When you become a billionaire, you'll probably do these two things right away: #1) Email Celebrity Net Worth so we can tell the world your inspirational story. And #2) Buy a big fat mansion. When I imagine my life as a billionaire (or humble $100 millionaire), the main thing I dream about is my future mansion. As someone who currently lives in a 650 square foot apartment, I can't wait to have a massive bedroom, multi-car garage, pool, hot tub, tennis court, sex dungeon, movie theater, gym… It's gonna be amazing.
I don't have any specific idea of where I want my future mansion to be. California is nice. Florida has low taxes. There are lots of good options. On the other hand, if you do end up becoming a billionaire, there's a VERY good chance you'll end up living on one of the following streets. Why is that? Because according to a recent report from real estate site Zillow, these are the 15 most expensive residential streets in the United States based on median home value:
#1. Indian Creek Island Road – Miami, Florida
Located in Miami, Indian Creek is home to roughly 100 extremely wealthy people. Jay-Z and Beyonce own a waterfront home here. Every house is waterfront actually. Every backyard faces a private, extremely exclusive golf club. Bottom line, if you find yourself living on Indian Creek Island Road some day, you will be very happy. Please invite us to a party.
#2 and #3: Beverly Park – Beverly Hills, California
Located in a gated community at the top of Beverly Hills, if you call Beverly Park home, you are doing very well in life. Your neighbors include Sly Stallone, Denzel Washington, Tim McGraw/Faith Hill, Barry Bonds, Magic Johnson, Mark Wahlberg and many more. Here's Marky Mark's recently completed palace:
#4: Lazy Lane Blvd – Houston, Texas
Proving that everything is bigger in Texas, if you lived on Lazy Lane Blvd in Houston, your house will look something like this:
#5: Conyers Farm Drive – Greenwich, Connecticut
If you're worth hundreds of millions or billions of dollars and want to be close to NYC, there's a very very good chance you live in Greenwich, Connecticut. And Conyers Farm Drive is an exclusive gated community that was developed in the 1980s. Each lot is a minimum 10 acres. Some are 20+ acres. If you're lucky enough to list Conyers Farm Drive as your address, here's what your house probably looks like:
#6: Strawberry Park Court – Avon, Colorado
If you're a billionaire and you love to ski, Strawberry Park Court in Avon, Colorado is your future home. You'll be located near the Beaver Creek Resort, roughly 2.5 hours from Denver and you'll live in a house that looks like this:
#7: Field Point Circle – Greenwich, Connecticut
Last year, a house sold on Field Point Circle in Greenwich for $120 million. It was originally listed for $190 million, so the buyer actually got a deal! Here's what that house looks like:
#8: Coopers Neck Lane – Southampton, NY
Aside from Greenwich and Beverly Hills, nothing epitomizes extreme wealth quite like the Hamptons. And if you're a multi-multi-billionaire looking to buy a property out there, you'll probably end up looking at Coopers Neck Lane. Here's how that could turn out:
#9: Nimes Road – Bel Air, California
If your mom ever gets worried that you might be hanging out with a tough crowd in West Philadelphia, don't be too upset if she sends you off to live with with relatives on Nimes Road in Bel Air.
#10: Arvida Parkway – Miami, Florida
If you wanted to live on the #1 street, but couldn't swing the down payment, nearby Arvida Parkway isn't a bad consolation prize:
