World’s Most Expensive House: Owners Refuse To Move In

The world’s most expensive house is a 27-storey block called Antilia in Mumbai.

But the billion-dollar tower is lying abandoned at night-time because its owners refuse to move in with fears it will bring bad luck.

The property, which cost $1 billion to build, boats three helipads, six car parks, a ballroom, theatre and floating gardens; and it dominates the Mumbai skyline. Built for India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, who ranks as the ninth wealthiest person in the world by Forbes, the home has everything a family could possibly need.

But the clan reportedly won’t stay overnight and haven’t moved in since it was completed last year because it has fallen foul of ‘vastu Shasta’, an obscure Hindu version of feng shui.

Ambani, who is worth $27 billion, and his wife and two children are allegedly concerned that the building doesn’t conform to the ancient Indian architectural principles of ‘vastu Shasta’ and therefore fear the home will curse them of misfortunes.

Dinners and film screenings have taken place at the property so it is not completely being unused, however after every party the owners return to their former home.

The Hindu tradition of vastu Shasta emphasises the importance of facing the rising sun but Antilia is said to not have enough windows on its eastern side, despite the staggering amount of money spent on it.

If you had enough cash to splash out on a dream house such as this, would you hire shipping to India services and move in regardless of the feng shui?
