  1. Of course it comes with a jet turbine helicopter and a car collection. Not sure if the attractive young lady comes with it too. Only in L.A.
    924 Bel Air Rd.

    Nope. It's golf themed.

    You know you're a baller when the "for sale" ad for your house looks like a rap video.

    Not my style, but wow.

    I never actually learned to play very well
    Only if it includes the collection of outboard motors and the Hermes power saw.

    Oh yeah, my old place. Glad to see they finally got the retractable outdoor IMAX screen operating. Dam thing was always breaking down. Sad to see how they've let the place run down otherwise.

    That video is nothing without a Robin Leach voiceover.
  9. . The guy must have been into boats. There was also a Hobby Cat sailboat fully rigged sitting on the patio.

    I have to write that best seller. I wouldn't by the house but I still want to write it.

    That's a nice crib, but waaaay overpriced...
    Why, for that kind of money, I could buy at least (3) Fender American Elite P-Basses, AND a nice amp too, so...

    Oops, sorry- Wrong thread- This was meant for the "Overpriced Fodera/Sadowsky" section.

    My apologies.

    I’d like a house with enough usable space for family, a computer-study room, enough bedrooms 3-4, a basement, a 2-car garage, a covered front - side porch and a nice music room that’s somewhat away from the bedrooms and social areas of a house.

    The house pictured is awesome but maintenance costs alone would make it a downer for me. Plus, I just don’t want to live in California.

    I prefer a house with a sidewalk out front with walkable streets around it.

    Even Berry Gordy’s (former) house on Boston Blvd in Detroit has a sidewalk right out front.
  13. No worries. There is a $12.5 million real estate commission for the sale of the home. I am sure the realtors would throw those bases in to close the sale.

    That would take way too much work. I’d rather just win a stinkin’ Lotto.

    Probably the same odds on that as me writing a best seller.

    I'm sure they would too; but another issue is: I can see the neighboring homes in the not-too-far distance...
    They might not like my morning bass work-out jams.
    The LAST thing I'd need is the Beverly Hills Police bustin' my chops about playing too loud in my mansion...

    For a cool quarter billion, I might want a little more acreage...
  17. I am sure the neighbors are not too happy when they fire up the jet turbine chopper. Those things are really loud at 120db plus when taking off. Your bass playing would sound like lullaby music in comparison.

    The helicopter is actually a statue, one of the "100 art installations" on the property.
    It's a mock up of "Airwolf" - a Bell 222 something or other chopper, apparently!

    A real helicopter - cool!
    A fake one everyone will be asking for rides in, and I need to tell them it's not real?! No thanks... not for my $250,000,000!

    It's in L.A.

    I just couldn't bring myself to live there. My Nephew lives there and is getting married this weekend. He loves it. I've visited enough to know I dislike it.

    Besides, I'd want to pick my own cars and I hate open floor plan modern design :) Gimme a nice Tudor style home in the English countryside with a 1965 DB5 Aston and I would be perfectly happy :D
