Title: Most expensive apartments

Most Expensive Apartment
One Hyde Park penthouse
  • The four penthouse apartments atop Londons most
    luxurious address sold well before its
    construction finished. The buildings, developed
    by Candy Candy and funded by Qatars foreign
    minister, include eighty apartments designed by
    architect Richard Rogers. It features communal
    spas, squash courts, a private wine-tasting
    facility and a top notch security force staffed
    by former members of the British SAS. The
    building cost Â1.5 billion (around 3 billion
    USD in 2008) to develop.

La Belle Epoque penthouse
  • This Monacan apartment is perhaps best known as
    the apartment where Lebanese banker Edmond
    Safras life was claimed in an act of arson
    perpetrated by his nurse. Despite its grisly
    past, the penthouse at Le Belle Epoque (literally
    The Beautiful Era) has become not only the
    worlds most expensive apartment but also the
    worlds most expensive private residence. Its
    noteworthy amenities include a game room with
    billiards tables and arcade games, a Jacuzzi and
    spa, cinema screens hidden in the walls, a
    two-storey library and a media room with chairs
    that convert into beds. Its security features
    include a panic room with reinforced glass and
    surveillance cameras.

Most Expensive Homes Ever Sold
Donald Trumps Palm Beach mansion
  • The Donald takes pride in having sold this
    beautiful 68,000-square-foot mansion at a time
    when the real estate market is doing poorly.
    Trump purchased the mansionand the seven acres
    of beachfront it sits onin 2004 for less than
    half of what he sold it for.

Lakshmi Mittals Kensington Palace Gardens mansion
  • Steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal was widely reported
    to have purchased this property on one of
    Londons most exclusive streets for Â70 million
    (126 million at the time). As it happened, the
    Indian tychoon paid only Â57,145,967 for the
    mansionstill enough to put the mansion on the
    list of the most expensive houses ever sold.

Victorian Villa, West London
  • Purchased in February of 2008 by a Ukrainian
    businesswoman, this five-story Victorian villa
    was used as a girls school until it was
    purchased by developers in 2006. The luxurious
    residential dwelling has over ten bedrooms and an
    underground swimming pool. It also includes a
    gym, a sauna, a theatre and a panic room to be
    used in case of emergency. It was sold for Â80
    million (almost 159 million US), displacing the
    Kensington Palace Gardens home of Lakshmi Mittal
    as the most expensive house ever sold. With
    Mikhail Prokhorov supposedly reneging on a deal
    to purchase La Leopolda, below, it has retained
    that title.
