Most of us are already aware about 'Antilia', Mukesh Ambani's billion dollar high-rise—which also happens to be the most expensive house on the planet—perched amidst the hustle-bustle of South Mumbai, the city that never sleeps.
However, did you take a moment to comprehend and acknowledge the splendour of 'Gulita', the residence that Isha Ambani moved to after she married Anand Piramal, son of billionaire businessman Ajaj Piramal of Piramal Enterprises? While it may be impossible to compete with 'Antilia', the sole Ambani daughter's palatial abode spells luxury beyond comprehension—way beyond what would be achievable (or even imaginable) for most people across the globe.
From expansive dining rooms to an outdoor pool, here are a few awe-striking facts about the diamond-themed bungalow that sits comfortably overlooking the Arabian sea.
A Whooping 450 Crores!
The palatial mansion costs all of 450 crores, spread across 50,000 square-feet in Mumbai's Worli area. It was designed and constructed using 3D modelling tools by a London-based engineering firm, Eckersley OCallaghan.
Bought Over From Hindustan Unilever Ltd
The bungalow was bought over from Hindustan Unilever Ltd, approximately 7 years ago. The property has been constructed on the land that held the Hindustan Unilever training centre. The couple received an all-clear certificate and permission to occupy the home on September 19th, 2018, a few months before they got married in a lavish wedding ceremony on December 18th.
A Wedding Gift From the Groom's Parents
The impressive home was a wedding gift from Ajay and Swati Piramal—Anand Piramal's parents—to the newlywed couple. The Piramals had won the bid for the building in 2012 and bought the property for a handsome sum of Rs 450 crore. Ajay Piramal heads a $10 billion global conglomerate that deals in pharmaceuticals, financial services, real estate, information services and glass packaging.
Plush, Unbelievable Interiors
When the exteriors of the residence are jaw-dropping, you can expect the interiors to fall nothing short of dream-like. Besides being a five-floored high-rise, the house holds three basements. The first basement has a lawn, an open-air water body and a double height multi-purpose room. The ground floor houses the entrance lobby while the upper floors feature multiple living and dining halls, bedrooms and studies. The bungalow also houses lounge areas, dressing rooms, a garden, a swimming pool, a diamond room and a temple room. The property can also apparently hold up to 20 luxury cars!
Isha Ambani's Gal Pals Approve!
In April 2019, Isha Ambani hosted a soiree in her new abode, with known personalities such as Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Parineeti Chopra, Tamanna Dutt, Srishti Behl Arya and Radhika Merchant in attendance. A girls-night in making ice-cream, Parineeti Chopra revealed that it was "the best night ever!", while Priyanka complimented Isha on the house, thanking the "hostess with the mostest."
