Teenagers can be the worst at times. It’s okay, I can say it because I used to be one. They’re moody, selfish, unpredictable and figuring out who they want to be in life – a very dangerous cocktail when you think about it. The last thing anyone wants is a teenager with any sort of entitlement or soapbox because things get out of hand quickly, as demonstrated in the stories we have in this blog. This week in financial blunders we show how teens can cost you much more money than just child-rearing costs.
Have you ever wondered what the priciest homes in the country look like and cost? What does a cool $100 million or more get you? Well, you don’t have to wonder anymore. Check out this pretty cool infographic that features some of the most expensive and beautiful homes in our great country.
How about the Copper Beach Farm, in Greenwich, CT? For a mere $190 million, you could enjoy a stately mansion with 12 bedrooms, nine baths, a full mile of Atlantic shoreline (including two private islands, just in case you want to get away), and a 75-foot heated pool.
Or, if you prefer city life, spend just $100 million and you can enjoy life at the City Spire Penthouse in New York City. Considered by many to be NYC’s most exclusive abode, the City Spire Penthouse comes with six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a private elevator, one of NYC’s highest terraces and a wine cellar that can hold 1,000 bottles. That’s a lot of wine. According to the City Spire Penthouse website, this residence, designed by architect Helmut Jan, takes up 8,000 square feet plus 3,000 square feet of exterior grounds, and comes with a 24-hour doorman.
If the hustle and bustle of city life is not your cup of tea, you could spend your time at the stunning Tranquility, in Lake Tahoe, NV. For a mere $75 million, you can spend your leisure time at your own horse stable or in your private theater. Speaking of private, how about a personal lake and boathouse? Did I mention that it has nine bedrooms and 14 baths? Why would anyone need more bathrooms than bedrooms? Anyway, it also has a few par-three, over-the-water golf holes.
