Price: $1.55 billion
Neighborhood: Westminster
Size: 828,820 square feet

Scoop: The Queen of England is the queen of real estate. 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’.



Price: $1-2 billion
Neighborhood: Cumballa Hill

Size: 400,000-square-foot
Scoop: 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-story 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.



Price: $750 million
Neighborhood: Alpes-Maritimes
Size: 18 acres
Scoop: Owned by Lily Safra, a Brazilian philanthropist, and widow of Lebanese banker William Safra, the 50-acre estate includes a massive greenhouse, a swimming pool and pool house, an outdoor kitchen, helipad, and a guest house.
