A mansion that was once the home of Belgium's King Leopold II is reportedly on sale in southern France for a cool €1 billion.
If you're looking to move house and happen to have have a spare billion euros in the bank, then we have some good news for you. 
The "Les Cèdres" mansion in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, near Nice in southern France, is on sale for what's said to be the world's highest ever asking price for a home, reported the Nice Matin newspaper
The residence comes with ten bedrooms, a 50-metre pool, and 14 hectares of green space for the kids to play. 
The grounds also have a few dozen greenhouses containing some extremely rare tropical plants - reportedly Europe's largest collection of tropical plants, in fact.
It's currently owned by the Marnier-Lapostolle family, best known for their Grand Marnier cognac liqueur.
