15420 Windmill Pointe Dr, Grosse Pointe Park, MI 48230 MLS# 29062103 - Zillow

This old home is the most expensive in the metro area, however.

Its price also shows the decline of Michigan. 10 years ago, that house would've gone for $20 million or more.

This website shows some of the most expensive, and most best looking houses around D.C., MD, and VA!!!

The most exspensive house on this web-site is in D.C at a cost of $$$49 million!!!

In Greenville, NC I believe it's $3 million!!!
Well, since I don't live in the city, it's hard to answer this question. I would say there is probably a house around my area for a couple of million dollars which would be the most expensive.

For me, just because a house is expensive does not necessarily make it a desirable house. I would definitely prefer something with an old world charm, and plenty of ACREAGE to go with it. If I had lots of money to spend on a residence I would be far more concerned with security and location than price. An old farm house way out in the middle of nowhere would be just perfect, IMHO.

and the second...

2. Ira Rennert's massive $100+ million dollar 100,000sq ft mansion in The Hamptons is the largest home in the United States:
Bill Gates House in Mercer Iland Washington cost over a 100 million to build Its over 100,000 square ft also.

Versailles is beautiful - I've seen it in person, and it's awe-inspiring.

However, that tacky, over-indulgent, over-the-top excuse of a home is just more proof that money cannot buy class.

I've seen this mansion in the Oakland Hills. It sits right at the edge, overlooking Oakland, with views of the city, Alameda, the Oakland Estuary, San Francisco, and the Bay Bridge.

According to the examiner.com, this property is $4.3 million.

Boy, I'd sure hate to be at the far end from the toilet when I had to take an emergency poo.

I suppose if I was married to Bill Gates, I wouldn't want to have to look at him too often either. I'm guessing he and his wife don't see each other very often in a house that size. (Probably have separate bed rooms, if you know what I mean).
