Mukesh Ambani, India's richest man and the man who is predicted to be the world's richest man by 2014, has finally moved his family into the $1 billion Mumbai skyscraper he has been building as a private residence. The home, which is named Antilla after a legendary island once believed to lie in the Atlantic Ocean, has 27 stories.

The 53-year-old tycoon's new home is larger than the Palace of Versailles. It has underground parking for 160 cars, three helicopter pads and a theater that seats 50.

The first few floors are given over to garage space and housing for a staff of 600 takes up much of the middle section.

The home also has a ballroom, several lounges, a health club, a dance studio and an elevated garden.
