The World’s most expensive house

Got a spare $155 million, and you’re looking to spend it? One of the World’s most expensive houses is for sale, at a cool $155 million. The house, named “The Pinnacle”, is set on a mountain-top ridge and is set to feature it’s own mini-ski lift. The price is higher than Donald Trump’s estate in Palm Beach (a mere $125 million) or “Updown Court” in England, at an affordable $139 million.

So what do you get for your money? 53,000 square feet of floor space (that’s 160 acres) with the main house boasting 10 bedrooms, a home theatre, bowling alley, obligatory swimming pool and a huge wine cellar which can accommodate 8,000 bottles of wine and has a special area for wine tasting with designated areas for different types of wine. And for your guests, there are four specially built cottages. Also included is a garage, which is estimated will fit up to 40 cars at any one time. Work starts on the house this June, and the house is set to be complete within 14 months.

The house has been made of stone and timber, with hand-carved fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. All outdoor driveways, patios and walkways are heated to ensure you are kept toasty, no matter what the weather.

The house is situated in the super-exclusive Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Mont. The resort is so exclusive that not just anyone with money can buy – first, you must be invited to join. An initiation fee of $250,000 ensures that members are suitably well off, and you must commit to buying or building a property on the resort as well. Certain celebrities are ‘discouraged’ from applying for membership to ensure that the attitude remains good and that the resort retains it’s family-orientated view.

If you do buy, your neighbours will include Microsoft Head Honcho Bill Gates, Dan Quayle, golfer Annika Sorenstam and cycling legend Greg Lemond. In total, there is a limit on 864 propety owners, and current membership stands at about 250 at the moment.

    It would be nice if I could buy that house. But that house is only for the rich and famous.

    Dan Quayle was never president and Nill Gates can’t afford anything.

    I am trying to find a buyer for a fantastic OCEAN FRONT BEACH PARCEL with over 20 flat acres. The property is adjacent to a beautiful beach front golf course and world renowned resort near San Francisco, California. The property belonged to a famous American Family prior to the current owners buying it in the 1970’s. There is a big home, barn, swimming pool and many other amenities included. The value of each acre (subdivided value) could be as much as $1,800,000 if water is available, and it is (from the County Water District). The owners are willing to sacrifice it for $10,000,000 to retire nearby in a new home. Please call me if you know of any interested person.
