One of the very first things that people buy once they win the lottery is a brand new home! To help you find your lottery dream house, we have compiled a list of our top 3 lottery dream house picks.
$102 Million - Fleur de Lys Mansion
Location: Los Angeles, United States of America
Size: 50 000 square feet
Summary: 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms
Owner: The owner has chosen to remain anonymous.
Fun Fact: The mansion has been used frequently in the media, for movies like “The Green Hornet”, TV series like “Big Shots”, and commercials like the 2008 Audi Superbowl commercials.
The most mysterious part of this house is that nobody knows who owns it. The previous owners, David and Suzanne Saperstein, sold it for $102 million in 2007 to an anonymous buyer who paid in cash. There are rumours that the owner is Michael Milken, an infamous junk bond king, but this has not been proven.
Fleur de Lys Mansion was modelled after a French castle called Vaux le Vicomte. It has 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms and a large range of other features, such as, a wine cellar and tasting room, a double storey library, and a ballroom. The amenities outside include a pool, spa, and multiple tennis courts.
$195 Million - Palazzo di Amore
Location: Beverly Hills, California, United States of America
Size: 53 000 square feet
Summary: 12 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms
Owner: Jeff Greene, a real estate mogul.
Fun Fact: This sprawling mansion can accommodate parties and events for up to 1000 people!
Although this opulent mansion is currently owned by Jeff Greene, he recently listed it for sale (which means you could buy this lottery dream house for real!). This 53 000 square foot home is located on a 25 acre estate. The whole house is Mediterranean styled - except for the separate entertainment complex that hosts a ballroom and rotating dance floor!
Other than the 12 bedrooms and 23 bathrooms, the property also features exciting perks like a bowling alley, a private movie theater, multiple tennis courts and swimming pools, and a 27 car garage. The property also produces its own wine from its own vineyards, just in case you needed more reasons to be envious of this luxury abode!
$249 Million - Fair Field
Location: The Hamptons, New York, United States of America
Size: 110 000 square feet
Summary: 39 bathrooms, 29 bedrooms
Owner: Ira Rennert, a billionaire investor.
Fun Fact: This estate took a whopping 5 years to build!
This 110 000 square foot dream house is located on a 63 acres of oceanfront property in The Hamptons. The current owner, Ira Rennert, commissioned the estate in 1999 and it was finally completed, 5 years later, in 2004.
Some exciting features of this home include a synagogue, an orangery, a home movie theatre that seats 164 people, a basketball court, and a bowling alley. There is also an astonishing 29 bedrooms, 39 bathrooms, 3 swimming pools, and 2 courtyards. All of these amenities use a lot of electricity, of course, so the home also has its own power plant.
