Top 5 biggest houses in the world


Welcome to the top 5 biggest houses in the world!

If we wanted to just make a list of the largest residences in the world, it would be full of palaces. The Sultan of Brunei’s 2,152,782-square-foot, the marble-laden palace would be at the top of the list.

  • But if we dismiss royalty, we get a number of mansions and villas that belong to the average billionaire. Well, the people who own these homes aren’t exactly average. But, they’re not next in line for the throne (at least not literally).

For our list of the world’s biggest homes, we tried to stick completely with privately owned homes, so we excluded Oheka Castle, Arden House, and some other Vanderbilt and Hearst homes, as they’re now a hotel, research facility, and the property of a university or parks department, respectively.

We scoured Google Earth to find some of the largest homes in the world. Get ready to feel like Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids.

Top 5 biggest houses in the world are:

  1. Antilia — Mumbai, India
  2. Biltmore Estate — Asheville, North Carolina
  3. Safra Mansion — Sao Paulo, Brazil
  4. Witanhurst London — England
  5. Versailles — Windermere, Florida

1. Antilia — Mumbai, India

Antilia tops the top 5 biggest houses in the world deservedly.

With a net worth of approximately $49 billion, Mukesh Ambani was named the richest person in India in 2018. He’s also one of the most affluent humans on Earth. The oil and gas tycoon can also brag about owning the world’s largest and most costly private residence. The $2 billion home known as Antilia — because, as you’ll notice, naming your home is obviously a thing for the uber-wealthy — is a towering, 27-story skyscraper situated in downtown Mumbai.

Ambani managed with architecture firms Perkins + Will and Hirsch Bedner Associates to build his personal skyscraper. Standing 550-feet high and entertaining 400,000 square feet of living space, the entire scheme took more than four years to finish. To limit repeating architectural elements, no two floors are alike in either floor plan or building material. The overall composition is based on Vaastu, an Indian architectural philosophy that’s similar to the Chinese Feng shui belief. Nine elevators carry individuals throughout the large complex, and the top floors of Antilia offer panoramic views of the Arabian Sea.
