House worth 7.5 billion GDP is built in Switzerland

A house worth £7.5 billion has been built in Switzerland, near to the Italian border.

The 8 room property has taken five years to complete and has automatically become the most expensive in the world, beating the previous owners of the title- a Mumbai property owned by Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani worth £1.2 billion, and a £106 million ranch In Wyoming.

Created by ostentatious British designer Stuart Hughes, the house features over 200,000 kg of solid gold, platinum fixtures and fittings, and flooring made from meteoric stone which features shavings from 65 million year old T-Rex dinosaur bones.

With a floor plan encompassing some 2,442 square metres, the house has enough space for a balcony, a specially designed cellar cum wine storage area and a secure garage with parking space for four of your most expensive cars.

Never one to shy away from a bit of bling, Hughes is renowned for his work with gold and has previously created a Rolls Royce Phantom and an apple iPhone 4 using the precious metal.

The exact location of the property, which is collaboration with Swiss company exklusivHAUS, is being kept secret due to security fears for its as yet unnamed resident.
