This house is said to have everything – things you can imagine, things you can’t imagine, and things you never thought to imagine but are now imagining because they sound like the greatest thing you’ve ever heard of. It is based on unbelievable architecture and construction work. At a billion dollar, Antilla is definitely the most expensive house in the world.
