Almost Identical Mansions

August 5, 2009




This is the former mansion of Indian mortgage broker and entertainment mogul Vijay K. Taneja. The home is located on Summit Drive in Fairfax, VA. It contains 25,000 square feet of living space and includes an indoor swimming pool, an indoor racquetball court, a gold-leaf prayer room, a home theater, and a tennis court. Vijay built the home in 2005. While living in the house, he was also executing an elaborate mortgage fraud scheme — defrauding four U.S. banks of millions — while continuing his global investments. Investigators are still trying to untangle the financial web. He pleaded guilty November 2008 to bilking banks of at least $33 million and victimizing associates from the Indian community with phony home loans. The mansion was auctioned off and the highest bid went to Egyptian businessman Ali Hafez who paid $3.875, which I think is practically a steal. The bidding started at $2.8 million.

NOW……Take a look at this mansion, which I just did a post on yesterday, and tell me if you see anything. 

YES, THEY ARE ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME. 

This house has only 21,500 square feet, but you can see that every detail, from the columns, to the two symmetrical wings, that they are the same. I wonder which company built them. Probably Niroo Mansions.

The Jonas Brothers to buy Alpine, NJ Mansion

July 26, 2009










The home was originally on the market for $12,000,000 and is now listed at $9,995,000. It is located at 20 Timberline Drive in Alpine, NJ. It contains 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, an elevator, 3 kitchens, a 4-room master suite, library, 1st floor media room, gym, home theater, guest quarters, a 7-car garage, a tennis court, and an indoor swimming pool. I don’t think that this home fits them. If I was them, I would buy either this home or this home which are in nearby Saddle River. They are much more nicer inside and only in the $7-$9 million range.

Mega Mansion Talk!

July 15, 2009


John Finton is the owner of Finton Construction, a Los Angeles firm that has about 30 luxury projects under construction at a time. Him and his company have built some of the most impressive homes in Southern California, especially in the Beverly Hills area. His firm built Haim Saban’s house in Beverly Park, Alec Gores’ house in Beverly Park, Eddie Murphy’s house in Beverly Park, and many many others. He estimates his firm does about $70 million in annual construction sales. Not only does he build homes in the USA, but he also plans and builds massive estates in other countries.
His firm is building a 60,000 square foot, yes folks 60,000, mega-mansion in Moscow, Russia. The massive home, which is being built for a very very rich woman, will include a wine cellar, a swimming pool, and a bowling alley.
Wait. There’s more!!! Although John is not building it, his architect friend is designing it. What is it? Well, his friend is currently designing a 100,000 square foot home in Shanghai!! 

This is a model of a proposed mega-mansion being offered by Khatri International Inc. The 11.9 acres property is located off of Laurel Canyon Blvd in Los Angeles. Khatri has two options for the new buyer. They can either build you nine 10,000 square foot executive homes, each with additional 4,000 square feet of enclosed parking space or a grand 30,000 square foot palace, which is pictured above. I would definitely opt for the 2nd option. The 30,000 square foot home would have an 18,000 square foot subterranean garage (which would bring it to 48,000 square feet!!), an incredible 60-seat movie theater, a 4-lane bowling alley, a huge billiards room, an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool, and a rooftop helicopter.

This amazing 20,000+ square foot mega-mansion, dubbed Le Grand Reve, was designed by Landry Design Group. I would love to know more about this home.

I mentioned this home in one of my previous posts. Now, I have found out who owns this monstrosity. The owner is Alec Gores, a self made billionaire ($1.5 billion to be exact) who made his fortune through leveraged buyouts of technology firms. The 42,000 square foot French Normandy Mega-Mansion is located in the exclusive gated Beverly Park community located in Los Angeles, CA. Finton Construction built the home and the Landry Design Group designed it.
