A super luxury house in Hong Kong has set the bar as the most expensive house in the world.

The asking price is a staggering £13,676 a square foot for the home with a floor area of 4,661 square feet – equivalent to a £63.75 million asking price.

Nestling high on the exclusive Victoria Peak in Hong Kong, the home has a terrace that includes a full-sized pool with spectacular views over distant islands and mountains and the city’s harbour.

The home shattered the previous price per square foot record for a home – also set in Hong Kong mansion on the Peak sold for just over £62 million.

Other more expensive properties are on sale around the world – mainly in the United States – but their price is often based on an estate value and not price per square foot of living space.

Private nightclub

One of the most expensive homes awaiting a buyer is the exclusive 1011 North Beverley Hills, Los Angeles, California.

At an asking price of around £80 million, the home, once owned by media magnet Randolph Hearst has a private nightclub, a pool, gym and guest lodges.

President Kennedy and wife Jackie reportedly spent part of their honeymoon on the estate.

Celebrity homes on the market come at a much cheaper price – but still well beyond the reach of normal buyers holding down a job.

Singer and actress Jay-Lo’s former home is a snip at £25 million. That kind of cash buys a 200 foot waterfront, stunning views over Miami, Florida, and a whole lot of house including an 800-bottle wine cellar.

Across the pond in Milan, Italy, Santo Versace’s home is up for sale with a £41 million price tag.

Modest prices

At a more modest price is former Saint and James Bond actor Roger Moore’s luxurious home near Denham, Buckinghamshire.

With five bedrooms, a well-clipped garden and guest cottage, the estate weighs in at a modest £4.5 million.

Other superstar celebrity homes on the market include Robbie Williams’ country mansion and 70 acre estate in Wiltshire for £5.5 million and X-Factor judge Talisa’s five-bed mansion set in several acres near Potter’s Bar, Hertfordshire.

Talisa’s selling for £4.5 million after owning the home for less than a year.

If you want to follow in the footsteps of the world’s most expensive footballer, Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has his former home in Cheshire up for sale for just shy of £1 million.
