This house is owned by 5 different countries
Last year, an opulent Manhattan mansion hit the market — a normal, everyday affair if not for the fact that its owners include the governments of Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia.
The 20,000-square-foot home, which was modeled after the castle of Versailles, was bought by the Republic of Yugoslavia as a New York embassy in 1946.
But when the republic dissolved into separate countries in 1992, the property suddenly found itself with five current co-owners — who all need to sign off if the house is ever to be sold.
