If you ever wanted to live in the most expensive house in the world, it is now on the market.

Once the personal residence of a Belgian King (King Leopold II), this little villa named Les Cedres, located in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, southern France, includes 10 bedrooms, a ballroom, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, and stables for up to 30 horses.

The 35-acres of gardens surrounding the home include 15,000 plants and 20 greenhouses. It is all maintained by about 15 full time gardeners, who the seller hopes will be retained by the buyer.

Neighbors include British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and U.S. tech tycoon Paul Allen.

Les Cedres was owned by Suzanne Marnier-Lapostolle, who is part of the Grand Marnier liquor company.   The company was purchased by another beverage company, Campari, in March, and they have decided to sell this home, as Suzanne wants to “downsize.”

It is expected to attract international interest.
