The World’s Most Expensive House Is Now For Sale

You can have France’s Villa Les Cedres mansion for a cool US$1.1 billion.

An Olympic-sized pool, a rich history and a stunning, private, 35-acre botanical garden.

The Villa Les Cedres and all its trimmings could be yours for around US$1.1 billion, according to CNBC. As a point of comparison, the reported price tag of the Villa, built in 1870, is just below the value of the media unicorn DraftKings.

The mansion, situated in the billionaire-laden French peninsula of Saint Jean Cap Ferrat near Nice, is currently owned by drinks maker Campari.

It boasts 10 bedrooms, 30 stables, as well as a chapel. Its gardens have been deemed a national heritage site by France’s government, and it was once a holiday home for the King of Belgium, Leopold II. It has also housed stars including Charlie Chaplin and Elizabeth Taylor, according to CNBC. In the 1920s, the Marnier-Lapostolle family—which created Grand Marnier—snapped up the property.
