UPDATE: I'm sorry to report that despite being furnished the following information by Stuart Hughes' own company, recent reports hint that this story is greatly exaggerated, if not completely fabricated. The house seems to be in the 'planning stages' not actually built as Stuart Hughes claims. Unfortunately, this is not the first time Mr. Hughes has made many suspicious with his outlandish claims of luxury products. Born Rich reported his luxury yacht was a fake and Computer Choppers dedicates an entire page on their site to warn customers of Stuart Hughes' claims. As a result, I will no longer be reporting on products from Staurt Hughes. A special thanks goes out to Home Designing for their sleuthing. My sincerest apologies.
I am keeping the original post below for your utter entertainment:
Another ostentatious product from Stuart Hughes - the world's most expensive home ever built. Touted as "The World's First Gold House", it's a luxury home built by Zug Switzerland's exklusivHAUS in collaboration with Stuart Hughes, who's known for his outrageously expensive custom luxury items.
THE WORLD’S FIRST GOLD HOUSE
Kevin Huber of exklusivHAUS approached Stuart Hughes for an unprecented project. Mr. Huber, who designs unique custom homes for high end clients, had one client who wanted something truly extraordinary.
The completion of the home took five and a half years and cost $12.2 billion USD (£7.5 billion)
The home resides on a secret location in Switzerland near the Italian border and sits on a lot measuring 2,442 square meters. It has a living space of 752 square meters, 8 rooms, a 388 square meter terrace, a basement with a special stone wine cellar measuring 245 square meters and a 4 car garage.
What makes the house so very pricey is the over 200,000 kilograms of solid gold and platinum fixtures and fittings and the specially designed flooring throughout is made from meteoric stone with shavings of original 65 million year old T-Rex Dinosaur bones embedded in each tile.
