Date November 17, 2017

Villa Les Cèdres is the most expensive house in the world. It's time to recount your savings, because this luxurious house is put up for sale!

The house we are going to speak about was a former olive farm, which was built in 1830 in the south of France, near Nice. The area is called Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. It is a resort on the promontory of Cote d'Azur in the sea, where it is possible to meet co-founder of Microsoft Paul Allen and musician Elton John.

According to Bloomberg, the price of the villa is $ 410 million. It should be noted that the prices of houses on the island start from $ 100,000. For example, Beyonce's mansion costs $ 200 million.

The villa once belonged to King Leopold II of Belgium. A total of 14,000 plants, mostly olive trees, have been planted on 35 acres. The oldest tree planted in this area is about 300 years old. In addition, there are 25 greenhouses, a pool of huge sizes and ... a lot of aesthetic pleasure. The house has a somewhat unusual sandy-pink appearance of the house and a bronze statue of Athena.

The area of the house is 18 000 square meters. The house has 14 bedrooms, several living rooms that are more like museums. The library stores 3,000 books. One of the books kept in the library was printed in 1640. Note that the furniture is not included in the price, but it can also be bought. The original price tag is so high due to the high cost of the land, the size of the house and its location.

The villa is undeniably beautiful. The landscapes are really gorgeous. It is possible to enjoy the Mediterranean resort of Villefranche-sur-Mer and the viaduct of the medieval city of Eze from the roof terrace. Besides, you can see the border between France and Italy in the east. Let's agree that the price is worth the house!
