Jan 13th 2011 10:47PM Is this Kelsey Grammar's extra Kapalua home? I'm being serious. His divorce may be causing the fire sale. Or did he sell that house a few years back. That plantation course is a tough one. Don't play it in the off season (or when they've sanded the greens) - you'll have wasted your money. The least fun and least "fair" golf course I've ever played. Great views though.
Jan 13th 2011 10:43PM I love the tongue-in-cheek "critical 12 inches".
That said...the iPad control is, in fact, a negative. While Diddy is diddling around with an iPad to control this and that, Mr. Cowell has a capable crew of humans doing the mundane tasks for him. Win for Cowell.
Jan 10th 2011 12:32PM Wow is that ugly. Remarkable wastes of space. Cool home office though and nicely outfitted gym, but damn, that's one ugly house from top to bottom.
Jan 7th 2011 1:43PM Wow. How remarkably deceiving. Those photos (specifically the water color/clarity) are majorly photoshopped. Look at the real photos at the agent's website linked above...and here: www.avalonpartnersltd.com.
Jan 4th 2011 9:59AM Regarding Topridge...Wow!
It sold even lower than my previously posted expectation...
"Depending on reserve, it could/should sell for $3.75-$4.25MM at auction in this economy (given the tax responsibilities that come with the property)."
Dec 20th 2010 4:57PM I think there are several nice features (facade is outstanding; corner location, floors are nice, etc.). The fact that very different personalities share the home makes it come across as wonky. And in fact, some rooms and features are wonky. If it flowed together better, used the space a little better and didn't have some bizarre (to me) amenities/details, it could a hot property.
Dec 14th 2010 2:24PM why can't you post images? Even "after the jump"...?
Dec 9th 2010 2:48PM Having had every variety of those macaroons (many times), I can attest that they are fantastic. Best I've had...in New York.
Dec 8th 2010 9:09PM The idea of the ad is great. But the message is wrong. It puts the thieves in a sympathetic position (sort of like, "can you blame them?"). Instead, I'd have turned it around and put the focus on Ecclestone. Here are some other phrases that could've been used (note, these are just of the top of my head):
To show the dedication of an owner to the brand
"I'd go through anything to hold onto my Hublot."
To show off the watch's durability using a familiar phrase:
"Both of us can take a lickin' but we'll still keep tickin'"
or figure out a way to play on the Shakespeare quote: "Time is the justice that examines all offenders.”
Dec 7th 2010 11:52AM I'd get these cool Penguin shoes for myself...in "gargoyle"...
