Here’s A Few Places To Call Home When You Win The Powerball Tonight
$1.5 billion dollar prize is something like $977 million with lump sum and around $530 million after taxes. Here are a few fantasy properties you could spend some of your new incredible wealth on.
This eight-bedroom, double penthouse (that’s two penthouses!) in Battery Park City clocks in at over 10,000 square feet and has three private outdoor spaces. Plus, you can use all the amenities the Ritz offers, including room service and housekeeping. Asking price: $75 million.
This $120 million three-townhouse combination on East 62nd Street right off Fifth Avenue. Imagine the parties you could have in a mansion like this. (Or the mysterious recluse you could be in this—whatever your style of billionaire-ing may be.)
We’d likely schedule a viewing of this $50 million, five-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot penthouse, with incredible views of the park. The listing says a “particularly gifted owner” is needed. We’re not really sure what that means, but it might have something to do with having a gift of a sizable cash balance.
NYC winters are notoriously rough (even now, when it’s comparatively mild). That’s why, if we were billionaires, we’d choose to spend the cold months in our very own $28 million beachfront Barbados mansion. It’s not completed yet, but here’s hoping we can move in by winter 2017.
Since snow conditions have been less-than-ideal on the east coast this year, you might want to buy your very own 18,000-square-foot $60 million Colorado ski chalet complete with 876 acres, two outdoor fireplaces, four fire pits, two full outdoor kitchens, and a brick pizza oven if you win the Powerball. There’s also a furnished teepee with gas heat, a movie theater with a small stage, and an indoor/outdoor pool with planetarium-style roof. You know, the essentials.
If you buy this house in East Hampton, we suggest keeping it on the DL and casually inviting friends up for the weekend to your new vacation home. Then watch their faces as they realize that your little getaway cabin is actually the most expensive property in the tony East End, and that it cost you $140 million. And what are you getting for that money? Over 11 acres, 10 bedrooms and lots of waterfront on Georgica Pond.
