Paris Mansion listed for $140 Million is world’s 2nd most expensive estate

A house is a structure of walls, right? Not for everyone. This explains the need for some of the most exclusive mansions to go on sale. The offing latest comes from Paris’ famed Avenue Foch that bears a $140 million price tag. This property is listed as the second most expensive residential property worldwide. Second to the $150 Spelling Manor in Beverly Hills. Built-in 1912 for the Duchesse de Montmorency, the mansion was then acquired by Antenor Patino.

The mansion spans as much as 28,000 sq. ft. and features 12 bedrooms, 12 baths, and four staff apartments. The house is dome up in 18th-century wood panels, marble fireplaces, and a humongous dining room by French painter Henri Rousseau. The interior also features crystal chandeliers, Corinthian columns, gilded moldings, and marble floors.
