EekEekEek WOW!! What a BEAUTIFULL home! That would be way too much house for single guy like me! You would have to have a clothing to match. You can`t be living in a house like that dressed like a bum. LOL

You can do anything if you put your mind into it. The sky is the limit! Cool

    That house is a little over 9000 square feet. In the early 2000's there was a NBA player named Matt G that had a 30,000 square foot home built for himself. I think he lived in it for a few years before selling it for a loss.

      I have a feeling eventually they'll regret buying such a large expensive house.  Sooner or later it will have to be sold.  Who's going to buy it?

          The land is what would attract future potential buyers. Homes that size on smaller lots would be lucky to sell for anything over $2million unless it was in a very desirable community.

            JJ prince would. For $10 mil.

              I agree, the value there is the land, it looks lovely. The house itself, well, the style just doesn't appeal to me. 

              In any case, I hope they enjoy it.

                I do believe that even after winning they would have been very happy living in the same house they had before buying this one.

                I would say they didn't buy it because they had all that money now. They bought it to get away from everyone after their extreme media exposure.

                    There are thousands of places for sale that would be perfectly nice and let you get away from people. There are a lot less of them that are that big and don't call attention to themselves or allow all the people you want to get away from to see pictures showing every room in your supposedly private house on the property's own website. If they bought this place just to get away from people I'd say the thought process ranks right up there with the TV appearance.

                    I'm a bit curious about how the media got the information. Did somebody manage to follow them home, or did they get more great legal advice and make it easy by buying in their own name?

                      " did they get more great legal advice and make it easy by buying in their own name?"

                      I realize it makes your day to criticize these folks but the Robinson's actually got good legal advice in purchasing their home under a trust and not under their real name. With enough snooping around most folks can follow the transaction trail and figure out who actually purchased the home . FYI, many celebrities follow similar advice from their counsel.

                        The house is JUNK! Maybe they bought it for the Property. Property TAX is going to Break them. LOL

                          I don't think that house is junk but it should have been hidden amongst all those trees, not in the open like a sore thumb.

                            Junk is usually referred to something that is worthless. If you think the house is junk, how are property taxes going to break them? If the county tax assessors don't agree with your wisdom then they could very well have a decent tax bill.

                            For the most part, TN property taxes are one of the lowest in the nation so I think the Robinson's will do just fine.

                              I think the home itself is well hidden from the road. With 320 acres, the driveway leading up to the house is quite substantial and I doubt they walk to their mail box unless they enjoy the exercise.
