1. Bill Gates
Worth: $125 million
If you’re the second richest man in the world, how much would your home be worth? a million? Ten million?…How about $125 million? I guess that sums up why he is the second richest man on the planet. Though, Bill Gates is not really a celebrity if you look from the main sense of it(the glamour and lifestyle), he is more of a subtle businessman, but the reason we have decided to include his Medina, WA state-of-the-art lakefront estate, Xanadu 2.0 is because Bill is famous enough as a philanthropist and successful business mogul.
His home features a 7-bedroom, 24-bathroom house spans over 66,000 sq. ft. and includes 6 kitchens, a 2,100 sq. ft. library with a domed roof, an exercise room with a sauna, separate men’s and women’s locker rooms, a steam room, and a trampoline room, an indoor/ outdoor pool with an underwater music system, a man-made stream stocked with trout and salmon, and a theater.
Also, there are other mind-blowing technological highlights which include rotating artwork and pressure-sensitive floors that ensure security knows where everyone is at all times. No wonder it’s at the number spot for the most expensive house.
