When I first looked at the picture, I thought the long, blue arch beside the pool was the slide. And I was like, whoa, that's huge and it looks really steep and it doesn't even look like it ends at the pool! That's amazing! How does that work? I need to try that! That would be one of the most amazing things in the world! And then I saw the actual slide, a puny and miserable reflection of what I'd first thought it was, and the despair was like a torrent of cold sand smothering my heart, its joy, its hope. All that remains is a desiccant wasteland of sadness and betrayal. Thanks for that, subby.

What's an infinity pool? Is that a slide into space because that would be totally worth it.

It's one of those pools that drain over the edge and have a dropoff, usually on a ledge or penthouse. They look like you can just swim over and fall into oblivion.

That pool's really going to hurt your resale value when it comes time to sell.  Plus the maintenance and all the other b.s. that comes with those bacteria traps.

No thank you.

no, but you're stuck with Dish and dialup, and on-street parking, which really sucks on race day.

Swimming in an infinity pool -- one of the many things Farkers never have to worry about having the chance to do...

I'm trying REALLY hard to see what that penthouse has that one a tenth the price, a mere $24 million (a pittance really *sips tea*), wouldn't buy.  I'm not seeing it.

I wonder how far £240m would go towards making this home.

I'd like that pool.

A view of Monaco, the whole thing.

Monaco is really interesting. There's no real estate to really recommend it as a country. It's built mostly on the sides of hills overlooking the Med with a few flat spaces here and there for palaces and such, and a harbor area for tourists and yachts. It exists as a place for rich people to put their stuff, who then hop over towards the French Riviera or Italy or etc. The middle of the road condos there are meh but cost a million or two. High demand, lots of money, income tax free.

That place looks like, even though you "own" it, there are many monthly recurring charges, which I don't like. Sorry, no sale here.
 
2014-08-21 10:34:01 AM  
Hmm. I'd be happier with the £240m. No thanks.
 
2014-08-21 11:08:22 AM  
Still not sure if I want the penthouse or a yacht.
