Forbes’s fourth richest man, Mukesh Ambani, his wife and three children are calling the worlds biggest and most expensive house their home.
The house is named Antilia, after the mythical island– has 27 stories, is 173 meters high and has 37,000 square meters of floor space — more than the Palace of Versailles. It takes more than 600 people just to operate and there is no other residence of such prominence anywhere else in the world.
There are places such as a health club with a gym and dance studio, at least one swimming pool, a ballroom, guestrooms, a variety of lounges and a 50-seater cinema. Three helipads on the roof and a carpark for 160 vehicles on the ground floor.
The house is estimated to be worth $1 billion.
There are no modern technologies for energy conservation used or any other moderation in displaying wealth.
