There are extremes in any situation. In this case, the world’s most expensive mansions are a case of excess. The most expensive mansion is $1 billion. While many try to just pay rent, these millionaires could probably place another home within their acreage or lease out their 20 rooms to guests. Some do, but they are in the neighborhood of $11 million.
Just in case you want to see how the district compares, here’s the Washington Post’s round-up of mansions. The priciest is $12 million. Other “mansions” weren’t included because they didn’t necessarily qualify, like the White House, Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace.
At the end of the day, this luxurious lifestyle is a bit out of reach for all of us. But one can dream, right?
Or one can scoff at the overindulgence of it all, you decide.
