So what does $1.1 billion buy you? Ten-bedrooms, a ballroom, chapel, 30-horse stables, a 35-acre botanical park (including 20 greenhouses and 15,000 rare tropical plants); and an Olympic-sized swimming pool.


The home also has royal history. It was built around 1830 and has ties to Leopold II, the king of Belgium who once used it as a holiday home in the 1900s. The most recent owner was Suzanne Marnier-Lapostolle, heiress of Grand Marnier, a liqueur brand.


The previous record for a list price, according to the French press Bursier.com was a Texas ranch offered for $725 million.
