Introducing the World’s Most Expensive Home
Nestled in the Indian city of Mumbai, the country’s commercial capital, is an ultra-luxurious property that is said to be the world’s most expensive home.
Owned by India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, the $2 billion home is named Antilia after a mythical island in the Atlantic Ocean and is spread across an incredible 60 stories.
Ass one would expect, it is littered with ultra-lavish features and amenities, including six whole floors dedicated to the owner’s cherished car collection, which includes a $698,000 Maybach, as well as a car service station on floor seven.
The mansion also has 3 helipads on the roof, 9 super-fast elevators, a 2-storey recreation center complete with gym, health spa, multiple swimming pools, Jacuzzi, and yoga and dance studios.
The building also has its very own mega-temple, several guest suites, a salon, an ice-cream parlor a private movie theatre that seats 50 people, a ballroom, and a ‘snow room’ where the walls spit out man-made snowflakes.
While every floor is unique, motifs of the sun and the lotus are consistent throughout the building with the use of rare materials like crystal, marble, and mother-of-pearl.
There’s also a sumptuous garden that lies in the space that holds the ‘W’-shape beams that support the upper floors.
It reportedly takes a staff of 600 to maintain the home, with an entourage room provided for security/bodyguards and other assistants to relax.
The 4,00,000 square foot building is located on Altamount Road in South Mumbai – or 'SoBo' - one of the most expensive addresses in the world, where real estate has a going rate of about $1,116 per square foot.
