World’s Most Expensive Home February 7, 2007

Built on 160 acres, this 53,000 square-foot stone and wood mansion carries a price tag of $155 million; making it the world’s most expensive home. 

Timber and real estate baron, Tim Blixseth, ranks No. 322 in the 2006 Forbes 400 list with a $1.2 billion fortune.  Developer and owner of the mansion which is located in the Yellowstone Club (a members-only, Blixseth-developed residential ski and golf resort near Bozeman, Montana), Blixseth believes it won’t be hard to find a buyer at that price.  In fact, he claims he’s already received interest in the home.

That tops the $139 million asking price for Updown Court in Windlesham, England, which was listed No. 1 in the Forbes.com list of the world’s most expensive homes in 2006.  And it also exceeds the $125 million that U.S. media mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump is asking for the renovated estate he owns in Palm Beach, Florida.

The $155 million fully furnished home comes with:

  • 10 bedrooms
  • a private gondola-like chairlift that will carry residents to the Yellowstone Club’s private ski slopes
  • an indoor/outdoor swimming pool
  • a home movie theater

Forget about who has the biggest yacht.  The emerging battleground for bragging rights these days is who will lay claim to the world’s most expensive home.

Anyone in the market for a new house? 😉
