Welcome to the life of luxury – let’s have a look how the rich and famous live!
Home, sweet home! If there’s any home that just screams wealth and class, it’s the penthouse. Think about it – the penthouse is literally the very definition of high society, both in terms of price and in terms of altitude. Right? Ok, you can have a fancy mansion or villa for the same price, but nothing compares to a penthouse apartment in the heart of the city (you know the cities with the most expensive real estate in the world).
It’s no wonder that celebrities are particularly partial to penthouses – especially with the nonstop travelling and busy schedules, not forgetting the big bucks these celebrities bank each year. That’s why some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities spend big money on million-dollar condos that allow them the perks of retaining their own place without the undesirable responsibilities.
If you want to find out which are the most expensive penthouses in the world, we got it covered. Here’s our top 6 most expensive celebrity penthouses around the world.
