Pictured above are the mega mansions of Derek Jeter, Lebron James, Michael Jordan and Tom Brady. Which one do you like best and why?

Derek Jeter’s Mega Mansion – 30,875 square feet / located in Tampa, FL

Lebron James’ Mega Mansion – 35,000 square feet / located in Akron, OH

Michael Jordan’s Mega Mansion – 28,000+ square feet / located in Jupiter, FL

Tom Brady’s Mega Mansion – 22,000 square feet / located in Brentwood, CA

    Brady’s house. Jeter’s is pretty awful, though the lot and location are very nice. Lebron’s is terrible. Jordan’s is going to completely throw off the feel in The Bear’s Club. I feel bad for the residents. Brady’s looks the best and has the best location.

    How is Brady’s *only* 22,000 sqft? The footprint of it looks at least as big as Jeter’s, and Brady’s is three stories, probably with some basement area too.

      Yeah, his house is way over 22,000 sq. ft. Definitely up in the 30,000’s.

      Jeter’s is 21,000 TOTAL sq ft (according to the property appraiser). Brady’s is probably 22K UNDER AIR. I’m almost certain California and Florida account for square footage differently, and the lack of consistency makes inaccurate square-footage accounts common.

    Having seen the interior of LeBron’s house, it’s pretty amazing. His definitely gets my vote.

      Where did you see the interior of LeBron’s house?? I’ve got to know. He’s one of my favorite athlete’s, even though he left Cleveland like he did.

      I would love to see is two story walk-in closet.

    Brady’s beats all these others down like a punch from Mike Tyson in the old days.

    I personally like Michael Jordan’s the best. I like how Jeter’s is on the water, and if I could have my dream home, one my favorite options would be on the water, but I like MJ’s the best because:

    1. It has a separate wing, which I find fascinating. It give’s it some intrigue.
    2. It’s Michael “Air” Jordan, a guy who knows classy. I would imagine it has a cigar bar and everything. It probably has an indoor basketball court.
    3. It’s located on a golf course, which would be great, because I would probably go and play everyday.
    4. Lastly, I just like how it looks. I can’t wait to see it when it’s finished.

    NONE OF THEM, nor ANY like them………every last one of ’em are HIDEOUSLY useless, psychotically OVER SIZED, gargantuan MONSTROSITIES of the most WRETCHED kind. Such revolting & raging greed, ego, materialism and UTTER INSANITY with regard to such completely and eternally IMPOSSIBLE size, and the forever inability to utilize even 1/2 to 3/4 of it (at most) with ANY kind of realistic frequency makes my stomach turn.

      Okay Barney, if you were to build your dream home, and money was no object, how big would it be at it’s biggest?

      For me, a realistic “big”, while using all of the space would be in the vicinity of 10,000 sq ft. I would have a pool, but it would be outside.

        GREAT question Al…..and I’ve ALWAYS got the perfect answer! It’s just my partner, dog and I……but I’d still have a good size house WITH a BIG indoor pool if I spent even half the year in the northern part of the country.

        My Dream home for the three of us (and of course, there would be MANY more dogs & cats rescued from the shelters in my fantasy 🙂 would be MAX, a 4 to 5000 square foot home, preferably mid-century modern, that I would RENOVATE TO BREATH-TAKING PERFECTION! It would be STUNNING, but completely relate-able as a single family home. You see, I’ve got what is a VERY good idea of the size of 98% of the HUUUUGE homes featured here because I used to work in real estate, in a historic, very high-income suburb of metro-Detroit called Grosse Pointe Farms. I grew up and still live here, and I’ve been in many homes 10,000 square feet and up, so I know EXACTLY what they feel like. I would NEVER want a house that huge….and I still feel completely confident (although I’ve got at it tooth & nail with other HOTR readers) the clear majority of people who have homes that huge DO NOT, and most likely NEVER will truly use allllllllll that room, not even once. Ya’ get where I’m comin’ from? “Subtlety (and REALITY) equals class”….but that’s just me 🙂

    Barney, I understand what you’re saying. But why are you on a website about “homes of the rich” if you don’t want to look at monsterous houses? Even the smallest homes on here are still 10,000 square feet and that’s huge compared to what the average person is living in.

      You must be new, or newer at least, to the blog, Dave. I’ve posted many, many times, ranting & raving about the INCOMPREHENSIBLE AND REVOLTING excess that has become BERSERK in this country in the past 20 or so years. I do so because….

      I ALWAYS have, ALWAYS DO, and ALWAYS WILL come from a school of thought that says “Subtlety equals class”. And by that I mean that as far as architecture and interior design (two of my FIVE TOP favorite things in ALL of life) are concerned, the ABSURD, USELESS, REVOLTING AND HOPELESSLY CONSPICUOUS building of GARGANTUAN homes that will very most likely NEVER be realistically utilized with ANY kind of true regularity simply turns my stomach. More specifically, I LOATHE with a BURNING PASSION the accumulation of insane amounts of material objects…whatever they may be….houses that are TEN times bigger than someone will EVER REALLY NEED, clothes, cars, jewelry, art, etc. etc. etc. JUST FOR POSSESSIONS’ SAKE. Human greed, ego, vanity and the truly sad & pitiful need to DROWN ones’ self with ANY accumulation of ANY kind of objects, from old newspapers to multi-million-dollar homes (COUGH, cough, Nicholas Cage!) is an ETERNAL testament to the worst in the human psyche, all too often, I’m afraid. Don’t get me wrong…..I LOVE all things historic, beautiful, colorful, vintage, one-of-a-kind, exquisite, blah blah blah……but ALL OF THAT is RENDERED USELESS AND INVISIBLE to me when ONE PERSON possesses THEM ALL. If I was a guest in a 2500 square foot home, that was PERFECTLY designed, built & decorated with ALL the appropriate art, furnishings, accessories, lighting, window treatments and colors, versus a 25,000 sq. ft. home filled with metric TONS of CHEAP ASS crap that was ONLY there to intimidate and to fill the freakin’ place up……I’d take the 2500 sq. ft. home…..in a HEART beat. The word “rich” is NOT synonymous with the phrase “ridiculously huge”….and NEVER will be.

    I think the architect who designed Tom Brady’s house, who states it 22,000 sq.ft. knows more than any of you…

    However, while I find both Brady and his wife utterly useless with no appeal… that said… Landry is like obviously the Star-chitect in the group of these homes so I’d say his design at the end of the dayprobably is more appealing to the masses. That said, I find it funny how ridiculously much Brady overpaid for the lot. The house next door to Klum / Seal for about the price they paid just for a SMALLER, WORSE SITED lot. Bubble POPPED!

      My house is 10,000 sq.ft and Brady’s utterly dwarfs it, so I think I know more than you.

      Plus if you learned to use your eyes, you could see that Jordan’s house has a smaller footprint than Brady’s and his is supposed to be 28,000 sq.ft. It is also clearly bigger than Jeter’s 31,000 sq.ft house. Then add in the fact that Brady’s has at least 3 floors and Jordan’s only has two floors and then basic common sense should have kicked in at this point and you should have figured out that this house is bigger than 22,000 sq. ft.

        You’re are clearly a 4th grader who has shit Venom.

        Get over your fake life… a 22,000 sq.ft house would dward fo 10,000 sq.ft. house, its more then twice the size you dumbass. And we all know that isn’t your Porcsche and you don’t have a 10,000 sq.ft. house.. Because if you did you wouldnt tell us in every possible post you can. EAT SHIT!

        Right Venom, because aerial views are clearly indicative of a house’s square footage. Your reasoning skills are quite astounding. Congrats.

    ‘3. It’s located on a golf course, which would be great, because I would probably go and play everyday.’

    Brady’s house is amazing looking but I grew up with a golf course in our backyard and it was awesome…

    I also love frank lloyd wright and jordan’s looks reminiscent of his style…

    I’m with all that said “e” none of the above.

    I don’t understand a world that pays people such exorbitant sums to play games, while so many starve. I don’t applaud these people nor do I find their taste in homes particularly noteworthy.

    Add another vote to “None of the above”. In my eyes, there’s nothing unique about any of them other than the size.
