The world's most expensive homes

Ransom Riggs

Who says the real estate market is cooling off? Just this week in Beverly Hills (predictably, perhaps), the highest asking price ever was set for a home newly on the market -- formerly the LA residence of newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst (that's right, Citizen Kane himself). Boasting 29 bedrooms, three swimming pools, tennis courts, its own movie theater and a nightclub, the six acre estate is going for $165 million. It joins the upper echelon of an elite club of uber-expensive homes around the world, including Saudi Arabian Prince Bandar's ranch compound in Aspen, going for $135 million (no takers yet).
