Minecraft's Creator Buys The Most Expensive House In Beverly Hills

In case you needed a material transaction to illustrate just how much money Markus Persson, aka Notch, has having sold Mojang (and Minecraft) to Microsoft, take a look at this: the dude just paid $70 million (and maybe beat out Beyonce & Jay-Z) to buy the most expensive house in Beverly Hills.

The John Aaroe Group just announced the sale, at a record (for Beverly Hills) $70 million. If you want to know what kind of a business deal that is, read this, from the agent's press release:

Persson's purchase included everything in the house from luxury furnishings to exotic electronics such as the automated 54–foot curved glass door in the living room that opens onto an infinity pool with iPad-controlled fountains and spectacular views. Cases of Dom Perignon were part of the deal.

The house is 23,000 square-feet, and features:

...vodka and tequila bars, a candy room, an 18-seat tiered screening room, a state-of-the-art kitchen and an exquisite 18-foot onyx dining room table for 24 that includes place settings by Roberto Cavalli at a cost of $3,700 each. Three high-definition 90-inch television screens bring panoramic views of Los Angeles from the roof into the down stairs lounge – especially breathtaking at night, says De Los Reyes. Art pieces include a replica of James Dean's motorcycle and a chromed Ma Deuce machine gun. On a conventional note, the home has eight bedrooms and 15 bathrooms all equipped with Toto Neorest toilets at a price of $5,600 each. 1718192021...24

It's unclear yet whether Persson intends to demolish the house and turn it into a bunch of giant cubes

Kinda funny though how a few years ago he said he would never sell, especially to a company like microsoft. Then he sells for 2.5 BILLION..and says it wasn't about the money, it was about his sanity.

Sure.

Good for him though, thats a fucking life changing chunk of money right there.

Good for him! We should all aspire to this.

The crazy thing is, he originally made minecraft for his little brother.  His brother asked him to make a game for him, so he made Minecraft.  Pretty crazy how that changed his life.
