독해+문제: Russian buys world's priciest home

A new world record for a home has been set by an unidentified Russian billionaire. The mystery tycoon has spent $750 million on a luxurious villa on the French Riviera. The price tag smashes the previous record of the Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal earlier this year. He paid $235 million for a mansion on London’s ‘Billionaire Boulevard’. The new record was for the historic Villa Leopolda estate on France’s Cote d'Azur. For his or her money, the unnamed purchaser gets a mansion built by King Leopold II of Belgium in 1902. The grounds include 20 acres of gardens that require fifty full-time gardeners, and 1,200 olive, lemon and orange trees. Jonathan Hewlett, a London property expert, told the BBC that Central London and the French Riviera are the “current hotpots” for Russia’s new mega-rich.

The world’s media have been guessing the identity of the new owner of the Villa Leopolda. Many press reports say it is an oil fat cat. Initial rumours were that Roman Abramovich, the owner of Chelsea Football Club, was the mystery buyer. He already owns an exclusive property near Antibes, also on the French Riviera. According to a local French newspaper, there are now over 60 villas or mansions on the Cote d’Azur owned by wealthy Russians. Britain’s Times newspaper quoted a French luxury-home salesman as saying Russians become angry if they are offered a property at any price below $150 million. The latest record, however, will not last long. India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani will soon move into his $2 billion 27-storey home. The property was supposedly inspired by the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
