Living in luxury seems like a dream, an aspiration and as luxurious as it gets it can always be even fancier. The question is how much is too much? And, are these homes even good investments or simply just to spend some extra cash lying around? Well, we have the scoop on just how much people are willing to pay for the most expensive homes on today’s market.
The ONE, Bel Air
This brand new mansion is the first giga-mansion and is priced at a whopping $500,000,000. This 20-bedroom compound sits on a Bel Air hilltop and includes uninterrupted 360-degree views. The home has taken 7 years to create and includes a 5,500 square-feet master suite, 30 bathrooms, a 30-car auto gallery, 5 swimming pools, a 36-seat movie theatre, a 6-lane bowling alley and of course, a nightclub.
Middle Gap Road, Hong Kong
This home has been on the market for over a year and there are still no takers and no price drop. This mansion is run-down and dingy, to say the least. The $447 million price tag is a bit much that’s for sure. However, as we know its about location location location and this dump lies on the priciest real estate known- the gated Middle Gap Road community which formulates part of Hong Kong Island’s The Peak neighborhood.
Bubble Palace, France
Pierre Cardin’s $390 million home is a sight alright, and not in a good way. The cluster of pink upturned flower pots that overlooks the Mediterranean sea took 14-years to build and has 26 barnacle like-pods. Multiple swimming pools, 10 bedrooms, and a 500-seat amphitheater.
Gateways Canyons, gateway, Colorado
This stunner is priced at $279 million. This massive compound is built in a tiny town west of Aspen and has been added to over the years in acreage. It includes a 22,000 square-foot house referred to as West Creek Ranch Residence. Additionally, a 72-room full-service resort and spa is located on the property as well as a car museum that boasts the owners 55 car collection. Oh, let’s not forget the grass airstrip, airplane hangar, and two helipads.
