Have you ever wondered who owns the biggest residential houses in the world? Or how about the biggest house in the US? While many of these houses are in the places you would expect – California, Florida, the French Riviera…there are a few that you might not have guessed. One of the biggest is actually in downtown Mumbai! These are the 25 Biggest Residential Houses In The World!
Pensmore (Highlandville, Missouri)
Owned by Steve Huff, this fortress is is as tough as it is big. In fact, it’s meant to withstand any and every disaster imaginable.
The Haileybury House (Haileybury, Canada)
Believed to be the biggest house in Canada, this still unfinished mega mansion is quite remote. To get there you’ll have to travel about half way up to Hudson Bay from Toronto.
Fleur de Lys (Los Angeles, California)
This massive estate was modeled after King Louis XIV’s Palace of Versailles.
Xanadu 2.0 (Medina, Washington)
In addition to what might be included in many of these residential estates (massive rooms, luxury extras, heated driveways), Xanadu 2.0 has a swimming pool with an underwater music system. It’s Bill Gate’s house…what do you expect?
Updown Court (Windelsham, England)
This California style residence was at one time the most expensive private home anywhere in the world. Its heated marble driveway costs over $3 million just by itself.
