It’s located 25 miles outside of London. Among the estate’s neighbours are the Duchess of York, Elton John, and, at nearby Windsor Castle, the Queen. So, what exactly would you get for your money? Well, you know, just the basic:

* 103 rooms
* five swimming pools
* 50-seat screening room
* 24-carat-gold leafing flooring
* squash court
* bowling alley
* all-weather, floodlit tennis courts
* 58-acre estate
* 22 bedroom and bathroom suites
* Gate lodge
* estate manager’s office
* Private cinema
* Stables
* Heated marble driveway
* Underground garaging for eight limousines
* a shooting gallery
* 30 self-contained luxury

Again, apparently rumoured to be the most expensive house in the world. It’s located in Kensington Palace Gardens in West London, which has been bought by one of the richest tycoons living in Britain. For some reason, there’s really not that much information available about this property, especially compared to Updown Court. It formerly belonged to Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula One racing boss, who bought the home for £50 million as a surprise gift for his wife. The Kensington Palace gardens houses are dubbed ‘billionaires’ row. Nearby are Kensington Palace and the London home of the Sultan of Brunei. It consists of the former Egyptian embassy and a one-time annex to Russia’s embassy knocked together.

David and Victoria Beckham

Purchase price: £2.5Million
Location: Hertfordshire, England

The Beckham’s purchased this property in 1999, in a small town called Sawbridgeworth in Hertfordshire. The grade II listed 1930s Georgian style house is also known as “Beckingham Palace” because it’s reported that the Beckham’s spent £3million on refurbishing it. This 7-bedroom property is set in 24 acres, and is currently valued at £7-million.


Purchase price: $5million
Location: NYC

Celebs don’t get much bigger and richer than P-diddy. He’s well known for having an extravagant lifestyle, so no doubt he has extravagant properties to keep in line with his image. This is just one out of many properties that he currently owns. It’s a $5million 3bedroom apartment, overlooking Central Park. Now, you know someone’s rich when they pay $5million for a mere 3 bedroom apartment. I once saw a documentary on P-Diddy, and apparently he uses this property just for storing his clothes. I kid you not. Essentially, it’s a $5million clothing rack….apparently.

Bill Gates

Purchase Price: Approximately $2million
Location: Washington

Yes, the richest person in the world ladies and gentlemen. Don’t be fooled by the $2million purchase price, that was back in 1988, and just for the land. It’s now worth a staggering $125million; that’s the Bill Gates we know. It’s a specific lodge style house, it occupies 50,000 square feet of land. The house is located in the side of a hill overlooking Lake Washington in Medina, Washington. It’s noted for its design and the technology it contains
