Mansion Mish Mash

August 8, 2009



This amazing home is located at 1129 Ocean Avenue in Long Branch, NJ. It is a new construction and is oceanfront. The home, dubbed Belle Mer (beautiful sea), is owned by a man named Eli D. Cohen. It contains two identical detached garages, a large swimming pool, and two identical pool houses. Thanks to Michael who sent me the first picture. I love the large gate with the stone pillars!


These two homes are located on Sunset Trail in Northbrook, IL. The smaller home, to the left in the 1st picture, has 10,100 square feet of living space. As you can see, the home to the right of it had just been built and is very big! If the smaller home is 10,100 square feet, then this home is definitely over 16,000 square feet.



I love this home! This newly built mansion is located on White Oak Drive in Northbrook, IL. It seems as though there are a lot of large homes being built around this area as well as Barrington and Burr Ridge. This home is no exception. If you look at the 2nd picture, you see the house under construction all the way to the right? That home has 14,500 square feet. Now, take a look at the home featured, which is all the way to the left. This home is definitely almost twice the size of the 14,500 square foot home! So, it definitely looks to be over 25,000 square feet. That’s just my opinion. What is so cool about this house, is how wide and long it is! I would love to know whats going on in the inside.

This massive compound is owned by Dr. I.V Hilliard who owns The New Light Christian Church which is said to have over 28,000 followers. The home is located on Doerre Road in Spring, TX. According to Zillow.com, the property has a total square footage of 40,519 square feet and has 30 bedrooms and 36 bathrooms. A Homes of the Rich reader said that each of the 5 small home located behind the house are 2,500 square feet. Then there are the other two buildings, which looks to be 6,000 square feet together. So, that means that the main house is around 21,000 square feet. The compound also contains a tennis court and a swimming pool.

Champ D’Or gets a new Listing Agency and new asking Price!

July 14, 2009








Champ D’or, the 48,000 square foot Mega Chateau, is now listed with Briggs Freeman. The asking price? A steal at $27 million and far less than what it had originally been listed at! The home, which is located at 1851 Turbeville Road in Hickory Creek, TX, was first listed at $48 million over 6 years ago. Then the price went to $35 million, then to $59.55 million, then to $72 million, then to $65.5 million, and now to its current price. What a real estate roller coaster ride! I have a feeling though that the home will still not sell. Over the years, the Realtors that have listed this home have spent close to $350,000 advertising it and even throwing large parties. Mr. Goldfield apparently put $36 million into the house, so if the home sells at this price, he will actually lose money.
P.S – The mansion is finally visible in Bird’s Eye View!!!
