World’s Most Expensive Homes


For the third year running, Forbes, the source for all things rich, has compiled a list of the priciest pads on each continent, excluding Antarctica, which is not home to, well, any haute homes. The list only includes homes and apartments, not whole apartment buildings or expensive plots of land. Topping the list is a $165 million estate in where else? Beverly Hills. Sitting on only 6 acres of land, the 75,000-square-foot house, once owned by newspaper mogul William Randolf Hearst, has 29 bedrooms and 40 bathrooms.

To catch a glimpse of the world’s second most expensive estate, hop in your Falcon 7X and head to Brasov, Romania, home to the $140 million Bran Castle. One home to prince Vlad the Impaler, the inspiration for Count Dracula, this 17-bedroom castle, built in 1212, sits on 20 acres.

The third home lays in the bucolic countryside of England. The $138 million estate in Windelsham, Surrey, has 103 rooms, making it even larger than Buckingham Palace. For a complete list, visit Forbes.
