    Default 20 Most Expensive Homes In The World

    #20 Henley Mansion in Berkshire, England This mansion is owned by a Russian billionaire with a value of $218 million. It's back sits on Thames River with amazing views, and it has two golf courses. The structure is 300-years old and holds numerous stories of it past, some of which are of hauntings! #19 Updown Court, Surrey, England
    Worth at least $150 million today, the Updown Court is one of most significant private homes in the UK. It shares the neighborhood with Elton John and the Queen of England and proves if you can afford to, you can live as extravagant as a royal.
    #18 Woolworth Mansion, New York, NY This neo-French Renaissance townhouse in the Big Apple is valued at $90 million. The designer-architect was Charles Pierpont Henry Gilbert in 1916. It surly would be like "traveling back in time" to visit this urban mansion!
    #17 Tranquility, Lake Tahoe, Nevada Valued at $100 million this 210-acre property was built from scratch by the owner, Joel Horowitz, the co-founder of Tommy Hilfiger. It has a 3,500-bottle wine cellar, an indoor swimming pool and atrium, as well as a 19-seat movie theater. This Northern European mountain home styling is fabulous!
    #16 Maison de L'Amitie, Palm Beach, Florida In 2004, Donald Trump bought Maison de L'Amitie. He's refurbished the oceanfront property that also has a 100-foot swimming pool surrounded by gardens. It's been valued at $125 million and obviously opulent!
    #15 Albemarle House, Charlottesville, Virginia Albemarle House is one of the most important estates built in the U.S. after the Civil War. It consists of 300 acres in Charlottesville Virginia and it's neighbors to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. The eight-bedroom Georgian home has been valued at $100 million.
    #14 One Hyde Park, London, England This building is located overlooking Hyde Park in the city of London, and the views are spectacular! A humble one-bedroom flat is said to cost $11 million and a Penthouse for $200 million.. That's posh.. posh!
    #13 Eurasia, Moscow Manor in Russia This 11,700-square-foot home with two guest houses and a recreation center that has a pool, is valued at $100 million. It's scenic country living yet a close drive to Moscow.. truly a dream "From Russia with Love".
    #12 Hala Ranch, Aspen, Colorado Hala Ranch, is a 95-acre estate built in 1991 for the family of Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former ambassador to the U.S. from Saudi Arabia. It's valued $135 million. We bet the pool is extra heated for brisk winters!
    #11 Starwood Estate, Aspen, Colorado Living in this Estate would be like owning your own town with access to amazing skiing! It has a worth of $135 million and the large home and property features smaller buildings, stables, a tennis court and an indoor swimming pool!



    #10 Waterfront Estate, Istanbul, Turkey This 30,000 square feet home with ship quay is located on three-quarters of an acre directly on the Bosphorus in Istanbul. It has an estimated value is $100 million with many of it's 64 rooms of gilded moldings and crystal chandeliers looking out to the water.
    #9 Villa La Palladiana, France Located in Cap d'Ail, this sea facing property is a French Riviera paradise offering numerous terraces and balconies. The Cap Ferrat Villa also has an outdoor pool and indoor pool, sauna, and fitness center and is valued at $76 million. It's a peaceful retreat for the lucky owner.
    #8 Fleur De Lys, Beverly Hills CA Home to Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, this French inspired mansion was listed for sale at $125 million. It's 45,000-square-feet and sits on five acres of land. The interior has marble, gold-embossed leather walls and gold-leaf crowned moldings, and additionally it looks quite impressive here!


    #7 The Manor, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles The listed price for the infamous Aaron Spelling Manor was $150 million, but the British, F1 Chief Bernie’s daughter, Petra Ecclestone got it for $85 million in 2011. The French chateau-style mansion is the largest private home in Los Angeles County with a bowling alley, tennis courts, two swimming pools, barber shop and beauty salon, a spa, an 18th Century-style garden, a parking space for over 100 cars and needless to say.. there is much more!
    #6 Fairfield Pond, The Hamptons, USA This estate was built by American business giant, Ira Rennert. It's value at $170 million makes it the most prestigious home in the Hamptons. Looking down at it here, it seems one would need a golf cart to get around it's compound and land.
    #5 The Pinnacle in Montana This luxury ski-lodge home valued at $155 million, is the largest property in the "exclusive billionaires-only private ski and golf community, Yellowstone Club.” It houses 10 bedrooms, heated flooring that stretches to the driveway, as well as fireplaces in all bathrooms, a huge wine cellar, an indoor/outdoor pool, gym and massage room.. Wow!
    #4 Dracula’s Castle, Romania: $135 million We can't believe the name for this property is Draculas Castle, but it's a Romanian castle so hence the name. The structure became a museum during 1980s but has since been sold privately. It has 57 rooms, 17 bedrooms and still retains its unique antique furniture. Would you like reside here?
    #3 Franchuk Villa, Kensington, London This London mansion valued at $161 million was formerly a girl's preparatory school and since restored into a Victorian estate. It has 21,000 square feet with 20 foot ceilings as well as a sauna, gym and movie theatre. In a dense city such as London this property is more than a luxury.

    #2 Villa Leopolda, French Riviera, France The villa was built by King Leopold II of Belgium in 1902 and was recently purchased by the Russian billionaire Prokhorov with the approximate value of $750 million. It has 27 stories, 19 bedrooms, and a rumored 50 full-time gardeners.. Amazing!

    #1 Antilla, Mumbai: $1 billion "Antilla" is said to be most expensive home to date and we think perhaps it's the most usual looking. It's a 27-story, 40,000 sq. ft. tower; and it requires over 600 servants to manage. The owner is a petrochemical businessman and fifth richest person in the world, Mukesh Ambani.. we are speechless!

    I'm a weirdo for castles. A trip to London to see the Tower of London, etc, is on my bucket list.

    I hate most mansions. The old ones are cool, but the modern ones are just tacky and dug.

    The final building is horrendous - all that money and such little sense/taste??!! The writer of the article also needs to learn how to use apostrophes appropriately.
