When we think of most expensive properties in world then we think of Paris, New York, Londor or maybe Be Air in California BUT can you imagine that you are not looking in the right place?
Yes, the most expensive home in the whole world is in INDIA and called AntiliaNita & Mukesh Ambani’s Residence in Mumbai – Xanadu of Mubai
Antilia is named after a mythical island in the Atlantic Ocean. It is a 27- storey building but since some ceilings are double-height, it’s closer to the size of a 40- storey building as it is 570 feet high.
Lets talk about some Facts!
The first six floors of the structure are actually parking lots — with room for 168 vehicles. (And we thought Prince’s home with its 44-car parking had ample room for vehicles.) Of course, there’s a service station for cars on the seventh floor.
Next, you’ll find the lobby — with NINE elevators. Naturally, there is a ballroom. Its ceiling is comprised mainly of crystal chandeliers. The residential part of the home — the top six floors — is designed along the lines of the Lotus and Sun.
There is also a home theatre that seats 50. There is a salon. And how could this home ever be complete without an ice cream parlor?
Antilia helps beat the heat
The grimy Mumbai summer takes some getting used to. But for the Mukesh Ambani and his family, there’s a snow room to help them beat the hear. The walls of this dedicated room in the mansion spit out man-made snowflakes.
