London, otherwise known as New York with better accents and a different meaning of chips, is another place known for soaring housing costs. But unlike New York, where you get to look at a park for a quarter million dollars, this London penthouse puts you right next to the Queen. Not just close to the Queen. You could look down upon the Queen from your bathroom.
The luxury apartment in London is going for $150 million and overlooks Buckingham Palace. You'd get to see the changing of the guards whenever you want and maybe catch the Queen stepping outside for a smoke (we have no proof that the Queen smokes, but it would be cool to see). The 12 bedrooms and bathroom could easily accommodate a small family or very wealthy soccer team and manager.
The owners of the building understand that $150 million is a lot to put down at once. So, out of their kind, kind hearts, they've offered two payment options. Paying it all or breaking it up into four easy payments of $37.5 million. See, it's pretty manageable after all.
