Château Louis XIV Is The World’s Most Expensive Home
The Château Louis XIV oozes opulence from every angle you look at it, featuring domed ceilings, old world décor with gold leaf moldings and marble inlays, tables sculpted from solid stone, hand painted frescoes, fine silks, elegant metalwork and many other luxurious details.
The palatial property has been in the making for three years, showing off marble statues, several fountains and even a labyrinth outside. We really can’t find the right words to describe this extraordinary chateau, that’s so amazing that someone paid a staggering $301 million to call this place home.
The buyer is still unknown, but after this incredible acquisition, we can now refer to the Château Louis XIV as the most expensive privately-owned home in the world right now.
On the inside, the new owner is free to wonder through the 10 lavish bedroom suites, 2 ballrooms, a 3,000-bottle wine cellar, meditation room, aquarium, indoor and outdoor pools, squash court, gym, movie theater and even the private nightclub. But wait, there’s more!
The Château Louis XIV also features an “indoor moat” and an underwater safe. Is it just me, or does this sound like a Bond villain property? Even most of the technology is hidden in the beautiful classic décor of the property.
The frescoes hide the air conditioners, an app controls the lights and water in the fountain, while the house has been outfitted with a super high tech security system, complete with 40 cameras. It’s not all for show, it’s also about safety and privacy.
