    There are others like it, some with much more elaborate/beautiful landscaping, but this was the best photo available. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    On occasion, understatement is paramount. [​IMG]

    I take it that the definition of "baller"
    is more money than taste.

    He also has quite an extensive art collection, including Kooning, Pollock, Warhol, and Picasso.



    But the $$$ he paid for some of that Damien Hirst crap???? I don't get it.
    Not to get into art theory or anything like that.

    This is the architectural 'masterpiece' you can get for a cool $14 million in Vancouver

    Assuming it is structurally sound and nice on the inside, I'd rather live here than the other places. I don't think I could live with myself if I lived in a house >3000 square feet or so. Plus, charleston is awesome!

    This makes me so hot and bothered. I would take a man's life for that wine stockade if it were made of brick. For the mathematically inclined, how many bottles in that pic? What I love is that, as large as it is, it's not big enough and he still has to store bottles standing up on the ground. Too funny.

    I'm sure you could get used to it.

    I scroll up to the indigo text then start reading. It's easy to see where I left off or if something I said was quoted. No one else colors their text so I might as well.

    Best house in SF has no good photographs. It is the Russell house done by Erich Mendelsohn in the fifties. Just an amazing place. I guess where I grew up the most baller is the Larry Ellison estate, but not my style.

    I found a picture of the house from the 50's, before the shrubs grew up around it, here.

    L.A. is so full of amazing houses I wouldn't know where to begin. The Huntington mansion is incredible just for the gardens, if it were still a private residence and not a museum.

    David Geffen bought Jack Warner's old estate in in 1990 for $47M, which at the time was the highest price ever paid for a private residence, and promptly spent $50M remodeling it. And he doesn't even live there - he uses it for entertaining. He lives on a house that comprises 5 adjacent lots on the beach in Malibu. I haven't seen these houses but I suspect they're not tacky - though I could be wrong.

    I've been inside of Robert Evans famous Beverly Hills house, which is surprisingly tasteful and reserved. His bedroom was kind of gross, with a mink bedspread, but the grounds are lovely.

    I also went to an event at Dustin Hoffman's house in the Palisades. It didn't look like anything special from the street but the lot was immense - the pool house was far bigger than the house I live in.

    If money was no object I'd want of the the older Point Dume estates in Malibu, with a relatively modest one story house on an acre of ocean front property, then a second "city" house in the Hollywood Hills.
