Most expensive house ever


The most expensive house of the world is not to be found in Tokyo, neither in Hollywood or New York. The € 1.4 billion costing house is built in Dublin, Ireland. It’s not that big though. It counts only three rooms and you won’t find golden taps in the house, nor a bath. Above all, the occupant had to build it all by himself. Sounds like a bad deal!

In fact the real money is in the bricks, literally. For a moment of time, Artist Frank Buckly was the owner of € 1.4 billion of hard cash. But he shredded the huge pile of banknotes and made insulating bricks out of it from which he built a house. Although a bit overprized, the house looks pretty cool.

The artist lived in the house for a week in an art project intended to stimulate debate about the value of money in post-Celtic tiger island. The money was awarded to Frank for his installation by the national mint under strict terms. I wonder how they are ever going to recoup that.

  1. At some parts of the world, there is not even a single own house for the poor people to live. This is totally unnecessary to spend € 1.4 billion for a home. Instead, the owner might have spent it for the charity purposes.

  3. ^ "The money was awarded to Frank for his installation by the national mint under strict terms" I'm pretty sure donating or spending it to fund for housing or anything else was probably against the terms of receiving it. Knowing that the bills were to be shredded into raw building material, I would bet that the cash wasn't backed by gold or anything else, but just used for what it represents.

  4. it would have to be sold under the bankruptcy laws. Have a heart he didn't bring down the irish banking system like some of the other property developers, he's hardly getting away with he, I expect this was the reason Westlife ceased to exist.
