes with the place.

12. Le Palais Venitien, France – $196

This mansion takes its cues from the city of Venice, with stunning architecture and sweeping views. Situated on nearly six acres, the palace looks out over the Mediterranean and features stately columns and arches reminiscent of those found along the Grand Canal.

11. 90 Jule Pond Drive, Southampton, New York – $203 million

Naturally, on a list of the world’s most expensive estates, it’s only right that there be a Hamptons property. This slice of paradise sits on 42 acres and has some of the best ocean frontage money can be. The property also features a pool, spa, tennis court and – you guessed it – meditation garden.

10. Vatuvara Private Islands, Fiji – $216 million

If the thought of owning your own 5,187-acre plot of land in one of the most stunning landscapes you could imagine isn’t enough to seal the deal, consider this: the property comes complete with its own set of luxury hotel villas, too. Located on the shore of Kaibu Island, you’ll get four islands for the one purchase. And as the listing suggests, you can choose to continue to operate the three villas as their new manager, or just make them your own personal seaside escapes.

9. Villa Firenze, Beverly Park, California – $223 million

If you watched Under the Tuscan Sun and dreamed of owning your own abode in Tuscany, this is the property for you. Granted, it’s not actually in Italy, but it still has that rustic, luxury aesthetic without being brazen. The former stomping grounds of billionaire Steven Udvar-Hazy, the home sits on an enviable nine-acre land parcel and features a spectacular driveway, outdoor pool, statues and loiung area. It even has a 30-car motor court.

8. Mesa Vista Ranch, Pampa, Texas – $307 million

Financier T. Boone Pickens spent 50 years developing this luxury ranch and it’s easy to see why the price tag attached to the property is so high. With its 65,000 acres, the main residence takes up a whopping 33,000 square feet. And if that wasn’t enough, there are manmade streams and new conservation practices to preserve the wildlife along with amenities that include a two-story pub and 11,000-square-foot dog kennel.

7. Aspen Valley Ranch, Aspen, Colorado – $307 million

This 800-acre property is stunning, having previously been owned by Charif Souki, the co-founder and former CEO of Cheniere Energy who, at one time, was the highest-paid executive in the United States. There’s a horse barn, garage with room for four-vwheelers and snowmobiles and it’s just 10 miles outside of Aspen.

6. Casa Encantada, Bel Air, California – $314 million

Originally built in 1937 by architect James Dolena, this property was designed in an “H” shape so as to maximise views. It sits on eight acres of land and is located less than 10 minutes from the iconic Rodeo Drive. And if you needed further persuasion, know that it was once owned by the magnate behind the Hilton hotel brand: Conrad Hilton himself.

5. Gateways Canyons Ranch, Gateway, Colorado – $390 million

Ever thought of owning a property that has its own car museum, mansion and airplane hangar? Look no further than Gateways Canyons Ranch. Originally developed by Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks, no expense has been spared on the property that includes an observatory, theatre, spa, library and art studio.

4. Brewster Ranches, Marathon, Texas – $460 million

This parcel of land sits on a staggering 420,000 acres and is situated in the stunning region of Big Bend. The property is made up of multiple homes and lodges on the grounds and also includes an airstrip and airplane hangar that can be fixed up to the fully operational again.

3. Pierre Cardin’s Bubble Palace, France – $460 million

With its distinct architecture, this unique property is as eye-catching as it is expensive. Cardin commissioned Hungarian architect Antti Lovag to design the “palace” by the Cannes coast in 1975, taking inspiration from prehistoric caves that early humans dwelled in for the Bubble Palace.

2. 24 Middle Gap Road, HongKong – $625 million

Known for being one of the most expensive cities, Hong Kong boasts the second most expensive property on the list. In comparison to other properties that have come before it, there’s not much to celebrate when it comes to 24 Middle Gap Road in comparison. But you’re not exactly paying for the architecture in this case, but rather the exclusive location.

1. The One, Bel Air, California – $698 million

It’s not even complete yet, but that hasn’t stopped The One from taking out the top spot on the list. at 100,000 square feet, the 20 bedroom, 30 bathroom abode boasts a primary suite that is bigger than most New York condos – coming in at a jaw-dropping 5,500 square feet. The amenities include five swimming pools, an in-house night club, six-lane bowling alley and more.
