#1 – Hedge fund mogul Larry Robins, who lives in one of the largest homes in New Jersey, is building a $10 million dollar indoor ice rink. Larry lives in a 60,000 square foot mega mansion located on Rio Vista Drive in Alpine, NJ. He got permission to build the structure on an adjacent plot of land. Before being allowed to build the structure, he had the ice rink underneath a large bubble as seen in the picture above. It took him a long time to get permission because residents didn’t want the ice rink to be an eyesore. So, Larry had the idea to make the exterior look like an actual house to fit in with the surrounding homes.
#2 – Real estate developer Ramin Messian built a $7 million oasis in the backyard of his 10-bedroom Las Vegas, NV mansion. There is a swimming pool and multiple Jacuzzis that hold an incredible 180,000 gallons of water, and have features like shimmering iridescent tile, an island gazebo for celebrations, and a wrought-iron bridge to cross the watery expanse. In the massive pool, there’s a rocky waterfall as well as a waterslide. Messian spent $1 million to import 300 palm trees. He also created a beach with sand imported from Malibu. Get this, he fills up one of the jacuzzis with Champagne!! The outdoor space was featured on Million Dollar Rooms.
