The most expensive home in the world has been put up for sale. Located in the south of France, the incredible estate comes with a €1 billion ($1.1 billion) price tag.
Villa Les Cèdres was built around 1830 and was once home to Belgium’s King Leopold II. It is situated in the exclusive town of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, near Nice.
The current owner of the 10-bedroom property, which has an Olympic-size swimming pool, is Suzanne Marnier-Lapostolle, a member of the Grand Marnier family, who is “looking for something smaller”. The house has been in the family, famous for cognacs and liqueurs, since the 1920s.
The property boasts 35 acres of manicured lawns, a ballroom and stables for up to 30 horses. The same man who designed the Eiffel Tower’s gardens also designed the grounds of Le Cèdres.
