Introducing The World’s 4 Most Expensive Homes

It’s always nice to dream and a dream it would be to live in one of the world’s most expensive homes.

Should you be fortunate enough to pick the winning numbers in a Euro Millions rollover draw or unexpectedly inherit a fortune from a super-rich relative you never knew about then you might be in a position to put in a bid for what currently rank as the four priciest properties on the planet.  

In a Top of the Pops style, we’re counting them down from 4 to 1…

  1.    Rudland Gate Mansion (valued at £300 million)

Situated in a prize location right near Hyde Park and formerly owned by a Lebanese prime minister and Saudi prince, Rudland Gate mansion was sold in 2015 for a whopping £300 million.

Containing 45 bedrooms, the 60,000 sq. ft. of floor space is comprised of a large swimming pool, industrial-size catering kitchen, underground parking and several lifts. It also possesses hand-carved doors, gold-plated taps and antique furniture.

  1.    Villa Leopolda (valued at £587 million)

Built in 1902 by King Leopold of Belgium, hence the property’s name, Villa Leopolda is idyllically positioned on the French Riviera and was once occupied by Bill Gates.

Stunning sea views can be admired by the building which has 29,000 square feet of interior space and manicured lawns and a swimming pool outside, not to mention 11 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. No other Villa in the world carries such an exceptionally high price tag.

  1.    Antilia (valued at £783 million)

Owned by Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and managing director of India’s most valuable company, over 600 staff members service Antilia where its various garage houses can accommodate more than 168 cars.

Capable of withstanding an earthquake measuring 8 on the Richter scale, it has a recreation centre spread over two floors where you will find a yoga centre, dance studio, Jacuzzi, health spa and a number of swimming pools.

  1.   Buckingham Palace (valued at £1.5 billion)

While we cannot see Her Majesty putting her official London residence on the market, that hasn’t stopped property experts from forecasting how much the property could potentially sell for.

Home to UK Monarchs since 1837, the first being Queen Victoria, Buckingham Palace has 600 rooms, including 19 State rooms, 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 78 bathrooms, 92 offices, a cinema and a swimming pool. It even has its own post office and police station and over 400 people work at the Palace!


While it would be impossible for us to improve your home to the extent that it then has a similarly sky high market value, we can significantly increase its resale value. Book an appointment with Orion Windows to find out how.
