Yeah, I know, just saying what a recent sale was. Happened to see it in the newspaper. The 32 million is probably on the low end lol.

I don't consider the Biltmore Mansion a monstrosity. That thing in the Hamptons, however, is.

how about the Vanderbilt Summer Homes - The Breakers and the Marble House in Newport RI.

The Marble House was built between 1888 and 1892 for William Kissam Vanderbilt, grandson of Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt. The house was a social landmark that helped spark the transformation of Newport from a relatively relaxed summer colony of wooden houses to the now legendary resort of opulent stone palaces. It was reported to cost $11 million, of which $7 million was spent on 500,000 cubic feet (14,000 m) of marble. (Approximately 70 Million / $140 million in '08 dollars.) Upon its completion, Mr. Vanderbilt gave the house to his wife Alva Erskine Smith as her 39th birthday present. William Vanderbilt's older brother Cornelius Vanderbilt II subsequently built the grandest of Newport cottages, The Breakers, between 1893 and 1895. The Breakers was constructed at a cost of more than seven million dollars (approximately $150 million in today's dollars adjusted for inflation)

I wonder if I could just have the interest on this home called Maison de L’Amitie in Palm Beach Florida at $125 million...

There are a lot of homes and condos that are so expensive and the one home that comes to mind is the one located in Nice, France named La Leopolda. The cost $ 398,350,000....It is also the former home of Bill Gates....10 acres with 50 gardeners....WOW!
