Most Expensive House

It has just come to my attention concerning the first billion dollar home. The most expensive house is owned by India's richest man, Mukesh Ambani.

Mukesh Ambani is the world's fourth richest man and his new home includes everything from an underground car park to a gym, cinema and even a garden with an elevated ceiling to accomodate trees. There are 600 staff to support the house.

Ambani, his wife and three children have moved into the building which is named Antilia, after a mythical Island. 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.

The house was designed by U.S. architects using principles of Vaastu, Indian traditional geomancy akin to Chinese feng shui, to maximize "positive energy." No two floor plans are alike, and the materials used in each level vary widely, driving up the cost.

The reality is when I first saw the house I thought it was houses in India that have built on each other. I also can't see how it is worth or one billion dollars maybe one billion rupees. Also 600 staff to support a home sounds to much, to me. I think its sounds like Donald Trump stretching the truth.
