Minecraft’s Creator Notch spends £45million on an Insane Mansion
If you’re struggling to fathom how much money Markus Persson (aka Notch) made from his sale of Minecraft and Mojang to Microsoft, it was 2 Billion USD, heres the sort of thing that kind of money can buy. Take a look at this, he just paid $70 million (and rumour has it outbid Beyonce & Jay-Z which is worth it on its own) to buy the most expensive house in Beverly Hills. Best bit is that’s not even that big of a dent in his wallet.
The sale was confirmed by the John Aaroe Group earlier, it was a Beverly Hills record at $70 million (£45m). He didn’t just get a house for that though it came with all the extras, take a look at the agent’s press release:
“Persson’s purchase included everything in the house from luxury furnishings to exotic electronics such as the automated 54–foot curved glass door in the living room that opens onto an infinity pool with iPad-controlled fountains and spectacular views. Cases of Dom Perignon were part of the deal.”
The house is 23,000 square-feet, and features include but not limited to:
Vodka and tequila bars, a candy room, an 18-seat tiered screening room, a state-of-the-art kitchen and an exquisite 18-foot onyx dining room table for 24 that includes place settings by Roberto Cavalli at a cost of $3,700 each. Three high-definition 90-inch television screens bring panoramic views of Los Angeles from the roof into the down stairs lounge – especially breathtaking at night, says De Los Reyes. Art pieces include a replica of James Dean’s motorcycle and a chromed Ma Deuce machine gun. On a conventional note, the home has eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms all equipped with Toto Neorest toilets at a price of $5,600 each.
Seriously just watch the video this place is insane and I now want to be filthy rich…
Kind of hope he knocks it all down and builds a small hut out of wooden cubes instead.
