World’s Most Expensive? Hong Kong Home Costs $21k a Sq. Ft.

Hong Kong is the kind of place where one-room apartments have been offered for sale at $3 million on — you can’t make this up — Welfare Road. So it’s hardly surprising that what could be the world’s most expensive house, in dollar-per-sq.-ft. terms, is to be found by a bay named Repulse.

On the market since 2012, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom, 4,120-sq.-ft. “beautiful British style townhouse” at 110 Repulse Bay Road can be yours for $87.3 million. Realtors Engel & Völkers insist that’s not a typo.

The house’s price means that it costs roughly $21,190 a square foot. By contrast, the 38,000-sq.-ft. Bel-Air mansion described by Forbes in January as “the most expensive home ever listed in America” was put on the market for just $6,560 a sq. ft.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
