In this new article, I will be focusing on bringing you facts about the most expensive homes in Nigeria with picture proofs as well.
We’re in a country where everyone is trying their best to outdo the person next to them, be it a friend, colleague or foe. Nowhere is this best showcased than in the real estate space, where people are constantly trying to outdo each other by putting up sprawling and awe-gaping architectural structures.
Over the last few decades, Nigeria has become the country where fancy buildings with unusual architecture are widespread.
The majority of these buildings were inspired or built by white people of foreign countries. However, lately there has been a surge in the number of these homes of expensive taste being built by Nigerians. Nigerian architects are not here to play at all.
For a keen observer and someone who has travelled across the country, it is impossible not to notice such buildings. They have taken over some of the largest cities of Nigeria, such as Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt and some other rich playgrounds around the country.
The cost of these houses exceeds several million dollars. You just need to take a walk around Banana Island, Jabi, or Lekki to see things for yourself.
The most expensive homes in Nigeria are the embodiment of refinement, beauty, and high achievements of architectural art.

Every room is truly admirable. This three-storey white building has a very modern and unusual design. We can say for sure that you will not find a similar house in the whole Nigeria.
Valuation: $30 million
Banana Island is a quite popular place preferred by a lot of rich people. Here you can see quite a lot of architectural art works. It is a chic territory with well-groomed lawns, beautiful plants and good roads all around. Considerable attention is paid to monitoring the environment and maintaining order.
As a result of all these advantages, the Okoye brothers have chosen Banana Island as their place of living. Their house is really magnificent. The interior and exterior always impresses the visitors of this mansion.

This building has the most original and exquisite design of all houses on this list so far. More than 4 years was spent on its construction. The cost of this house is estimated at about 10 million dollars. That is, 20 million lesser than the ‘valuation’ of Dangote’s home, but still quite impressive.
It has indoor swimming pools and elevators. The elevator looks like a transparent tube on which the cabin moves between 1st and 4th floors. Usually, such constructions are installed in office buildings, shopping complexes.
The owner uses a garage with an unusual design, and of course it holds many expensive cars.
When you look at the round window it seems like you are on board of a ship. The floor of the house has TV screens; this is a very creative, unusual design made with very strong glass so no one should be afraid that the equipment will be damaged under their feet.
The atmosphere is complemented by decorative palm trees.
