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.
