What does the world’s most expensive house look like? It’s got 10 bedrooms, an Olympic-size swimming pool, 30 stables and a private 35-acre botanical garden which is considered a national heritage site.
The Villa les Cèdres mansion located in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat near the French city of Nice, also has a chapel.
And of course, history.
Leopold II, the King of Belgium, used the Villa Les Cèdres as a holiday getaway, as did some stars like English filmmaker Charlie Chaplin.
It should not be surprising then, that estimate values for this grand property built in 1870 range from $230 million all the way up to a billion dollars.
