I hate moving, don’t you? Bruce Makowsky understood this very well when he designed this billionaire playground. His maxim was that everything in this 38,000 square foot home comes with it, so all you have to do it walk in with your clothes. ‘Everything’ in this case, includes features like the 42 luxury cars, fully stocked candy parlour, $150,000 worth of bubbly at all times, and yes a helicopter with its own landing pad. Sounds like a lot to maintain? Don’t worry, there’s a full-time staff of seven people ready to do things like run the massage parlours or over 17,000 square feet of entertainment space. The view by the pool is awesome but so is the 18-foot movie screen that comes up. The 40-seat indoor theatre is world-class and has a deal with major studios to get every movie in theatres streaming to your home instantly. And if you’re looking to buy this home you might be in luck because the price has dropped from $250 to $150 million. So affordable, isn’t it?!
