If a giant mansion located on a private island next to a mystical lake sounds like ‘pure fantasy’ to you, then think again. The most expensive house in China seems like something you witness in fairylands, but if you can cough up the dough even fairies can be very much real!
The large scale industrialization and heavy inflow of foreign investment over the last decade has minted over 1,000,000 millionaires and over 213 billionaires in China, giving rise to a new class of ultra-rich Chinese who love to live large and splurge money on the finest things life has to offer them.
This ‘Ultra Luxury’ mansion named ‘Taohuayua’, which means ‘Utopia’ is located on a private island onlooking the Dushu Lake. It comes with 32 bedrooms and 32 bathrooms, a wine cellar, mist covered lake and an amazing infinity pool.
The property took 3 years to build and is made completely out of handcrafted bricks, it is also 100% compliant with Feng Shui with all rooms facing the south for more sun light, making it easy to market to Chinese buyers.
Within just a few days of listing, the property has already received quite a few offers from overseas and inland Chinese billionaires driving the price further through the roof. This beautiful mansion and its entire estate can be yours for a little over $140 Million, but if you can’t cough up the dough you’ll have to be content with the beautiful images below,
