World's priciest house sells for £200m

A french chateau has become the most expensive house ever sold, at an extravagent £200 million. Situated between Versailles and Marly-le-Roi, the sale price of the beautiful estate beat that of the previously priciest - a £147 million London penthouse.

Despite the eye-watering price tag, the new owners do get a fair amount for their money. The newly renovated property boasts:

  • 57 acres of private walled gardens
  • a ballroom
  • an underground nightclub
  • a wine cellar
  • a squash court
  • a home cinema
  • an underwater room complete with fish inside the waterfilled walls
  • real gold features
  • solid marble floors
  • hand painted ceilings intricate murals inspired by the Sistine Chapel
  • 57 acres of walled gardens

Mind you, despite an enviable list of finishing touches, £200 million is still a terribly big price hike compared to the average price of a property in the UK of £200,000... and 57 acres is an awful lot of grass to mow. Maybe it's for the best that this property is a one off!
