For most, a house with a couple of bedrooms and bathrooms is enough. Some of the richest people in the world, however, need thousands of square feet to separate themselves from their family members. The biggest houses in the world are more than just dwellings. They’re castles, palaces and mansions that require a map if you don’t want to get lost and forgotten.
Drool over these 40 biggest houses in the world (2018).
40.) Hala Ranch
56,000 Square Feet
Location: Aspen, Colorado, United States
Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan sold his Hala Ranch for $49 million to John Paulson, a hedge fund manager. It sits on 95 acres of land in the Aspen, Colorado area. In 2012, it was listed at $135 million, so one has to wonder how Paulson managed to get the keys to the home for much less.
The Hala House is bigger than the White House, with its 15 bedrooms and 27 bathrooms. There are a ton of amenities for the residents and their guests to enjoy such as reflection pools, fishing ponds, and sculpture gardens. There’s also gas pumps, a car wash, and mechanic shops to take care of all of Paulson’s vehicles. Outside the home are the tennis court, racquetball court, and heated horse stables. On top of that, the home has its own sewer treatment plant.
