The world’s most expensive house – Paris chateau
Chateau Louis XIV, a 50,000 sq ft palace that sold for £200m
A mansion outside Paris has fetched a world record price of more than €275 million ($417 million) with Chateau Louis XIV sold to a Middle Eastern buyer.
The chateau was built as an exact scaled down replica of the Chateau de Versailles
Christie’s International Real Estate was involved in brokering the deal for Cogemad which developed the palace, according to Bloomberg.
The villa is in a 23-hectare park between Versailles and Marly-le-Roi.
It took three years to construct, according to Cogemad’s website. -www.vijayrampatrika.wordpress.com/?p=12607
