The 10 Most Expensive Houses in the World.

Architecture, House, 3D, Design  I am thinking about moving in a year or two but right now, I look.  I know what I can afford but I've been looking at the higher end homes, just to drool and see what they have.  They have so much that makes them just awesome.  I'd love to win the lottery but in the meantime, I just drool.

One I saw was in Washington state ran like 8 million for a place that is over 11,000 square feet and multiple acres of land. Even the places that run 2 million have a huge monthly mortgage payment, way more than I make per month.  It would take about a half or three fourths of a year to pay one month.

I wondered how expensive the most expensive places in the world run and they are not in order. 

1.  This 135 million dollar house is found in Beverly Hills, California.  There is a main house with several small houses scattered on 6 acres of land.  The main house has a 50 foot entry way, carved ceiling, a library, wrap around balcony, billiard room, family room, patio that can seat 400, art deco night club, two movie rooms, and a spa.  If you want to you could rent it for $600,000 per month.  This house has appeared in several movies including "The Godfather" and "The Bodyguard"

2. This 102 million dollar house, called the 'Fleur de Lys' mansion in Los Angeles.  This 12 bedroom, 15 bathroom house was influenced by a castle.  It has a 3000 foot wine cellar with tasting room, a double story library, ballroom, commercial kitchen, along with a spa, pool and tennis courts.  It was built in 2002 but sold in 2007 when the couple who built it, divorced.  this has also been featured in a couple so shows including an Audi Superbowl commercial.

3. Popping over to France, you'll run into the $750 million mansion built by Belgium's King Leopold II in 1902.  The 11 bedroom 14 bathroom place sits on 50 acres of land.  It includes an outdoor kitchen, commercial greenhouse, pool, and helipad.  it has also been featured in several films.

4. Back to Central Park in New York City, where you'll find a $45 million penthouse.  It has over 10,000 square feet.  The address, 15 Central Park West is considered one of the most powerful addresses in the world.

5. Over in London, you'll find the $89.4 million Kensington Gardens. It was purchased by an Indian billionaire who renovated it using marble from the same quarry as that used in the Taj Mahal.  The 55,000 square feet includes, 12 bathrooms, a swimming pool, ballroom and Turkish bath among other things.

6. Go over to Monaco where you can purchase a 35,000 square foot penthouse for $400 million.  It is at the top of a 560 foot skyscraper with a 360 degree view of the surrounding water.  It is only a couple years old.

7. If you have $1 billion available, why not look at a 27 story, 400,000 square foot mansion.  It's multi-story garage can hold up to 168 cars,  three helipads,  a home theater for 50,  gardens, guest suites, and a ballroom.

8. Of course, Bill Gate's house in Medina, Washington makes the list.  It's a 66,000 square foot complex valued at $125.5 million.  It includes and almost 4,000 square foot pool building, a 2,500 square foot gym, a just over 2000 square foot library, a just under 2,500 square foot reception hall with a garage that is just over 6,000 square feet.  All of those bigger than all the houses I've lived in.

9.  Head back to Beverly Hills to find the $195 million Mediterranean mansion.  Its 53,000 square feet includes 12 bedrooms with 24 bathrooms, its own bowling alley, theater, swimming pools, and a garage that can hold 27 cars comfortably.

10. In New York State, you'll find a 63 acre place in the Hamptons valued at almost $249 million.  The approximately 20,000 square foot house includes 29 bedrooms with 39 bathrooms, its own power plant, three swimming pools, a 164 person theater , bowling alley and more.

I'm trying to figure out why someone needs 29 bedrooms since most families are not that large but if they have the money and are willing to pay for it, why not.

Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear.
