First and foremost, we would like to wish you and your family a splendid holiday season and wonderful 2015 full of health, fulfillment, prosperity and nothing but sheer bliss…
By now, you know we were an integral contributor of many architectural elements, fixtures, furnishings and objet d’art of the most expensive contemporary private residence built on spec ever. In case you forgot…here is a link to the CBS News story covering this property nationally from Saturday three weeks ago (it is about two minutes in length): http://www.cbsnews.com/news/selling-an-85-million-home-and-the-lifestyle-behind-it.
We are happy to let you know (in case it matters…) that the house recently sold following a bidding war between Jay-Z & Beyonce and Minecraft developer Markus “Notch” Persson who ultimately purchased the house at $70 million; here are some links from today covering the sale:
