(mod note: I messed up your post. Rewritten from memory, adjust if necessary)


That is a nice home, but in a challenging part of Detroit to sell (W Boston Blvd, Detroit, MI 48202

This fine example of the Italian Renaissance Revival architectural style Boston Boulevard home was built in 1912 for the president of an early Detroit automotive company (Charles Lambert, Regal Motor Car Company).In 1918 it was bought by Ossip Gabrilowitsch, who became the conductor of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. It was the presence of Gabrilowitsch that caused local leaders to erect the city's acoustical gem, Orchestra Hall. The other was his wife, Clara Clemens, the daughter of Mark Twain, and a contralto in her own right.

The home next door is 7 beds 4.5 baths 6,185 sqft SOLD: $172,000 on 11/14/14 Lot: 0.3 acres Single Family Built in 1914

Another home in the same block 5 beds 6.5 baths 3,500 SOLD: $71,000 on 12/19/14. People in California pay more than that for cars.

I think the future is modular luxury homes. Homes that can be constructed and deconstructed in room size modules and moved to any location.

Anyway, I see no reason why it couldn't be done. And in any style of home, mix and match.

The closest thing I know is specific home designs, but not true modular luxury buildings. You have to have a method to pull them apart in small units, put two or three units on a flatbed, and haul it to a new location. A luxury home could be made up of 10 to whatever number of units with a goal of being able to disconnect and move even a large mansion in a couple days.

You also need a way to customize exteriors and interiors with removable bits, somewhat like lego technology.

Then the future is whole house stealing.

The heat and instability of Dubai might as well be enjoyed in luxurious settings.

I have to figure that building an aquarium is cheaper than $3 million. this one is big enough so the owner can swim with the fishes

This man wins most improved backyard. I should think there is a basic problem when the water for humans (which requires chemicals) is mixed with the water for plants.

This natural pool with different zones for people and plants seems to make more sense.

The one is improved, though his plant life looks a little sparse.

Third one is interesting. Would you get a lot more bugs and reptiles in your pool with that pond nearby?

A natural swimming pool or natural swimming pond (NSP) is a system consisting of a constructed body of water, where the water is contained by an isolating membrane or membranes, in which no chemicals or devices that disinfect or sterilize water are used, and all clarifying and purifying of the water is achieved through biological filters and plants rooted hydroponically in the system. The first NSPs were built in the early 1980s in Austria, where they are known as Schwimmteiche.

Some of the first companies to use the idea of NSPs commercially were the Austrian firm, Biotop Landschaftsgestaltung, and the German firm, BioNova. In 1990 the first public NSP was built by BioNova, followed by another one in 1991 built by Biotop in Unzmarkt (Styria, Austria). Today, there are over 20,000 NSPs in Europe, 100 of which are actually public pools in Germany.

Don't know about bugs and reptiles. It's a good question.

This $250 million spec home complete with automobiles art work features 12 bedroom and 21 baths and $30 million in automobiles.

This image is actually from a real estate advertisement for a Bel Air mansion.



Yvonne Niami, the wife of mega-mansion builder Nile Niami of Skyline Development Inc., filed for divorce January 2017, a decision that could have significant implications for the developerís real estate holdings. The couple was married for more than 18 years before separating two years ago, according to the divorce filing, which cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. This spec home may be priced at $500 million, and is somewhat notorious as it is on the end of a street of less than 1000' where Jennifer Aniston bought a home built into the 1950's. Jennifer Aniston has been going to municipal meeting to protest the construction of this monster that is now over 100K square feet.
