Studio apartments have been offered for sale at $3 million in Hong Kong so it’s hardly surprising the city could be home to the world’s most expensive house.
On the market since 2012, this four-bedroom four-bathroom 4,120-sq.-ft. “beautiful British style townhouse” at 110 Repulse Bay Road can be yours for $87.3 million. Realtors Engel & Völkers insist that’s not a typo.
The house’s price means that it costs roughly $21,190 a square foot. By contrast, the 38,000-sq.-ft. Bel-Air mansion described by Forbes in January as “the most expensive home ever listed in America” was put on the market for just $6,560 a sq. ft.
