*2018 Update* Jay Z & Beyonce lost out in a bidding war to ‘Minecraft’ creator Markus Persson. It seems the now-billionaire sold his company to Microsoft for $2.5 Billion USD and went on a cheeky spending spree – of which this Beverley Hills mansion was first to fall victim. It’s still a sick pad regardless, so we thought it would be rude not to share again anyway.
When you read the headline ‘Jay Z and Beyonce Eying $85 Million Beverley Hills Mansion’ you’re expecting to see something pretty sensational – don’t worry, you’re about to. In the past I may have been a bit careless with my ‘best house in the world’ statements because 1181 North Hillcrest has got to come pretty close. The 23,000 square foot estate is rumoured to be snapped up by the power couple who have been eying the Los Angeles estate for some time.
A world-class creative team was charged with a mission: to create the single most exciting private home in California. The result is this Beverley Hills mansion that thoroughly raises the bar for architecture and design. Simply put, it is a marvelous achievement that redefines today’s luxury home.
The eight-bedroom, 15-bathroom cliffside home features sweeping views of downtown Los Angeles from the spacious kitchen and sitting rooms. The house also features a wine cellar, 12-seat vodka bar, 24-seat home theatre, a lolly room, some awesome James Dean/Ratpack art and collectibles, his and hers walk-in closets and a curved infinity pool in the spacious backyard. The no expense spared home also comes equipped with a 16-car garage with an elevator that can transport special vehicles (note the outrageous selection) to the man cave/bar/showroom below. This house is utterly insane. Enjoy.
I’ve also thrown in the video down the bottom which puts Cribs to shame.
