    The price per square foot is o.k. but I’m not sure about the rest of it. Why can’t this sell for a lot more? Maybe it’s the ugly entrance hall in black.

  • AndrewF

    I don’t understand why this place has been such an albatross. Sure it’s butt-ugly, but then so are many other homes that sell for many times its price. It’s huge, it sits on a large chunk of land, and isn’t Farmington a desirable location? (especially once someone called ‘fifty cents’ moves out)

    It doesn’t sell because it’s hideous and at fifty cents it would be almost worth it. This turd sits on 17 acres of land, has 19 bedrooms and a nightclub/casino. It would be successful as a lurid destination resort for small groups of A list celebs, kinda like charter yachts are. Call the arsonists!

    Glad he found a way to make money (and loose it), but this is honestly one of the most architecturally appalling homes I’ve seen. No redeeming value whatsoever. The rear elevation looks like a bloated clubhouse in a 55+ community.

  • C E

    The entire interior is extremely dated— wtf did he spend millions renovating? It looks like it would all be the original finishes when built. As a whole, its ugly as shit. If he had renovated the interior well maybe someone would buy it.

      That’s the intrinsic flaw in ‘contemporary’ or ‘modern’ architecture and décor. After almost any length of time, it looks strangely out of place, obsolete, or ‘dated’ – nothing prior to right now, today, has any appeal whatsoever. And that’s the beauty of authentic classic architecture and décor. Whether it’s inspired by ‘French,’ ‘Mediterranean,’ ‘Spanish,’ ‘colonial,’ ‘English,’ or any other style from centuries ago, it’s all well and good, even today, and will be forever after. Part of the reason, of course, is that historic styles were developed by true artists with impeccable taste and consummate skill and craftsmanship, all in the service of their rich, noble, and very powerful patrons. Modern styles are genuine garbage, requiring neither skill or craftsmanship beyond what is necessary to pour concrete, install windows, attach stone and wood veneers, and cleverly place colorful light bulbs, all in the service of the middle class and the nouveau riche, neither of which has the mindset (breeding) to appreciate much else.

        I get that often contemporary / modern dates quicker– but lets be real – nothing about the interior looks like it would have even been current in 20 years. He’s owned it a few years. I have have seen plenty of contemporary houses that still look good 10 years later.

        • Barnabus Samuel

          I’m a huge fan of well done contemporary and mid-century modern homes, C E. I work as a photographer here in southeastern Michigan and I shoot mostly high-to-very-high-end homes here and have captured LOTS & lots of fantastic homes, with modern being my favorite. How anyone can dismiss an entire genre of architecture that is inarguably here to stay is mind boggling and shows a true, willful ignorance of residential design, both in & out.

    It would cost 5 times the ask to remodel. No thanks!

  • agman

    He needs to just take an L and donate his home to the Farmington community as a musuem like Barbra Streisand did when her 70s Malibu estate wasn’t able to sell.

  • systemspm

    Imagine 50 Cent and the G Unit crew playing a game of Racquetball lol…

  • Sunburst

    This home has now been sold to a nursing company, who plan to turn it into a caretaking facility for the elderly. 50 couldn’t be happier.
