The $1 billion House (Most Expensive House In The World)

Most Expensive House 2010, The $1 billion house

Forget the previous most expensive house in the world back in 2007 and the Most Expensive House In The World 2008. They’re old news, and you’ll find them somewhere in the history books now.

There’s a new player in town that’s taken the property game to the next ridiculous level of lunacy.

Yes, you read correctly, the $1 billion house, that’s not Rupee or Yen, that’s one billion U.S dollars. India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, has completed the development of this his new home in Mumbai that currently has an estimated value of $1 billion. The building (I feel weird calling it a “house”) has been appropriately named Antilla after a mythical island. Well, it certainly doesn’t look normal, and you wouldn’t expect it to for $1 billion.

Mukesh Ambani’s net worth

Mukesh Ambani

Forbes estimated Ambani’s net worth at $22 billion, making him the 5th richest person in the world. Reliance Industries was founded by Mukesh’s father, Dhirubhai Ambani, in 1966, and is India’s most valuable firm by market capitalization.

Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Group is India’s largest private company, with interests in oil, retail and biotechnology. The 50-something-year-old became the country’s first rupee trillionaire.

Before the $1 billion house was built, Mukesh Ambani and his family lived in a 14-storey building. Apparently 14-stories just wasn’t enough space for him, his wife, his mother, and his 3 children. I imagine they were tight for space. Who can blame them?

What will $1billion get you?

I personally can’t imagine what you could possibly spend on a house that would make its value $1 billion. One thing is for sure, I’m sure it’s filled to the brim with all the lavish extras one would expect, like gold toilet paper holders, which I imagine are worth more than my salary.

This is all speculation, but apparently it has the following…

  • A total of 27 floors
  • 4,532-square-metre plot
  • A car garage that has the capacity to hold his personal car collection of 168 cars
  • An in-house car service centre
  • The house is made entirely of glass and is 570 feet tall
  • 50 seater cinema
  • Several swimming pools
  • Two-storey health club
  • 600 members of full-staff
  • Double height ceilings
  • Ballrooms
  • Crystal chandelier ceilings
  • Retractable stages
  • Multiple “safe” rooms
  • 3 helipads
  • The four floors at the top, that will provide a view of the Arabian Sea and a superb view of the city’s skyline, will be for Mukesh, his wife Neeta, their three children and Mukesh’s mother Kokilaben
  • According to the plan, two floors above the family’s residence will be set aside as maintenance areas, and on top of that will be an “air space floor,” which will act as a control room for helicopters landing on the helipad above

The question which remains unanswered is, “what the fuck?” Is all that really necessary (rhetorical question)? I wonder how many of those precious square feet will actually be touched by his feet. Clearly, I’m just jealous. Anyways, without further ado, this is what a $1 billion house looks like…

Taylor wrote this on 2008-01-15 18:26:48 I hate all those people that say " awww. the poor homeless people!" First, they should get a job if they are poor and/or in poverty. quit mooching off of the government... Why do we feel sorry for these non-working people. Disabled people get plenty of money so don't argue for them. There are plenty of jobs in freaking India...GET ONE. C0ngrats to the dude who built this house. He deserves it for working so hard to get the money to pay for it. BTW, you people that are arguing that he should divide the money,

You are a fucking idiot. plenty of jobs in india? do you actually have any grasp of what it means to live in poverty? do you think people who are starving in third world conditions and simply sitting around sponging off the government? Piss off and do your research properly before making such uneducated offensive remarks!

What you people don't get is that in India most people has to take care of their family instead of going to school... this way they cannot earn that much money on their own.
Of course it's his money, and he may do anything he wants with it. But by donating it he could have given millions enough food, and then making more children go to school and earn money.

It's his money, it's his decision what he spends it on. I'm confused why so many are saying that he should donate money to charity - do you know that he doesn't? I wouldn't be surprised if he has given more to charity than on this house.

Hanee 20th April, 2011 @ 10:20

It's HIS money, the same way my money is mine and the same way all your money is yours!!, so what Mr Ambani does with his money is his business and no one elses.
If he can afford to buy a $1bn house then so be it!!!!
What he does with his money is up to him... I don't understand how people can comment with out actually knowing what he contributes and what he doesn't.
I can imagine the tax he pays on his earnings would help the country alone.

Well 1st I think it's ugly, mayb OK on the inside,looks like a lego building.I'd rather have Updown Court England for £70mil (check that out) Sorry I can't agree w/most of U. When people R this rich it just shows how overpriced their products must B & how little people R earning, working hard & they can't even make a liveable wage.U may not have liked British rule but they brought India out of the backwaters & it went downhill after they left.It mayb rising now & will prob B richer than UK & even US,as it looks like the rising nations R China,India & Brazil.I wouldn't think it would have much of a resale value but as U say, he has so much money,even if a quake took it down,he can rebuild. I wonder what type of companies can afford to give them ins & policy, must B millions a year.I can only hope he follows in the footsteps of Oprah,Bill Gates, Warren Buffet & gives most of it away.Nuff said,Cheerio.

The house looks like it wont stand for long, I don't like it. He is wealthy, bill gates is wealthy to, but you guys need to find out how rich the rothchilds are, thay had £200.000.000 in the 17th centry and there estimated wealth now is £500 trillion, I was going to put it down in numbers but I don't know how to, so i thought trillion would do. oh by the way you may not know this but the rothchilds and 12 other familys own the world and everything on it including you and I.
Go read and research it.
I seem to have read god gave us the land in trust, so how does anyone own it? and I believe he said he will return and rule earth for a 1000 years.. I would not like to be a richman not having done lots of good with it! when god returns! and what ever we do on this planet of his makes him even more gloriuse.

This is in response to True's comment on bill gates. he doesnt donate money because he cares. He donates so the government doesnt tax the hell out of him. He is advocating a mass reduction in the human population. Same goes for the rich in general when it comes to charity. Sure many actually care but they HAVE TO DONATE. why is it so hard for people to figurw this out. It literally saves them tons of money as apposed to getting raped in taxes. Plus there are many charitable tax scams going on.

I think the value is virtual and have no impact to hungry or poor. Even the cost money would have served families who helped build this tall tower. And off-course it can be seen from distance. After 1000 years people of india may look at it as something big built after taj mahal and feel proud.
My concern is does that building serves the purpose? To me its defeating the purpose. If i have money i wouldn't live in such a scary structure. Just my thought.

MUKESH AMBANI: I have some questions for you:

Can you live as a regular person without being isolated?
Can you guarantee your next day of life?
Are you immortal?
How quickly can you lose all this?
Do you know where you are really going?
Are you God? No, then the present is lucrative, but the future is bleak!

Ambani: I have more than you -- for when my Father ask me, "My son, are you ready?" There will be no hesitation. Can you say this? What will you say: Oh, father: not yet, I have it all here and you are going to take it away." The thought of my being in the same position and not being willing would make me cry harder.

Avan 12th December, 2016 @ 11:57

It is his house, built and furnished with his money, so why should we worry about what is right or wrong. Now coming to the matter of taste, if opulence is what he wants, well he has got that in spades in this monster of a building that is ugly and unpleasant to see. And if he needs such props to be happy, that too is his own business, but a person who can be contented with the simplest things of life or even to having nothing at all is the real happy man because he has learned to be indifferent to either pleasure or pain and is not chained to anything and thus he has conquered himself and is the master of his soul, while others are just slaves to their desires and so no matter how rich, are still poor. But those are very rare and evolved souls and high up on the spiritual path where all human beings will go one day after endless rounds of births and deaths after having learned lessons from life and finally having found the eternal truth.
But we ordinary folk are still a long long away from that. And that is the only reality.The rest is all illusion.

I think the house looks pretty fake, but if that truly is the home- how “marvellous.”
It’s great to have tons of space and would be a blessing to have staff working 24/7.
With much room to make income. (:
I wish I was this rich.
Even as a sociallable call girl with high class, most the worlds population could never afford this. It would be amazing to have as an asset.
I can say clearly, the banks would buy this for a family of credit cards with very large limits.
I’m sure of it. They would probably use it for bankers needs or some corporations assets.
Nathaniel doesn’t even have this and he had an unlimited credit card with acceptance and processing. I wish I knew how to create credit cards from scratch. I would love to death to have an asset as great as this. But then again, I really don’t need that much space.
I would ask astronauts if it stood out!
Have a marvellous time with your beautiful home sir. I hope you really get to keep the treasure, and that your life is abundant and prosperous. Your a real gem. I hope you get to have your cake and eat it too :)
Beautiful home idea. It’s just tremendous.
