One might expect a giant mansion, but 1500 Hill Road is actually only nine thousand two hundred and twelve square feet, though it’s very big by average standards, especially in Hong Kong. It is still the smallest home on our list.
Very little is known about the house, as it has been constantly under construction, since it was purchased, it is assumed the home will carry the same modern white design as many of the other homes in the area, regardless of the interior of the home.
The exterior is sure to provide stunning views of the city and the lush forests around it number two Louie, the fourteenth home 301 million dollars. I cannot lie Chateau Louie. The 14th is my favorite home.
I mean just look at it. This is what luxury homes are meant to be: a flawless combination of old and new, though the home looks like it once belonged to a king. This mansion was actually built in 2009 to replicate some of the most luxurious historic buildings in France located only a few miles from Versailles.
It seems fitting the homes sold for 301 million dollars in 2015 to Mohammed bin Salman one of his many opulent homes and though the home really does look like an 18th century mansion. It has enough modern touches to really make your head spin.

Chandeliers, hang in nearly every room, giving a sense of grandeur that is hard to beat. The interior of the home is over 50,000 square feet, spanning several kitchens libraries ballrooms living areas and reception rooms.
However, the real fun can be found at downstairs. There’s, a spooky wine cellar that holds up to 3,000 bottles, and you might need to use quite a few of them every weekend, because the home also comes with a night club.
The night club has state-of-the-art, sound systems, dance floor and a bar for the full clubbing experience without even having to rent a lift. The club is also brimming with expensive art and statues, but that’s.

However, after the market crash in 2008, the purchaser backed out of the deal which led to a court case and having to forfeit his hefty 39 million dollar deposit Sarah, what kind of home could possibly be worth 438 million dollars well, in my opinion, villa leopolda is Worth every single penny, as I mentioned, the grounds are massive – include a garden with eight hectares of olive orange and lemon trees, which require 50 full-time workers.
To maintain there are 12 pools that span across the property, including two paired with each of the guest houses. The main home has 19 deluxe rooms each with an ensuite, bathroom and balcony. Of course, the home is a mix of exposed, wood and exposed stone which gives a cozy yet grandiose, aesthetic.
