A mansion outside Paris recently set the record for the most expensive home ever sold.
Château Louis XIV, which was completed in 2011 but designed to resemble a 17th-century French château, sold for 275 million euros (about $301 million), according to Bloomberg.
The house — if one can refer to it with such a modest term — features an aquarium, home theater, squash court, underground nightclub, and wine cellar.
Outside, in the 57-acre park in which the château is situated, there's "a gleaming gold-leafed fountain" along with "an array of flowers, marble statues, bridle paths, and a hedged labyrinth," all of which "evoke the genius of Le Nôtre," the French landscape architect famous for designing the park at Versailles.
The estate was reportedly sold to a Middle Eastern buyer, with Christie's International Real Estate involved in the transaction. It crushed the previous record for a price paid for a private home: $221 million for a London penthouse sold in 2011.
