Seven Of The Most Expensive Apartments On Planet Earth
In his song, Good Life, Kanye West says, “having money’s not everything, not having it is.”
Kanye is a good person to listen to when it comes to the divide between the haves and have nots. He’s now a multi millionaire and very much part of the jet set but it wasn’t always the case.
Growing up in Chicago, Kanye could only have dreamt about the riches that awaited him.
The rapper is not the only one to prove that there’s nothing wrong with a bit of day dreaming so let us offer you an escape from the daily grind by showing off seven of the most expensive apartments on planet earth.
Who knows, you could be moving into one of them one day!
Sky Penthouse in the Odeon Tower
Monaco has long been a haunt for the rich and famous. Walk along the sea front and you’ll see movie stars, F1 drivers and rock and roll stars rubbing shoulders with titans of industry.
With so much money about, Monaco doesn’t exactly lack for luxury apartments but the Sky Penthouse at the top of the Oden Tower is the most expensive of the lot.
Not only is it 30,000 square feet, it has all the luxury you’d expect of an apartment that costs the best part of $500 million including 24 hour butler service and this stunning infinity pool with views across the south of France.

One Hyde Park Penthouse
One Hyde Park is about as luxurious as it gets. Set in the very heart of London, the exclusive development is home to some of the most coveted apartments in Europe.
The penthouse apartment in pavilion C has a city wing and a park wing and was put on the market for £75 million back in 2015.
It has five bedrooms, several living spaces, and a 165-foot hallway. The safety conscious need not worry as the glass is bullet proof and there’s even a golf simulator!

Penthouse Suite at the Pierre Hotel
New York is a haven for the super rich. Some jet in for short stays at five star hotels while others make their home in the city.
The sale of the penthouse suite at the Pierre hotel gave billionaires an opportunity to do both.
The massive apartment gives its owner a luxurious home right on top of Central Park as well as all the benefits of being in a hotel.
After initially being listed for $125 million, the penthouse was slashed to an affordable $63 million. What a bargain!

Penthouse, 432 Park Avenue
$100 million is more money than most of us will ever see in our lives. That, however, is how much the penthouse at 432 Park Avenue in Manhattan would set you back.
Right at the top of the tallest residential building in America, the 432 Park Avenue penthouse has six bedrooms and seven bedrooms.
Should the owner ever find themselves bored of the world class views over New York they can head into their own personal library whilst drinking wine from a climate controlled cellar.
