Have you ever thought of how much the most expensive house in the world cost and where it can be found? That is how the mission for today. We are today going to have a look at the 10 most expensive houses in the world and the ridiculous prices these houses come with and what makes them really unique.

Before we proceed, let me give you a gist. The most expensive house in the world can be found in India. Yes, you read it right. The most expensive house can be found in no other country other than India. It is really unique and we will delve into it as the post continues.

Ano so let move back to business as usual as we have a look at the 10 most expensive houses in the world;

9. 18-19 Kensington Gardens – $128 Million

First on the list when it comes to a look at the 10 most expensive houses in the world is the 18-19 Keningston Gardens. This is a house valued at $128 million making it the tenth most expensive house in the world.

This is a house that was designed by Philip Hardwick for Sutherland Hall Sutherland, and the first tenant was the civil engineer James Meadows Rendel. He occupied the building in the year 1852. This shows how old the building is.

Some might be wondering what makes this house really unique and you will be amazed this is a house that has 12 bedrooms, Turkish baths, an indoor pool and a parking space for 20 cars.

I know you might be insisting that it’s still too expensive a house. Kindly check out the previous owners and draw your own conclusion.

Previous owners of this most expensive house in the world include the de Rothschild family (early 1900s); The Free Poles (1939–45); David Khalili, art dealer(1995–2001); and Bernie Ecclestone, Formula 1 chief (2001–2004).

The Rothschild Family found themselves and this shows how unique the house is. This is one family that has been regarded as the richest family ever the world has ever seen.

Now the house is being owned by Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal but houses the princess of Jordan; Haya.

Since we haven’t found ourselves in the house before, the best we can get is to have a look at these pictures to have a feel of the inside;

  1. The houses you feature present a strong argument for these people who buy them, namely the fact that their enormous egos will not allow them to be incredibly self-centered and – ultimately – extremely insecure. People who try to find their identity through what they own are some of the most miserable and unhappy people on this planet. As is often noted, no one has ever witness a hearse towing a U-Haul with someone’s posessions.

    Ultimately, most if not all of the people who own these homes are miserable and unhappy, and why? Because there are, and will always be, people who are richer than they are. Sad, as it is the majority of the super rich who use most of their money to alleviate in part so many millions of starving and otherwise critically ill people the world over. Super rich? I don’t care, unless you use all the money you don’t need to help the most-unfortunate among us.
