These are the ten most expensive homes in the world, and the people who own them
The number one spot has 78 bathrooms. Which is overkill, if you ask us...
You might think, what with the way the current housing market is, that a 3-bedroom in Dalkey would probably be somewhere on this list.
We can't say for certain that it didn't wind up at #11, but it definitely isn't in the Top 10 most expensive homes (which automatically discounts palaces, which are a different thing) on the entire planet.
According to CompareCamp.com, these are those homes, along with their price-tags, and who currently owns them.
We're gonna go out on a limb here and say none of these will be popping up on an AirBnb any time soon...
