Hong Kong’s ‘Champagne House’ is on sale for $38 million

Property Bubble or what, eh? Geddit? Bubble!

HAVE YOU EVER dreamed of living the life of a Chinese Emperor?

Yes? Then, Hong Kong’s ‘Champagne House might just be for you.

If you have a spare $38.7 million (via Homes of the Rich).

The 10,955-square-foot estate is said to be ideal for parties and entertaining, with an open layout, oversized kitchen, and four different terraces.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom colonial-style residence sits on an expansive private park containing traditional Chinese architecture.

The mansion comes with two guarded entrance gates and driveways that lead toward the residence.

Take the tour:
