“B” is for billionaire. Bloomberg. Buffett. Bezos. Each of these billionaires is a household name, a worldwide brand. Each lives in a home equivalent to Mount Olympus – at least in terms of location. Each puts sophisticated sass into their living spaces: from Bezos’ suburban home to Buffett’s beach extravaganza to Bloomberg’s palatial brownstone. No one lives in better real estate swank than these guys.

And what better way to experience life like a billionaire than to live where they live? On Billionaires’ Row in Manhattan or LA. In Washington state alongside other Seattle-area billionaires. Quite a few billionaires, including Bill Gates, live in The Evergreen State. It’s all about location, location, location. And billionaire boldness.

Live Like Bloomberg In New York

For years, even during his tenure as mayor of New York City, billionaire Bloomberg has resided in a Beaux Arts townhouse on the Upper East Side. And to surf NYC’s mega-mansion wave, Bloomberg has slowly been acquiring multiple apartments adjacent to his current residence with hopes to eventually combine the neighboring townhouse and his current home to create the megamansion of all mansions, thereby joining the realty ranks of his fellow billionaires.

Where’s the next best place to live if your not Bloomberg? On Billionaires’ Row in Manhattan. On the 85th Floor. On West 57th Street.

It contains an almost 30-foot private landing made of textured stone. Floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows enhance the 360 degree views of the entire Manhattan skyline, Central Park, the East and Hudson Rivers, the Statue of Liberty and beyond. There’s no part of New York City’s crème de la crème that you won’t be able to see from your home.

The entire apartment is equipped with a Vantage AV System to control, lights, music, shades and security. With a touch of a button, your home transforms into the New York Parthenon that it is, elegantly seated atop the metropolis that never sleeps.


Live Like Buffett In LA

There’s a reason why Buffett purchased a vacation home in Los Angeles. The beach views. The city views. The California sunshine. Living here is a seven-day weekend. And that’s also the reason as to why an exclusive breed of super-developers in Los Angeles have made waves by creating mega mansions in an incompatible area of Beverly Hills dubbed Billionaire’s Row.

Make It Rain Like Bezos In Seattle

Bezos and Bill Gates live in Seattle, along with a dozen other billionaires who live in Washington State. So, by living in Seattle, you could be part of that Washington billionaire elite club.

Bezos is the first centi-billionaire, meaning he has a fortune worth over a $100 billion. Not too shabby for the CEO who created that online one-stop shop, Amazon. If you added all the wealth of the billionaires, their worth would total a combined $9.1 trillion.  That’s trillion with a T! Who wouldn’t want to partake in that pot of gold?

As Buffett said: “I really like my life. I’ve arranged my life so that I can do what I want.” This sentiment gives you license to do the same and more. Take it from the billionaire pros: when you say “yes” to living luxuriously in billionaire style and elegance, you’ll not only be doing what you want like Buffett, but you’ll be living where you want, in the style you want. And that’s billionaire brass at its best.
