In 2010, Mukesh Ambani – the richest man in India, forth richest man in the world – completed work on the most expensive home ever built. Totaling $1 billion, the 27-story tower in Mumbai has more floor space than the palace of Versailles and employs 600 staff members.
Named Antilia, the exterior features a very modern design with asymmetric stacks of glass, steel and tiles. There’s also a four-story hanging garden, health club with gym and dance studio, at least one swimming pool, a 50-seat cinema, 3 helipads and a 160-car parking garage on property.
Just think, the home is just for Ambani, his wife and their three children! The family quarters are on the top floors – above the ballroom and many guest rooms – and include incredible views of Mumbai and the Arabian Sea.
I keep thinking you could purchase 1,000 million dollar houses for the cost of this one home. Incredible!
If you were building the most expensive home in the world, what would you build and where would it be?
