Throughout my entire life, I’ve heard people say that ‘money doesn’t buy happiness’ but the older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve traveled, and the more I’ve lived I have realized that those people are either full of shit or they never got around to making enough money to buy happiness.
Sure, you can’t show up at the Happiness Store with you Amex Black Card and say “I’ll take one super-sized order of happiness, please” but you can buy experiences and tangible items that will bring happiness into your life. For instance, if you’re a food lover you can spend $$$$$ on a trip through Italy, Spain, Portugal, and France and eat at some of the finest Michelin-starred restaurants in the world. Or if you’re a homebody you can drop $88 million on this ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY insane mansion in Bel Air, California.
If I had $888 million in assets/the bank I might consider purchasing this Bel Air mansion on the market for $88 million but I don’t. I actually have no concept whatsoever of how much money a person should have to their name before they consider purchasing a home for $88 million but before I get sidetracked let’s check out this walkthrough of the home from Architectural Digest‘s YouTube channel.
This crib has a hidden car elevator because of course it does. Other amenities include a man cave, home theater, stocked 3,000-bottle wine cellar (I’m sold), and pretty much every other luxury you could ever imagine.
Honestly, it’s a shame that Jay-Z and Beyonce don’t live in this house because they’re the only couple in America I can imagine living there. It’s either them, or I can picture Elon Musk living there by himself with 95% of the rooms left empty as he wanders the halls shitposting on Twitter.
If you want to see photographs and specs of this home you can find the listing here on The Williams Estates’ website. And this house is located at 822 Sarbonne Rd in Bel Air if you want to look it up on Google Maps.
