But just which home is the most expensive house in the world; not as cut and dried as you would imagine.

1.  Antilla – $1,000,000,000

This is it. The one you’ve been waiting for. The grand finale. The one billion dollar home. We give you…Antilla, the actual most expensive house in the world…finally.

Located in Mumbai, Antilla challenges pretty much everything you’d expect about “what is possible in a home” or “what is possible for architecture.”  The 26-story house features six floors of parking, a health level with a jacuzzi, gym, or “ice room,” a ballroom level (for dancing?) several floors of bedrooms and bathrooms and even a four-story garden — because, yeah, we guess that’s possible.

 

The architecture is based on an Indian tradition called Vastu Shastra, which is supposed to be conducive to the movement of positive energy.  In keeping with this, each floor has not only a unique design, but an entirely unique set of materials or aesthetic design — meaning each room is meant to look like it’s from a different house.
