If you were thinking about making Chateau Louis XIV your totally humble (and not insanely ridiculous at all) abode, it looks like you'll just have to settle for some other enormous French palace or mega mansion estate. The massive 17th Century-inspired villa just outside of Paris has, unfortunately, been sold -- breaking the world record for the world's most expensive home at a chandelier-rattling $301 million. Well, crap.
The villa, which would make even the monarch it was named after blush, is located on 56 acres of park, just a precious stone's throw away from the actual Palace of Versailles, according to a report by Bloomberg. The house itself features basic amenities like a cinema, wine cellar, an aquarium, and high-tech controls built into the elaborate decor. Outside, there's a fountain covered in gold leaf and even a freaking hedge labyrinth, you know, for when you're entertaining. A short video will give you a glimpse of the place, if you want to subject yourself to that.
