World's most expensive home

Hala Ranch mansionThe world's most expensive home is up for sale - for £67.5 million ($135 million).

The Hala Ranch mansion, set on a 95-acre estate in Aspen, Colorado, is bigger than the White House.

It boasts 15 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a children's wing, beauty salon, swimming pool, tennis courts, and its own cross-country ski trails.

The mansion is owned by Saudi prince Bandar bin Sultan.

Joshua Saslove, the estate agent handling the sale, told The New York Times that after review by the prince's lawyers, only 11 viewings of the 1,000 requests to see Hala Ranch have been granted.

Prince Bandar and his wife, Princess Haifa, built the ranch in 1991, as Aspen was transformed from a place of hippie chic into the destination of choice for billionaires and their hangers on.

According a New York Times reporter, most rooms have banks of windows overlooking the Rocky Mountains.
