It’s not unusual for relatively modest-sized homes to be priced at hundreds of millions of dollars in Hong Kong, consistently ranked the most expensive real estate market in the world.

Every square foot counts in this global financial hub where 2,000 square feet — a humble space, when you consider the sizes of homes in virtually any other city in the world — can fetch a whopping quarter of a billion dollars. We look at three luxury homes currently on sale, and what you'll be able to get for between HK$39 million to $400 million.

Designed to create the feeling of being on a luxury cruise, this Kennedy Town property, which made it to the pages of Home Journal in February this year before its owner decided to put it on the market, occupies the entire top floor of its building. No expense has been spared in decorating the glamorous apartment, and it shows — but the winning feature is the 2,000-square-foot rooftop terrace that comes with it.
