World’s most expensive home ever built is called The World’s First Gold House that is apparently at a secret location in Switzerland near the Italian border and sits on a lot measuring 2,442 square meters. That is luxury home built by Zug Switzerland’s exklusivHAUS in collaboration with Stuart Hughes, who’s best known for his Rolls Royce Phantom, a luxury yacht, and an Apple iPhone 4.
The completion of the home took five and a half years and cost $12.2 billion (£7.5 billion). What makes the house so very pricey is the over 200,000 kilograms of solid gold and platinum fixtures and fittings and the specially designed flooring throughout is made from meteoric stone with shavings of original 65 million year old T-Rex Dinosaur bones embedded in each tile.
The property boasts a living space of 752 square meters, 8 rooms, a 388 square meter terrace, a basement with a special stone wine cellar measuring 245 square meters and a garage large enough for 4 cars. [exklusivHAUS / Stuart Hughes]
