#3 – Fairfield Pond – The Hamptons, NY ($220 Million)
This home is owned by another junk bond billionaire, but this time is Ira Rennert. Rennert has a net worth of $6 billion and spent $220 million to build the Fairfield Pond at The Hamptons. The house sits right on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and takes up a whopping 63 acres of land.
If you’re curious about what’s inside, get ready to feel poor. There are 29 bedrooms, 39 bathrooms, a 91 foot long dining room, a bowling alley, two basketball courts and much, much more. Let’s say that you have $220 million to throw around and buy the house, you’re still going to need another $400,000 each year just to pay the property tax. The tax on this house alone could pay for around 10 police officers in The Hamptons for an entire year.
#2 – Villa Leopolda – French Riviera, France ($750 Million)
If you want to hire 50 gardeners to take care of your home and need 19 bedrooms to sleep in, then I have the perfect house for you! The only thing is that you have to have more than $750 million to give to Lily Safra. The villa is a little over 100 years old and is still one of the best looking in all of France.
The estate got its name from King Leopold II from Belgium and overlooks the beautiful French Riviera. The owner, Safra, is from the country of Brazil and has the title of Socialite and Philanthropist. That basically means she has made millions through divorces and used her wealth to buy this mansion. It’s unlikely that she will ever move out of this home, which was ironically built for a mistress at the time.
