1. Buckingham Palace | London, UK

Buckingham Palace is technically a Crown property and comprises 775 rooms, 188 staff rooms, including 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 92 offices, 78 bathrooms, and 19 staterooms making this not just the world’s most expensive residence but also the most ‘roomy’.

2. Antilia | Mumbai, India

Owned by India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, the 400,000-square-foot Antilia on Mumbai’s Cumballa Hills is situated in one of the world’s most expensive addresses—Altamount Road. Designed by Chicago-based architects Perkins and Will, with the Australian-based construction company Leighton Holdings taking charge of its construction, the building comes with 27 floors, replete with extra-high ceilings. Every floor is equivalent to an average two-storey building’s floor. In fact, Antilia can survive an earthquake of magnitude 8 on the Richter scale. India’s most expensive house also has six dedicated floors for cars, including Ambani’s INR 5 crore Mercedes Maybach.


3. Villa Leopolda | Cote D’Azure, France

The villa has had several notable owners including Gianni and Marella Agnelli, Izaak and Dorothy J. Killam, and, since 1987, Lily Safra, who inherited the villa after her husband’s death. A Brazilian philanthropist and widow of Lebanese banker William Safra, her 50-acre estate includes a massive greenhouse, a swimming pool and pool house, an outdoor kitchen, helipad, and a guest house. The house was even used as a set in the Alfred Hitchcock classic To Catch a Thief.

4. Villa Les Cèdres | French Riviera

The Villa Les Cèdres on the French Riviera—priced at a whopping $410 million—is fit for a king, probably because it was built for the King of Belgium back in 1830 . The 18,000-square-foot home comes with 14 bedrooms, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, a wood-panelled library holding 3,000 books on flora and naturalism (including a 1640 edition of a botanical codex), a man-made pond with Amazonian lily pads, a bronze statue of Athena, a chandelier-lit ballroom, a stable big enough for 30 horses, grand sitting rooms, 19th century portraits in ornate frames, and stunning wood work throughout. With a list price of €350 million ($410 million), the owner, the Italian distiller Davide Campari-Milano SpA, is betting that the house’s combination of history, luxury, and a prime location will be enough to make it the most expensive residential sale in history.The 7 most expensive homes in the world
