Shaquille O'Neal's house in Windermere, Florida (suburb of Orlando). 64,000 square feet. 11 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms.




Tiger Wood's house on Jupiter Island. Or maybe Elin's home after the divorce.

Wow, Warren Buffet's house is pretty small, considering he is one of the wealthiest men in the world. I think my cousin has a bigger house than he has.

It's still 5,000+ square feet. I know for a billionaire that's pretty small. Still, it's not like he's living in a cottage.

He bought that house in 1959 and has lived there ever since. He says he paid $100,000 for it which was a very large sum then.

He bought a huge spanish colonial estate that's in terrible shape but is battling with local agencies over its demolition. This house is actually larger than it appears.

Actually it was even less than that:

Quote:
The "Oracle of Omaha" lives in mighty modest digs, given the size of his fortune. He still resides in the gray stucco home he bought in 1958 for $31,500. Totaling about 6,000 square feet, in 2003 the Happy Hollow house was assessed at just $700,000 (though the value investor thought it was really worth about $500,000). Buffett sold one of his two properties in Laguna Beach, Calif., but retained one valued at about $4 million. That's still less than one hundredth of a percent of his estimated net worth.

Now, I don't want you to think I posted the above just to correct you, because, relative to his wealth, the difference is insignificant.

The reason I posted it was because of this quote:.

Quote:

2 quick points.
  1. He has another $4 million home (any pics?)
  2. Its absoluetly mind-blowing to think that a $4million home is still less than 1/100 of one percent of his worth!!!!

$31,500? Still a good chunk of change back then.
