They dominate the top floors of skyscrapers, come with the likes of helipads, infinity pools and a butler service - and are fast becoming the must-have asset for the ultra rich.

With uninterrupted panoramic views, luxurious furnishings and private gyms, these 'super penthouses' - in some of the world's most exclusive locations - will set their buyers back between £16million and £265million.

But despite eye-watering price-tags, the demand among billionaires for such properties is growing, according to List Sotheby's International Realty in Singapore which has listed some of the most desirable options on the market.

Chief operating officer Leong Boon Hoe, told the South China Morning Post: 'We see emerging demand from a niche segment in Singapore who are willing to pay top dollar for the best property

'Other than the expected pride of ownership, large penthouses are becoming a desirable asset, much like mega-yachts and private jets. A super-penthouse could double as an office – where he could work in absolute privacy, or hold meetings with his management team – or as a private venue to entertain clients.'

Super penthouses are defined by a minimum floor space of 10,000 square feet, in a major city, according to the luxury realty company. They must also feature 360-degree views, a hotel-style concierge plus an added 'wow' factor - in one case the inclusion of a 1.01-carat blue $3million diamond.
