Highlight Story

The world’s most expensive flat has been sold for 200 million pounds in Monaco, despite mysterious murder of its previous owner in the main reception room.

The two-floor penthouse - which includes a double-height library and vast roof terraces complete with mature 15-foot trees and infinity pool - has now been snapped up on a 97-year lease at a staggering price of €240 million (£199mn) by an unnamed Middle Eastern investor, thought to be an Arab sheikh, the Daily Mail reported.

Besides having a highly-secured panic room with reinforced glass and surveillance cameras, the swanky house has other hi-tech facilities such as cinema screens which emerge from walls at the touch of a button, and numerous walk-in wardrobes and dressing rooms.

It has a leisure room equipped with billiard tables and arcade video games, Jacuzzi and spa, also a media room with special executive chairs which can convert into beds.
