Living Large: The 25 Biggest (and Most Expensive) Houses in the World

By Jaime Morrison Curtis |

We recently shared 25 Amazingly Tiny Houses, where owners pared down to the essentials and by doing so, created peaceful spaces that exemplify the ideals of eco-friendly living, simplicity, and modern style. Now we’re taking a look at the world’s biggest homes, where no expense is spared and every luxurious whim is fulfilled — from odd (Candy Spelling’s room dedicated to gift wrapping) to oddly intriguing (at Bill Gates’ house music knows where you are and follows you from room to room). These homes offer features you didn’t know you wanted and could definitely live without. One owner thought a 2-car carport might feel a bit cramped so he gave himself a 6-floor parking garage. These are only a couple of the extravagant details that come with having one of the 25 Biggest (and Most Expensive) Houses in the World …

    while these sure are huge, I don’t think they are the top 25 biggest houses in the world — just damn large. right? what about all those other french chateaux? other palaces? etc?

  2. Andy says:

    Number 4 in the series is a mistake. That building is obviously not part of the palace that is shown in the link. As for the rest, it’s pretty random — some are not that big and others are just monuments now.

  3. Dillan says:

    How can number 1 be a house if it has parking garage? Its obviously not home to one person/family.

    Number 4 is not a palace nor any type of living space. It’s a mosque (Islamic equivalent of church) and its huge because tens of thousands pray in it every day, and during the holy months over 500,000 people are in it at any given moment.

  4. nurol says:

    No 4 caption is a description of the Nurul Iman Palace belonging to the Sultan of Brunei.

  5. Deb Ellioitt says:

    Yes, #1 was built by a wealthy Indian business man who wanted the parking garage to accommodate parking for lavish parties. I know there were problems with the building and not sure if he ever actually moved in or not.

    Yes the picture is incorrect, but connected on the grounds of the mosque is the kings Palace which they are referring to.
