Interesting article about the world’s most expensive house, built by the richest man in India to the tune of around US$1 billion.
It contains a health club with a gym and dance studio, at least one studio, a ballroom, guestrooms and a range of lounges and a 50 seater cinema.
There is even an elevated garden with ceiling space to accommodate small trees.
The roof has three helicopter pads and there is also underground parking for 160 cars, which will come in handy for guests at Ambani’s forthcoming housewarming party.
From the top floors of the 173m high property are spectacular views of Mumbai and of the Arabian Sea.
Sounds pretty swanky, and I’m sure it is, but the picture really surprised me.
The building is cool enough, but I expected it to be in the middle of a park-like estate with lawns and trees, etc. Very interesting…reminds me why my first home is in small town America where I can afford to live on four acres of land in the middle of town. As much as I love Asia in general and China in particular, the population density doesn’t allow you to stretch out. Only way to go is up.
