While it’s not unusual for homes to change owners several times over the decades, there are some that stay with the original owners for many years. These may include ancestral homes or large estates that are passed on from one generation to the next.

Here are a couple of examples of top-dollar abodes with no plans to go on the market in the near future:

  • Buckingham Palace. The official residence of Queen Elizabeth II has around 775 rooms. It was recently appraised at around $1.5 billion. It is doubtful that the building will ever go on sale.
  • Antilia.  The most expensive residence ever built, in terms of the cost of construction, is the Antilia, a 27-story residential building. The $1 billion residence is owned by India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani.

Other notable houses with a huge price tag include Chartwell Estates.  This residence was recently put on sale in the United States.  The Bel-Air Mansion was listed at $350 million, making it the priciest home to ever go on the market in the U.S.

The Most Expensive Houses in the World

Bel-Air seems to be a hot-bed of expensive homes:

  • Prior to the Chartwell Estates listing, the Bel-Air Spec Manor was the most expensive home when it was listed with a sale price of $250 million.
  • The Manor at Holmby Hills, also in Los Angeles, listed at $200 million.
