    Will Howard ever talk about living in FL? Has he mentioned that he has a house down there at all?

    Who will be his first celeb guest in FL? Jimmy?

    No. He's a common man and too humble.

    For some strange reason, Billy Joel will be close by.

    Billy Joel Buys Three Manalapan Properties for $40 Million
    Friday, February 20, 2015, by Sean McCaughan


    [​IMG]

    Billy Joel "has just agreed" to buy a huge Manalapan estate which Curbed featured on its 25 Most Expensive South Florida Listings map for a whopping$22 million, adding it to two neighboring properties which he purchased last year, creating an eight acre compound that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Worth and which cost him $40 million.

    GossipExtra reports that, although the deal "hasn't been made official yet" Joel has signed a contract for 1960 S. Ocean Boulevard, to add to 1920 S. Ocean Boulevard and 1940 S. Ocean Boulevard, both of which Joel owns through an LLC. 1960 is a massive 23,000 square foot house with seven bedrooms, 13 baths, and a garage for 30 cars. It has four stories, and a secure tunnel under A1A that provides access to the ocean. 1940 is an empty lot, while 1920 is also a big luxurious house that clocks in at 13,000 square feet. It may or may not have a tunnel too.

    As if he'd ever do anything fun like bowl--he'd be too grossed out over touching the balls and/or worried about breaking a nail.

    I'll always be curious about this purchase. IIRC the house wasn't even on the market, right? He paid way over the market value and then made the 10 million dollar "closet"/studio. He didn't even visit the house before he bought it if I remember. Was he just desperate to buy something? Is his house more desireable than any others in the area which he could have bought at market value? Did Beth just fall in love with this house and go all Veruca Salt on him?

    I understand the NY tax thing, but he could have bought any one of dozens of mansions down there and paid less. I don't get it. According to the article posted above, Billy Joel bought three plots (1 empty and 2 with houses) for about the same price as Howard's 1 house. What gives?

    Isn't Lake Worth the biggest ghetto shit hole in all of Florida?

    Based on this description, I'd rather have BJ's property.

    It's about 8 acres and it's beachfront and it's about $40M which is $13M cheaper than Gunky's cold, lifeless estate.

    The body of water noted in the article is Lake Worth. Manalapan is an exclusive barrier island.

    The city of Lake Worth is mostly crap, but not the worst. Not even close. The downtown area has a bunch of nice restaurants.

    The hip young party types are in Miami. The older wealthier ones have trended to that area.

    Trump is there...Rush Limbaugh is there...his next door neighbor is billionaire investment fund manager Nelson Peltz.

    The 10 million dollar closet is kind of a joke they brought upon themselves. They made renovations...blah blah blah...new stairs..redo everything to set up for the closet..new roof...

    Reality...security construction.

    Panic room...counter measures if there are intruders....and forget hearing that because those contractors will not disclose.

    But it's what the ultra rich do now and he is certainly one to want that stuff.


    As for paying more than it's value...

    This house was owned by Paul Castellano

    [​IMG]

    It was purchased from the Castellano family for about 2 million.

    The renovation done was quite a bit more and the value is not ascertainable.

    To the left is the multi car garage...a his/her's master bathroom was built above it.


    Long story short...the pipes in the walls are gold. Not plated. Gold.

    I spent one day there. I had a second job in construction doing marble installation with my friend. I was instructed to just stand there...and not look freaked before we went in. I had a shard of gold stuck in my boot heel leaving.

    I can't even approximate what that value of the bathrooms were Everything that should be metal, ceramic or porcelain was gold....7 pound shower heads carved with angles? Gold...baseball bat sized steamers? Gold. Toilet? Gold.

    ALL plumbing hidden in the walls throughout the house? Gold. (does corrode so no leaks!)

    There is no way that is reflected in the property value.

    On the life of my family I swear this is not a joke or some bs. I left that place feeling that I never understood what true wealth was before that day.
