Notch outbids Jay-Z to buy most expensive house in Beverly Hills

Completely ignoring the house, Notch doesn't strike me as someone who'd want to live in the Beverly Hills part of LA. Doesn't matter if it's a 2-bed apartment or the house he's bought, it just strikes me as a strange place for him to want to own a property.

As others have mentioned, a chateau in Europe would be understandable (Europe, easy to get to, friendlier tax with his home country, not surrounded by Hollywood "bling" etc.). I could also understand buying a small island or resort on an island somewhere hot. Buying a nice house in that area of Los Angeles doesn't seem to fit for me unless he wants to start participating in the local industries such as film or big budget games. Maybe he does.

He's been reasonably consistent in saying one thing, and meaning/doing another.

Looking at the photos, it look lovely, but it is too big house and you have to do a lot of entertaining in this house. If I win say 100,000,000 in euro lottery I wouldn't spend more than 5 millions euros on a house in somewhere nice. A 5 bedroom house with 3 bathrooms and home cinema and 2 reception room and a office will be enough :)

8 bedrooms, but 18 bathrooms? Seems excessive. I'd like to think if I had that kind of money, I wouldn't fill my house with frivolous shite like an m&m room (and I love me some peanut m&ms). The wine cellar I can get behind, as wine can appreciate and gain value.

He's got a billion quid. I don't think he needs to worry about selling a couple of bottles of wine to make ends meet.

I remember that I got the special edition of Gears of War 1 in a metal box because it was the same price as the normal one. As a result, I got a "making of" DVD that I absent-mindedly watched one afternoon. On it was a "Cribs"-style rip-off show about some technical bloke at Epic showing cameras around the huge mansion he'd bought with his Unreal Engine millions. We was, easily, one of the nerdiest people I've ever seen, on of the kind of guys who just makes you feel uncomfortable with how uncomfortable he is with even the most basic human interaction.

Anyway, the point is that he walked around his own home like it was an alien landscape. The entire place looked untouched since the estate agent handed over the keys. It seemed likely that not a single person had ever touched any of the furniture to do anything but install or clean it. It was pretty obvious that this bloke lived in one single room squirrelled away somewhere that they never showed that just has a bed, PC and TV in it. Or perhaps more likely just lives with his mum and often forgets he even owns a mansion. It was pretty clear he just bought the place because he was now rich and he thought it was a thing that rich people did.

I think it's brilliant he's bought it. He's living a dream at the moment and is probably completely spun around by how much money he has. I dont know if he's married or has a family but even so that's a huge place to rattle around in, once the novelty of free M&M's wears off. It's not just a change of surroundings its a whole change of lifestyle.

It's a thing anyone with that sort of money would do and you'd be mental not to snap up a few properties when you're worth a couple of billion, why restrict yourself. Practical and liveable it isn't though, but for somewhere to crash when you feel like it then why not.

He's single, I think.

It's the ultimate bachelor's pad, though living alone in a place that huge would send me over the balcony post haste.

True, I just wonder how much your reality is changed by that incredible house. You still wake up in the morning, he'll probably have a shuffle on pornhub, eat some junkfood, watch some shit telly, check his email, pop out for milk. Id be all like Eddie Murphy in Trading Places when he has the party after he gets rich. Get your feet off that Persian rug...it's from Persia.

I don't know what this guy looks like, but once gets a Bentley and a Range Rover, and takes girls back to this house, he's getting pussy.

You wouldn't have to worry because your mass murder would most likely land you in prison rather than enabling a dream house purchase.

At least he'd be staying in the big house.
