World's Most Expensive Homes World's Most Expensive Homes 2007

Forbes has scoured the world again to find the most expensive homes in 2007. They are spread throughout all corners of the globe, including Turkey, France, and the United Kingdom, but the majority of the top ten is dominated with American mansions. A UK home takes the number one position on the list, but six of the top ten are American.

1. $138 million Updown Court - Windlesham, Surrey - United Kingdom
The world's most expensive home is located in Surrey, UK and is listed with Hamptons International. The recently built house is a mix of the old and the new, with the luxury and sophistication of a grand English manor combined with all the modern day technologies. Hampton's International says "Updown Court dominates its formal setting amid 63 sprawling acres of landscaped grounds, formal gardens and woodland."

Being the world's most expensive home means you have to make a mega-wealthy buyer's jaw drop. The Surrey mansion should impress even the pickiest buyers, with its heated marble driveway, several ballrooms, grand entrance ways, parking for eight limousines, a cinema seating 50, helipads, and the obligatory panic room for emergencies.

2. $135 million Hala Ranch - Aspen, Colorado - United States
The second most expensive home in the world is a 56,000 square foot ranch owned by Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz with sixteen bathrooms and fifteen bedrooms. The Aspen home is being sold by Christie's Great Estates and has an "indoor pool, a steam room, an exercise room, a regulation-size indoor racquetball court, a tennis court, a fishing pond, cross-country ski trails, and an enormous firepit. For the equestrian, superb facilities are provided by a heated haybarn and a heated stable."

Donald Trump Florida mansion
3. $125 million Maison de L'Amitie - Palm Beach, Florida - United States
When one thinks of excess luxury and real estate, the first name that often comes to mind is Donald Trump. So it shouldn't be a surprise to see the Donald on the list of the most expensive homes in the world. The New York billionaire brought the Florida mansion a few years ago at a bankruptcy auction for a little over $40 million. After giving the mansion a Trump makeover, the real estate entrepreneur has put a firm $125 million price tag on it.

The cofounder of Tommy Hilfiger, Joel Horowitz is selling his 210 acre property located on the tax free side of Lake Tahoe.

Halis Toprak is a Turkish businessman that created the Toprak Mansion which is selling for around $99 million. Toprak filled his 28,000 square foot mansion's every room with luxury. A Turkish sultan would not look out of place in the Turkish bath that has room for twenty people. Glentree Estates is selling the house.

The Pierre Penthouse

If you are very wealthy, but don't like mowing lawns, perhaps 3 floors of luxury overlooking Central Park is for you. Christie's Great Estates describes the NY mansion like this; "Since its completion in 1920, The Pierre has been recognized worldwide as the ultimate address for affluent visitors to New York. Rising forty-three stories above Central Park, the building has remained a grand hotel in every sense.. where gilded finery, antique treasures, discreet white-glove service, and impeccable taste have always been de rigueur."
