Historic Hearst Mansion Put On Market For $165 Millionmore big
BEVERLY HILLS, CA - JULY 10: The gated entrance is closed to the Beverly House mansion of William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies after the residence was put on the market this week for $165 million, the most expensive listing in U.S. history July 10, 2007 in Beverly Hills, California. The home, built in 1927, includes four houses, an apartment, and a cottage on 6.5 acres of land with three separate pools, 29 bedrooms, a movie theater, and a disco. Hearst bought the mansion in 1947 for about $120,000. Twenty years ago, the house went on the market with an asking price of $25 million, one of the highest at the time, but was not sold. So far, no U.S. home sale has broken the $100-million mark. John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy honeymooned at the estate in 1953 and later used the mansion as the West Coast campaign headquarters for the Kennedy presidential campaign.

In this world, realty has been nothing but upping the scales on the price, especially the ones that are owned by celebrities. The properties' net worth are always increasing provided that the owners have made their mark on history. However, there are some estates, especially one of the three most luxurious ones worldwide, are worth millions of dollars that every lavish person would very much like to get their hands on. Here are some of the most lavish estates in the entire world that are owned, ideally, by billionaires.

ANTILLA, MUMBAI

This real mansion is owned by the fifth richest man to ever walk the earth: Mukesh Ambani. He is the head of the Mumbai based petrochemical gigantic Reliance Industries that earns up to about $43 billion and an under construction 27-storey skyscraper located in Mumbai, according to Oddee.

This estate costs a whopping $1 billion, making it the most expensive home property in the world. According to Luxury Homes, it has 27 floors located within 400,000 square feet, houses 600 staff to maintain the property, has several floors of bedrooms and bathrooms, six stories of parking space, a four-story garden, a health floor, a two-story recreation center, a fitness center, three helipads on the roof, and an "ice cream room".

This estate is also owned by another billionaire named Mikhail Prokhorov who is the owner of the NBA basketball team Brooklyn Nets. This property costs around $72 million and is the most expensive one anywhere in Europe. It was initially established by King Leopold II of Belgium during the year 1902.

This property employs 50 full-time gardeners, occupies 20 acres just for a garden that houses olives, oranges, lemon, and cypress trees.

It has 123 rooms, an indoor skating rink, several pools, three kitchens, sport complexes, a private orchard, and a bowling alley. Furthermore, other parts of the house are very unique, such that you would not find them in other abodes such as the doll museum, a room for the sole purpose of wrapping presents, and one whole floor that serves as a closet. Overall, it has 11 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a barber shop, a salon, and spa. The property costs at a whopping $150 million.

THE HEARST MANSION

One of the greatest films to ever grace the screen was that of "The Godfather". As you all remember, parties inside the film were shot inside a very lavish mansion owned by lead family in the story called the Corleones. The Hearst Mansion is that estate that I am referring to. Nowadays, it costs $165 million and has amenities such as 29 bedrooms, a disco, three pools, and a movie theatre among many things. In fact, President John F. Kennedy spent his honeymoon on this lavish estate.
