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.

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.

Square Feet: 19,000
   Alan Jackson, the country mega-star who has sold over 50 million records, has finally put his massive abode on the market for a spine tingling $38,000,000.

There are two spiral staircases located at either end of the foyer. The first floor contains a formal dining room, a formal living room, a maple-floored home office, a large family room complete with 22 ft. ceilings, a spacious gourmet kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, and a glass enclosed porch.
