Beverly Park, Los Angeles

Beverly Park

A few days ago I found a very posh area in Los Angeles while surfing on Google Earth. First I had no idea which area in L.A. it could be, but according to this article on Forbes it’s “Beverly Park”, an exclusive, gated community for the very very upperclass. It’s the highest accumulation of mega swimming pools and tennis courts I’ve ever seen.

People like Eddie Murphy, Denzel Washington and Haim Saban have an estate their.

Holiday on Gran Canaria in September

July 22, 2006

OK, my eBay auction failed. There where zero bids when the auction ended…

I got a little depressed and decided to take a vacation on Gran Canaria for the second time in my life. I’ll stay in a nice bungalow with bedroom and balcony on the first floor for 2 weeks just for me. ­čÖé

The coolest thing on Gran Canaria are the dunes located direct at the beach in Maspalomas:

The bungalow complex is called “Vistaflor”:

Your own Marlboro Country for $110,000,000.00

Rancho El Cojo

The most expensive property on Sotheby’s Realty.com in California these days is the Rancho El Cojo in Santa Barbara.

The ranch includes nine miles of pristine ocean coastline, sandy beaches with sea lion haul-out areas and a working cattle ranch since the early 1900’s.

Amazing! $110 Mio. for a piece of land. I’m wondering if this property will ever be sold at Sotheby’s and keep an eye on it!

Warren Buffett power lunch sells for $620,100.00

July 6, 2006

Bids on lunch with billionaire investor Warren Buffett finished with a record price of $620,100.00 on eBay. The winner of the auction is an ebay member with an username of “fastisslow”.
Money raised by the auction benefits the San Francisco-based Glide Foundation, which helps the poor and the homeless.

Yongping Duan, the man behind “fastisslow”, obviously considers it money well spent. The Californian was ahead of the pack when the hammer went down on the auction of lunch with Warren Buffett. He topped the bid from magicyourlife and will now get to take himself and seven friends to meet the legendary investor, or world’s greatest philanthropist, depending on how you view him.
