Updown Court is situated in the village of Windlesham in Surrey, in the UK. The property has 58 acres of landscaped gardens and private woodland and boasts a total of 103 rooms, yes 103!!!
Originally built in 1924 and was acquired by Egyptian Prince Sami Gayed 53 years later, the mansion was damaged by a fire in 1987.
A developer called Leslie-Allen Vercoe, purchased the property costing $38.4M. He then re-developed and re-designed the property which costed him $60M on top of the initial fee! The new development was designed by an Arizona based architectural company who made the Updown Court into the uber luxurious property you see today.
Upon entering the property, you are welcomed by a $3M heated marble driveway.
Out of the 103 rooms, there are 24 bedrooms which have their own marble en-suite bathrooms.
The property has some serious entertainment going on in the form of:
The first floor is mainly designed as the residential area and it has 8 huge bedrooms. The penthouse floors on the other hand boasts two penthouse apartments having 2 bedrooms, reception areas, luxury bathrooms and kitchen in each.
The whole property was valued at $138M in 2005 and in October 2011, the property was sold at almost half the price.

Do you love Monaco? Who doesn’t right, it’s a pretty awesome place. Well imagine this a yacht based on the streets of Monaco.
The staggering 155m Streets of Monaco yacht is expected to cost over $1.1 billion to build and is modelled on a section of Monte Carlo, Monaco.
A LAVISH new yacht recreating the billionaire’s playground of Monaco is set to become the world’s most expensive yacht.
Currently in the design stage, the super-ship will feature smaller versions of the state’s famous landmarks such as the Monte Carlo Casino and racetrack, as well as swimming pools, tennis courts, a cinema, a go kart track and a Hotel de Paris.
Instead of traditional decks the one-of-a-kind ship will have buildings, and instead of a swimming platform it will have a beach.
Travellers will also spot waterfalls, a swim-in Jacuzzi-bar, helicopters and submarines on board.
The one-of a kind ship could be home to 16 guests and 70 crew with the main apartment spread over three floors and 445 sq m.
Linking upper and lower living areas is the Atrium – featuring seven guest suites, a bathroom, bedroom, dressing room, reception and balcony.
The idea for the super-boat, designed by Yacht Island Design, was sparked by car racing and developed into something more innovative.
“It is basically a floating city,” company director Rob McPherson said.
“The design theme called for a unique yacht that reflected the style and sophistication of the principality.
“We want to create a truly unique environment that could take the principality of Monaco to the ocean.”
The ship will exceed the $1 billion price tag reportedly paid by Roman Abramovich for his Eclipse yacht.
A second creation by Yacht Island Design will be a smaller 85-metre yacht based on a Pacific Island theme.
