Antilia is considered to be one of the most expensive homes in India and even the entire world, as it is only behind the Buckingham Palace in London. It is currently valued between $1-2 Billion and it is owned by the richest man in India, Mukesh Ambani, who happens to be the chairman, managing director, and the largest shareholder of Reliance Industries Limited, one of India’s most valuable companies. Today, The Most Expensive Homes will talk a bit more about this outrageously stunning residence that was built in 2010 and 27 stories and 400,000 square foot.
Regarded as the world’s most expensive private residential property, it is located on Mumbai’s Cumballa hills in of India’s most expensive addresses, the Altamount Road. Antilia was designed by the Chicago-based architecture firm, Perkins and Will while Leighton Holdings, a specialised Australian-based construction company was responsible for its construction.
Besides its impressive total of 27 floors, the valuable home also comes with extra-high ceilings. When it comes to size, and just for one to have an understanding of how massive Antilia really is, every single floor could be equivalent to an average two-story building’s floor. In addition, the house also has six dedicated floors for cars.
Antilia was actually designed to even survive an earthquake of magnitude 8 on the Ritcher scale. The house was named after the phantom island of Antillia and features remarkable architecture features and stylized design.
