We all have an idea of what our perfect home would look like. Usually, huge properties and multi-storey mansions come to mind. Does the idea of having your own personal bowling alley interest you? Maybe the thought of 3 pools and a private gym grabs your interest? Whatever it is, we are sure you could find it in one of these extravagant homes. Take a look at a few of the world’s most luxurious and expensive homes.

At the beginning of our list, we have a home, with which, we are all familiar – Buckingham Palace. Although it is a palace, it is still technically a home so we had to include it on our list. According to Royal gov, this home fit for a queen has a total of 775 rooms. 52 of these rooms are reserved as royal or guest bedrooms and 188 are staff bedrooms. The palace also has a total of 78 bathrooms and 92 office rooms. Many important functions are held at Buckingham Palace so it is essential that there be a ballroom, state dining room and drawing room. The gardens are just as beautiful.Buckingham PalaceImage Source: Royal Government

 

Although Updown Court has a substantial number of rooms less than Buckingham Palace’s 775, there is nothing lacking from this home in Surrey, England. The 103-roomed mansion (Get Surrey) is fitted with luxurious roman-inspired bathing rooms, spacious gardens, a large kitchen, bowling alley and an indoor pool. There is even a tennis court placed in the gardens. All these over-the-top features were bound to attract some negative attention and, as a result, the mansion has been named ‘Britain’s tackiest house’.Updown CourtImage Sources: Get Surrey and Daily MailCastillo Caribe is situated in the Cayman Islands.
