Most Expensive Home in the World has 27 Floors, Ocean and Slum Views

The home of India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, in Mumbai. The $1-billion home, seven years in the making, is 400,000 square feet on 27 floors, all for a family of six. The building is named Antilia, after a mythical island. (DANISH SIDDIQUI / Reuters)

The home has a swimming pool and yoga studio. By some accounts, an ice room to escape the Mumbai heat, infused with man-made snow flurries. (DANISH SIDDIQUI / Reuters)

“It’s a stupendous show of wealth,” said Hamish McDonald, author of “Ambani & Sons: A History of the Business.” “It’s kind of positioning business tycoons as the new maharajah of India.” (DANISH SIDDIQUI / Reuters)
