10 of the Most Expensive Residences in the World

We’ve seen properties that wowed us and even left our jaws hanging in luxury real estate, but a few billionaires always raise the stakes, separating the wealthy from the super-wealthy.

They frequently draw the boundary between what we may consider to be merely excessive, acceptably opulent, or even quaintly eccentric, and what requires a completely new classification as indisputably, unambiguously mad. Within this latter group, we may see some of the most costly houses in the world, including the United Kingdom, the United States, France, and India.
