Queen Elizabeth II is about to welcome some new residents to the neighbourhood.After spending five years and some $160 million, the four Hinduja brothers, Indian billionaires whose family was once the wealthiest in Britain (after the Queen), are moving into a sprawling mansion adjacent to Buckingham Palace.

According to the Hindustan Times, the brothers are slated to move into the six-story residence on Carlton House Terrace next month.

And while it’s not technically a palace, the home boasts some incredible specs.

It contains 50 rooms, which are carved into four separate apartments for each of the four brothers, according to Luxpresso.It also has a swimming pool, movie theatre and dining room table that seats 30.

The brothers,┬áSrichand, Gopichand, Prakash, and Ashok, bought the property–actually, four connected lots–for $93 million back in 2006.

Together the brothers, who live in London, Geneva and Mumbai, run the Hinduja Group, an industrial empire worth around $9.6 billion that has roots in Iran.They hobnob with the world’s most powerful people, having entertained prime ministers and American presidents alike, according to Luxpresso.

They’re generous philanthropists, giving away millions every year to charity.

And they’re strict Hindus, abstaining from meat and alcohol.

Sounds like the perfect family to live next door to actual royalty.
