Towering over Mumbai, India’s “City of Dreams” this 27-Story House is now the largest home in the world. Taking over 7 years to build and worth an estimated, (insert Doctor Evil Voice) one BILLION dollars
Best known as Antilia, named after the mythical island in the Atlantic, this 400,000 square foot tower overlooking India’s cosmopolitan city has set the new standard in luxury living.
So what kind of luxurious features does a one BILLION dollar tower include? Let’s take a look at the numbers:
Let’s start with the garage. Antilia’s first 6 levels are PARKING! Large enough to hold more than 160 cars and believed to have a private BMW service station on the 7th level.
Atop this 27-story high-rise are 3 Helipads! You know, just in case the first two are occupied.
Since it would take an hour to climb to the top of this home, residents will enjoy the convenient luxury of 9 Elevators. Private elevators for the family, special elevators designated for guests, and of course service elevators for the servants and staff members.
A 50-seat theater room on the 8th floor complete with wine room, snack bar, and entertaining space is perfect for a Friday movie night with the family.
But for something a little less casual, a party in the home’s extravagant two-story ballroom should suffice. Complete with Crystal Chandeliers that equate for 80% of this room’s ceiling, twin Silver Staircases, and a private museum. This is a ballroom that would make history’s wealthiest kings and queens a little jealous.
Owner, Mukesh Ambani, must have been feeling a little modest when including only 1 state of the art, health club and luxury spa. But this isn’t your typical in-home spa. The indoor/outdoor “health level” features a lap pool and Jacuzzi, Yoga and dance studios, separate men’s and women’s changing rooms, and of course a juice bar/solarium complete with an unobstructed view of the Arabian Sea, and a towering overlook of one of India’s most dynamic cities.
Antilia also features some natural elements to this home. The home features 3 levels of hanging gardens as well as a room specifically designed to beat the heat of India’s sweltering summers. Said to create man-made flurries, and dubbed the “Ice Room” there is no doubt that the Ambani family will be chillin. Do not be fooled by all of the luxury, this intelligently designed tower can withstand an Earthquake of 8.0 on the Richter Scale!
As if this 400,000 sq foot house was not impressive enough, each room and floor uses materials not seen anywhere else, with a concept that spaces will blend into one another, giving the impression of consistency and flow, while at the same time displaying different influence and traditions.
The Ambani family is expected to move into this mega mansion, in early November. It is expected that Antilia will employ over 600 full time staff members to maintain this luxurious home in Mumbai, the Indian equivalent to New York City.
And the best part, this 27-story, 400,000 square foot home, with a staff of over 600 people, is all for Antilia’s…..5 Residents!
