With pride, I present the most expensive home in Asia—it’s located in my beloved home country, Indonesia heehee the rest of the list contains properties in Hong Kong.
Price: $27.5 million
Location: Batam, Indonesia
This tropical private island has a house on it—which makes it a very pricey home, with a lot of land around it. Sultan’s Island is in Indonesia’s Riau archipelago, off the coast of the island of Batam and tantalizingly close to Singapore. Totaling 94 acres, the island is ringed with mangroves and small beaches. Listed with Cheyenne Morrison at Coldwell Banker Morrison’s Private Islands.
And below is the most expensive home in Europe... just took my breath away! Who has this kind of money?? I just hope whoever does, I hope he has a son my age—to fit into my future plan of “marry well” mwahahaha
Price: $122.2 million
Location: Windlesham, England
Your blood may not run blue, but with enough green you can still live near—and like—royalty. Updown Court is currently the most expensive residence in the world, costing about $50 million more than the priciest U.S. home. The brand-new property is totally over the top, with 103 rooms, five swimming pools and 24-carat-gold leafing on the study’s mosaic floor. There’s a squash court, bowling alley, tennis court, 50-seat screening room, heated marble driveway and helipad. All eight of your limousines will fit in the underground garage. Then there are the neighbors, who include the queen (at Windsor Castle) and Elton John. It is listed with Savills and Hamptons International.
