A London mansion believed to be adorned with millions of dollars worth of gold leaf decoration is on the market for a record asking price of $483 million.

The 60,000-square-foot home, once was owned by late Lebanon Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, contains 45 bedrooms, underground parking, a swimming pool and possibly bulletproof windows, according to the Telegraph.

The UK’s record price for a home was set in 2010, when a penthouse at One Hyde Park in London was bought for $226 million.

Hariri’s mansion was given to late Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz in 2005.

The property’s agents, Knight Frank, told the Financial Times that the mansion is being offered to select international buyers, but it’s not listed publicly.
