Your blood may not run blue, but with enough green you can still live near—and like—royalty. Updown Court is currently the most expensive residence in the world, costing about $50 million more than the priciest U.S. home. The brand-new property is totally over the top, with 103 rooms, five swimming pools and 24-carat-gold leafing on the study's mosaic floor. There's a squash court, bowling alley, tennis court, 50-seat screening room, heated marble driveway and helipad. All eight of your limousines will fit in the underground garage. Then there are the neighbors, who include the queen (at Windsor Castle) and Elton John. It is listed with Savills and Hamptons International.

Sorry, but, this is old news. This is not the most expensive home in the world. The new one is.....The Villa La Leopolda in Nice, France: $ 398,350,000. This is listed on this site as Bill Gates house. So, now it's the former home of Bill Gates, but now belonging to really rather rich Roman Abramovich, the Villa La Leopolda in Nice, France would set you back roughly £250,000,000 ($ 398,350,000 ). Its 10 acres of lush, garden-filled grounds require an astounding 50 gardeners to look after it along with the best home insurance that money can buy.

Gates never owned La Leopolda.

Really expensive houses rarely make it into the public eye. Think Mittal's house at Kensington Place or Paul Allen's compound on Mercer Island.

In October 2011, it was announced that the property had been sold for $55M (significantly less than Spelling Manor at $85M; Trump's Maison l'Amiite at $95M; Sandy Weill's NYC Penthouse at $88M, etc.)
