    Look, we know it’s hard getting on the property ladder and buying your first ever home.

    Unless you’ve got a few hundred million handy, obvs. As so many of us do.

    If you happen to have £860million spare, it might be worth considering investing in this snazzy villa, which is apparently the most expensive villa in the whole world.

    I mean, go big or go (to a rented shared) home, right?

    The lavish villa has just gone on the market for €1billion (£860million).

    As you’d expect, it’s very fancy.

    Le Cedres (The Cedars) mansion-style villa is the ex-home of billionaire Grand Marnier heir Suzanne Marnier-Lapostolle, located in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat in the south of France.

    Apparently Suzanne’s giving up her home because she really wants to downsize.

    Fair enough.

    Now, of course, £860million will buy you quite a lot of exciting features.

    The 10-bedroom villa (so much room for activities!) has an Olympic size swimming pool dug into some rocks, a ballroom, and stables for 30 horses.

A home hunter looking to escape from their neighbours can get this large private island with three-bedroom cottage for just £500,000. See SWNS story SWISLAND; Harbour Island is a picturesque retreat made up of nine acres of rugged coastline with wild gardens and woodland which attract a spectacular array of wildlife and seabirds. Hidden in the middle of the island is a 1,000 sq/ft cottage which needs to be refurbished but currently consists of three bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and conservatory. There is also a wooden outbuilding with guest room and shower room, a boathouse and slipway. The private island is located off Crinan Harbour, which is a 100 mile trip to the west of Glasgow, Scotland.This private island off the coast of Scotland could be all yours for £500K

    If you’re a fan of gardens, this place would be perfect for you. There are also 20 greenhouses on-site, 35-acres of stunning gardens, 150,000 plants (yes, someone counted), and around 15 professional gardeners on-hand whenever you need them.

    You’ll also get the cool factor of living in a villa that was once owned by a king. King Leopold II of Belgium, to be more specific.

    When you move in, your neighbours will include Andrew Lloyd Webber and US tech billionaire Paul Allen.

    We know. It’s all very exciting. You’re almost ready to move in.

    But there is a catch (not the price, silly). Suzanne would quite like whomever moves in to really care for the house and keep the property as it is.

    The villa has been in the family since 1924, so she’s quite keen not to sell the property to anyone who plans to tear down the gardens and make lots of mini flats to rent out. ‘Kay?

    If you fancy splashing out on the most expensive villa in the world – perhaps as a holiday home – you’ll just need to contact estate agents in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat.

    Chop chop.
