OhLaLa The World’s Most Expensive Home Is Made In France

OhLaLa The World’s Most Expensive Home Is Made In France

Screen-shot-2012-12-15-at-11-1.39.55-AM

There are some pretty expensive homes being built here in Los Angeles and Manhattan is not really the cheapest place to become homeowner but today a new record has been set, and it’s made in France.

A private home just west of Paris (near Versailles) was just sold for 275 million euros (about $301 million). This château is not even an original. It was completed in 2011 and designed to resemble a 17th-century French castle (without the leaky roof, the drafts, humid dungeons, potential ghosts, squeaky parquets and dusty attics with hidden treasures) at best here the only thing you may find in the attic is a lunch box left behind by one of the builders. Not so glamorous.

On the modern bright side this 53,000 square feet château feature a giant aquarium, home theater, underground nightclub, gourmet kitchen, wine cellar, a two-thirds-size replica of Versailles’ Apollo fountain … and indoor and outdoor pool, which (because of the protection of historical places) may not be an easy thing to built if you own an authentic castle #RichPeopleProblems.

So this home is simply called “Château Louis XIV” and was intended to be built by Louis XIV himself so he could have a place to ‘relax’, true story … unfortunately for Louis things did not turned out to be very relaxing and after his death in 1715 the land was left as is until 2008 when a business man finished le Roi Soleil’s vision.

If you do not have $300 million to spare you may have 2 minutes to virtually visit this home and look how pretty it’s gonna look this winter!

    It looks like the château of Vaux-le-Vicomte!
