The most expensive house in the world is for sale

By Monica Boyd

It’s on the market for 1 billion euro (A$1.5 billion).

  • Villa Les Cedres is a 10-bedroom mansion surrounded by 34 acres of botanical gardens on a peninsular between Nice and Monaco. Real estate in the area is considered the most expensive in the world.

Neighbours of the extraordinary home include Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, the Ferrero family of Nutella fame, and Curt Engelhorn, the great grandson of the founder German chemical company BASF.

When David Compari-Milano bought liquor giant Grand Marnier Group earlier this year, the European distiller also acquired the historic villa. Now the property is for sale, with proceeds going to Grand Manier shareholders.

King Leopold II once owned the property, and Winston Churchill loved painting the exquisite gardens. Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, and Charlie Chapline are all said to have holidayed there.
