The Super Rich Homes For Sale

Exceptional wealth mostly comes with exceptional expectations – especially when it comes to real estate. The world of the super rich is certainly full of superlatives, but just how crazy does it get ? As the old real estate adage goes, location is everything. With the nasty slump that the real estate market has been in finally showing signs of reaching an end, prices are starting to soar to unprecedented heights. Here’s a list of five of the wildest properties on the market.

Super Rich Homes

The Manor the Holmby Hills estate built by Aaron Spelling. Taking absurdities to extremes, the 5,250 square meter building includes three rooms for wrapping gifts, a tennis court, pool, and an entire wing that was once devoted to the wardrobe of Spelling’s wife Candy. Because, you know, she liked clothes. Listed at 150 million dollars (which would have made it the most expensive estate in the United States), the property was eventually sold to Petra Ecclestone, daughter of Formula 1 tycoon Bernie Ecclestone.

Versace Casa, Casuarina. Gianni Versace was admittedly an opulent man. The Mediterranean-style Miami beach mansion that the fashion mogul bought in 1992 for 3 million and spent 33 million renovating is for sale again. Versace lived there until his death in 1997, throwing extravagant parties, decorating special rooms for his friends Madonna and Elton John, and lining his pool with 24-carat gold. The price? 125-million dollars. More information about the Casa Casuarina.

Rutland Gate Mansion. London’s Hyde Park is easily one of the most desirable property locations that this fair earth has to offer. This property (read: royal palace) located at 2-8a Rutland Gate boasts former owners such as Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, and the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Originally conceived as four family homes, they were eventually all combined together to create this 5574 square meter masterpiece. Rumored to contain over 2 million in gold leaf decoration alone, the asking price is a quaint 300 million British pounds.

American Versailles. The name very nearly says it all here. But not quite. What’s missing from the picture is that this is actually a fixer-upper. Billionaire David Siegel’s enormous palace may one day constitute the largest family home in all of the United States – but it’s not finished. Whether you smile at the thought or cringe, an estimated 30 million dollars worth of work on the project remains incomplete. In light of the current recession, 10 million have been knocked off the price, leaving the current stick at 65 million dollars.
