Have you ever driven by a house and thought: man, these people must be doing really well? It looks like some private property doesn’t just stand out but would strike even legit millionaires with its luxury.

Your private tour of the world’ most expensive homes starts right now!

$2 billion Named after a mythical island in the Atlantic Ocean, Antilia stands 570-feet (173 m) tall in the poshest street of Mumbai.

The 27-floored building belongs to Mukesh Ambani, Indian business magnate, the chairman, managing director, and the largest shareholder of Reliance Industries Limited. He is the richest man in India, which is no surprise, because who else could possibly afford the most expensive private property in the world that’s worth $2 billion. The skyscraper has a 49,000-square-foot (4.550 sq m) plot and boasts more floor space than the French Palace of Versailles.

The impressive-looking tower has many double-heighted ceilings, so even though it just has 27 floors, it looks like a legitimate 45-floored skyscraper. And, all this luxury is home to the Ambani family of 5 and 600 staff members that take care of the property.

9 elevators allow the family and guests to travel between uniquely designed floors the interior of which was chosen by Mukesh’s wife Nita Ambani. he 6 distinct sections of the house symbolize earth, water, fire, air, sound and light.

Now, why would one possibly need 27 floors in their home? Well, given that 6 of those are fully occupied by a private garage of 168 cars including a pretty pricey Maybach and a private car service for all those beauties, it does make sense.

There is also a huge garden in the space with ‘W’-shape beams that support the upper floors. Not only are the hanging plants adorable, but also serve a practical purpose. They absorb sunlight and keep the house cool.

There are 3 helipads on the roof for those who prefer this mode of transportation and a private control center that occupies the air space floor. Entertainment anyone? There is a little movie theatre for 50 people, a recreation center that occupies two floors with swimming pools, yoga studio, dance studio and a juice bar. It’s no surprise there’s also a spa center and a ballroom with 80% of its ceilings covered in multiple crystal chandeliers.

What’s really cool is an ice room that has a snow generator that provides its visitor with easy access to Winter Wonderland any time of the year.

2.Villa Leopolda

$750 million Villa Leopolda is located in Villefranche-sur-Mer on the French Riviera. It got its name after King Leopold II of Belgium who once ownedit.

During World War I it served as a military hospital. The villa as it looks today was designed by American architect Ogden Codman, Jr. and finished in 1931. In 1955, Villa Leopolda became the set for Alfred Hitchcock’s movie To Catch a Thief. The estate occupies a territory of 50 acres (20 ha) and has a huge greenhouse, commercial buildings, heliports, outdoor kitchens, movie theater, gardens and a bowling alley.

There are 19 bedrooms in the house of rare marble with plenty of artwork inside. In 2008, famous Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov wanted to buy it for $500 million but had to break the deal because of the financial crisis. So the estate belongs to Lily Safra, the wife of Brazilian banker Edmond Safra.

3.Rutland Gate Mansion

$362 million The house that previously belonged to the Saudi Prince and the Lebanese Prime Minister is situated near Hyde Park in London. The house was designed by Albert Pinto. It’s the largest one-family house in London and as it went on the market in 2015 after the death of its owner it became the most expensive single home ever sold in the UK.

4.Four Fairfield Pond

$249 million Fair Field mansion was built in 2003 in the Hamptons, Long Island, New York state. It looks like it could be owned by the Great Gatsby himself, but it actually belongs to Ira Rennert, owner of the Renco Group.

5.18-19 Kensington Palace Gardens

$222 million Kensington Palace Gardens in London, one of the most expensive streets in the world, is called “Billionaire Row” for a reason.

Who else would afford a house at an average price of $44 million? And, some houses in this street with security checkpoints at both ends are worth way more than that. For instance, the estate at 18-19 Kensington Palace Gardens is worth $222 million. The construction of two Italian palazzo style villas here began in 1845. The builders used extra stone from the new Palace of Westminster to construct sections of the walls and finished their work in 1847. The villas had various residents and for many years were used as the Egyptian and Russian embassies and then became private property. In the 1990s, property developer David Khalili bought the two villas, merged them together and added a swimming pool and floors and pillars made of marble from the same quarry as they used to build the Taj Mahal.

It is currently owned by Lakshmi Mittal, one of the richest Indians and owner of Arcelor Mittal, the world's leading integrated steel and mining company. So, some people jokingly call it “Taj Mittal” now.

There are 12 bedrooms, a Turkish bath and a parking garage for 20 cars in the estate.

7.Hearst Castle

$191 million Another Californian estate stands tall on a hill in San Simeon. Hearst Castle is named so after publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst. It was designed by architect Julia Morgan and intended to be a family home for the Hearsts, but it all changed after their divorce. In the 1930s, it became the true center for social life. The visitors list included Hollywood stars of that time Charlie Chaplin, Cary Grant, Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, playwright George Bernard Shaw and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill himself.

They’d have drinks at the Assembly Room in Casa Grande, have dinner in the Refectory and watch movies at the theater. Then they’d retire to the guest houses of Casa del Mar, Casa del Monte and Casa del Sol. The estate has a total of 56 bedrooms, a wine cellar, air strip, an indoor Roman pool, an outdoor Neptune pool, and the world’s largest private zoo.
