The 27-storied Antilla, home of the wealthiest Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani is one of the most expensive homes in the world.
Antilla, the home of Mukesh Ambani, has been one of the hot topics. The 27-storied mansion was built with $1 billion. It is one among the most expensive homes in the world. Let us have a glance at what the specialties of this mansion has.
The 400,000 sq. ft. mansion is located on Altamount Road, one of the most posh areas in Mumbai. Though the mansion has only 27 stories, the height of it is almost 40 stories. This is because some of the stories are built in double the size of a single story.
Speaking about Antilla, Nita Ambani, the wife of Mukesh Ambani, said that this is the sole home they own on this earth. Earlier they were living at a home which was shared by his brother and mother.
The garage is so big that 168 cars can be parked easily. The garage is built in multi-stories. Besides this, the mansion has three helipads on the roof. It means that you can land in the home by air too.
Terraced garden, spa, lobby, etc. are some of the main attractions of Antilla. There are nine elevators in the lobby alone. While recreation center built in two stories remains the place for recreation, a temple for daily prayer of the family is built.
Antilla has other facilities like ball rooms, guest suites, a 50-seater theater, etc. For maintaining and cleaning all these rooms and home, there are sufficient numbers of staff as well.
Nita Ambani said to the Vanity Fair magazine that they are living in the upper floors as they wish to have more sunlight.
The Sun and the lotus are the two main themes visible everywhere in the mansion. These themes are repeatedly used inside the mansion in rare materials like crystal, nacre also known as mother-of-pearl and marble.
Now you have come to know why Antilla is counted among the most expensive homes in the world. However, interestingly, the name is related to an island in the Atlantic Ocean which existed only in myths.
