Antilla- Mumbai, India. This 27 story building, which goes for $1 billion, is owned by a petro-chemical giant- Mukesh Mumbai. It is the most expensive home in history, believe it or not! The house has 400,000 square foot of interior living space, a 50-seat cinema, six floors of parking, and three helipads.
