For $8M, you can buy this NJ house from Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs
Ever wanted to live like rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs?
Well, OK. No. Neither did we. That's awfully specific and it never occurred to us. But man, the artist formerly known as Puff Daddy has some nice digs.
You won't find much that feels rap mogul-specific in this $8 million mansion at 207 Anderson Avenue in Alpine — it's more about simple elegance than bling, at least as pictured on its real estate listing via Trulia through Prominent Properties Sotheby's International Realty.
But there are some nice touches you don't get in just any multi-million-dollar property — like a movie theater and a basketball court.
As described in the listing, the home's "spectacular sunset views, tranquil swimming pool with waterfalls, lighted tennis court (and) private putting green help make this one of Alpine's most gorgeous privately gated fully secured hilltop estates."
The interior has a grand double-story foyer, formal living and dining rooms, a great room with a fireplace, a mahogany paneled library, a kitchen with a breakfast area, three master bedroom suites with sitting rooms (rap moguls like to have guests, we suppose), and another three bedrooms with private suites and walk-in closets.
In the basement, you'll find a bunch of dingy old boxes and ... no, we're kidding. You'll find a kitchen, wet bar, custom home theater, aquarium and a sunlit bedroom with a full bathroom. Of course.
Like to work out? There's a fully equipped gym. Like to entertain? There's a six-car attached garage.
Living like Diddy isn't cheap. Sure, seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms on a 3.25-acre property gives you space to strech out, but the asking price of $8 million isn't for the paycheck-to-paycheck crowd. Property taxes alone were nearly $47,000 last year.
