I know Kevin Garnett is a rich, rich man. But he must be pulling in some serious endorsement loot on the side. Why, you ask? Because the man's house in Minnesota is on the market for an obscene $53.5 million. And we're in a housing slump right now.
Good God that's ridiculous. Most high profile athletes have houses somewhere in the range of $5 mil-to-$15 mil, like Alonzo Mourning. A $53 million mansion with 9 bedrooms, two pools (one indoors, one outdoors), and more than a quarter mile of lakeshore is the kind of place a billionaire like Scrooge McDuck lives in. Or Mr. Burns.
Although I think one of our sarcastic-ass readers nailed it on the head - "I thought $55 mil would buy the whole state of Minnesota."
Here are some of the more ridiculous features of the house:
Garage Spaces: 12
The man obviously is not concerned about the cost of gas. Or concerned about global warming.
In addition to the sheer size of the house, there's also 13 acres of property to romp around on. But here's what kills me. The real estate company selling this thing says it's a "single family home." In all seriousness, about 6 families could take up residence in this mansion and you'd never know it. If you want to read all the details, here you go.
Anyway, KG, I salute you. I wish you the best of luck in finding a home as equally ridiculous as this one in the Boston area.
