  • Bachelor Pad Made Of Liquid Stone [16 Photos]

    India’s SPASM Design Architects looked to the large amounts of basalt rock for inspiration in constructing this home in Khopoli. Using granular basalt mixed with water, cement, and sand, they created a unique black concrete to construct the home, allowing it to seamlessly blend in with its surroundings. The modern, open plan puts focus on the incredible natural surroundings rather than what’s inside the home. And one look off the cliff edge is all you need to see why. There is also a pool overlooking the edge of the cliff for those rare dry days where you yearn for the refreshing wetness of monsoon season. 

  • Live Long And Prosper In This Star Trek Bachelor Pad [22 Photos]

    Marc Bell, best known as former CEO of FriendFinder Networks, a company we’ve never heard of and whose services we have certainly never used when drunk and lonely, is selling his home in Boca Raton, Florida. And at $35 million, it’s the most expensive listing in the city’s history. From the outside, the 8-bedroom, 16-bath home looks like any run of the mill Mediterranean-style mansion you’ve seen. But inside the 27,000 square foot home is a replica of the control room from Star Trek’s Enterprise spaceship along with a “Call of Duty” themed room and a huge arcade. Outside you’ll find a basketball court, pool, and lounge complete with a giant chess set. For more info, beam yourself up to Douglas Elliman Real Estate. And may the force be with you or something.

  • Dracula’s Transylvania Bachelor Pad For Sale [25 HQ Photos]

    You’d have to be batty to pass this up: Transylvania’s Bran Castle, also known as “Dracula’s Castle,” is up for sale. Although the castle was never the residence of Vlad the Impaler, the basis for Bram Stoker’s Dracula character, it is believed to be the influence for the setting of the gothic novel. The 57-room, 22-acre castle features a dungeon, music room, lavish dining areas, tall towers…and no bathrooms or plumbing. But don’t let the state of this fixer-upper scare you: With half a million visitors per year paying about $7 admission, the castle basically pays for itself. The price isn’t listed, but it’s believed to sell for over $135 million. Remember that scene in “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” where Keanu Reeves is seduced by the three brides (including Monica Bellucci!)? A chance at that is totally worth $135 mil.

Outside you’ll find a tennis court, jacuzzi, and heated pool along with a security system to keep all those pesky fans away. Buy it today on Luxury Estate for the low price of $7.8 million—little red corvette not included.

  • Wyoming Bachelor Pad With Indoor Stream [9 Photos]

    This Wyoming bachelor pad has everything you could possibly want—a huge great room, a billiards room, and even an indoor stream! That’s right, the foyer features a glass covered indoor stream right under your feet. And the same groundwater pumped in for the stream is also found in conduits located under the home for the geothermal cooling system. The 4400 square foot home also features 3 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, along with studio and office space. The home was constructed using reclaimed wood, giving it a rustic, weathered appearance despite being built just 10 years ago. It’s a great house, just be sure to keep your more girthsome friends out of the foyer. I don’t know how strong that glass is.

  • Australian Bachelor Pad Hovers Over The Beach [18 Photos]

    Originally built in 1978, Australia’s iconic “Pole House” on the Great Ocean Road was really showing its age when the current owners purchased the property in 2005. After 13 months of renovation by Melbourne’s F2 Architecture, the house has reopened, with no signs of the Berber carpeted walls or light fixtures made from green wine bottles. From the outside, the house looks very much the same, but inside it is sleek and modern. The only hint of its age is the 1960s-era floating fireplace, which would have been foolish to remove. The entire house is basically one big, open room looking out onto the ocean. The supporting pole and bathroom are concealed in a burnt ash timber wall. And the best part? The house is available for vacation rentals through Great Ocean Road Holidays. You’ll be sure to get plenty of Sheilas, mate.

  • Incredible African Wilderness Bachelor Pad [18 Photos]

    The Lower Zambezi in Zambia is well known in Africa as one of the best spots for viewing wild elephant herds and predators and also for the fantastic Zambezi River. It also happens to be where the Chongwe River House is located. The incredible house, looking almost like an upscale Flintstones abode, is a perfect resting spot when you’re on safari. 8 can sleep in the 4 ensuite bedrooms and the house is fully staffed with a guide, house manager, and private chefs. And while you’re relaxing in the pool, there’s a good chance you’ll catch some elephants taking a drink from the adjacent Zambezi River. For more info on renting the house, check out Chongwe River House.

  • Ecuadorian Bachelor Pad Made From Steel [22 Photos]

    Architects José María Sáez and Daniel Moreno Flores constructed the Algarrobos House in 2011 in Ecuador using steel. 8 identical 18 meter long steel beams placed along the x y z axis frame the house. Identical wood pieces fill in the area and the repetition dilutes the structure so as not to take away from its surroundings. Giant glass panes, many of them movable, complete the structure and offer fantastic panoramas. Reflecting pools on the metal roof truly reflect by mirroring the surrounding landscape. The abstract form is at once a jarring sight in the setting while somehow managing to blend in.

  • Own Al Capone’s Florida Villa For $8.44 Million [23 Photos]

    Al Capone’s Miami Villa, where he died from complications from syphilis in 1947, is back on the market. The 1922 Villa was purchased last year for $7 million but apparently houses where STD-infested gangsters spent their final days in dementia are hot right now and the house is now listed at $8.44 million. Although much of the property has changed in the 67 years since Capone’s passing, some original elements, like the black and gold Art Deco powder room, remain. And if security is a concern, Capone’s got you covered. High walls and heavy iron doors are sure to stop the G-Men from showing up unannounced. There is also a large swimming pool with marble all around and a 2 bedroom cabana, perfect for hosting parties where maybe, if you’re lucky, you can contract your very own venereal disease. How can you pass this up? Contact Sotheby’s and put in your bid right now!

  • Mysterious Secluded Bachelor Pad In Joshua Tree National Park [22 Photos]

    The inexplicably named Black Desert House, a black house in the desert area of California’s Joshua Tree National Park (oh, I guess it’s explicable after all), is a joint venture between Marc Atlan Design and Oller & Pejic Architects. Set on a 2.5 acre lot, the 1570 square-foot home features 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Set back on a private road with no neighbors in view, you’re guaranteed plenty of privacy when out in the 30 foot long and 8 foot deep pool. Unfortunately, the Black Desert House is not for sale, but it is available exclusively for professional location rentals. So if you want to rent the space, theoretically you could take your special lady on a trip there as long as you turn the vacation into a photo or video shoot. Just convince her of the artistic value involved.

  • Lower East Side Penthouse Bachelor Pad [12 Photos]

    New York City’s Lower East Side, formerly one of the most eclectic neighborhoods with bums warming themselves on garbage can fires, a thriving art and music scene, and a cornucopia of drugs, has since followed the rest of the city in becoming uninterestingly safe and sterile. And expensive. This incredible 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath penthouse on Avenue B was originally listed last year for $6 million. Apparently there wasn’t enough interest, so it’s now on the rental market for $19,500, perfect for someone who has lots of money but little commitment. The main level is surrounded by 2618 square feet of personal terrace space with a built-in hot tub, perfect for those late nights where you ponder what the poor people are doing. The penthouse also features 19 foot ceilings, a fully loaded kitchen with two convection ovens, and a 63″ TV home theater system. And with all the money you’ll be spending on rent, it’s nice to know that you can save a few bucks by drinking $3 beer at neighborhood staples like Manitoba’s and Doc Holliday’s.

  • Manhattan Micro Loft Bachelor Pad [10 Photos]

    Located at the top of a Manhattan brownstone, this loft offered the architects at Specht Harpman only 425 square feet to work with BUT with 25 feet of vertical space, they made this amazing micro loft. Through brilliant use of levels, every inch of the space is put to use. The fisrt level is the entry and kitchen, leading to the living space a few steps up. Then stairs lead to a bed pavilion projected over the living area that also has stairs up to a roof garden. The staircases contain storage area and even a bathroom. With very little furniture necessary, what was once a cramped space now seems perfectly comfortable.

The home was previously offered for $29 million, a steal when you consider Wayne Newton’s $48 million pad.

Now you can own this piece of cinematic history for only $48 million! That’s not bad considering it was originally listed for $70 million a couple months ago.

You get a main mansion, 7 additional guest houses, an airport, an F28 jet, stables, a zoo, a tennis court, an equestrian pool, numerous ponds and enough tackiness to make you puke. That peacock near the elevator better be included, too. That’s a real deal breaker if not.

  • Any Good Bachelor Has A Pad In The Hollywood Hills [17 Photos]

    $36 million is the amount Americans donated towards Congressional elections last month. It is the amount that Frontier Airlines just sold for. It is the amount “Battle: Los Angeles” made opening weekend. It’s also just happens to be how much it will cost you for this 6 bedroom, 10 bathroom house in Beverly Hills. It seems like a lot of money until you realize that the house comes with that awesome James Bond Blu-ray pictured onscreen in the theater. Oh, and there’s a Zen rock garden, too.

  • A Look Inside Mark Wahlberg’s Beverly Hills Bachelor Pad (16 Photos)

    Mark Wahlberg recently sold his Beverly Hills Mansion for $12.995 million. What does almost $13 million buy you these days? Apparently an 11,500 square foot estate on 1.7 acres. The house has 5 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, a chef’s kitchen, and a theater complete with a 35mm digital projector. There’s also a 2500 square foot gym with a boxing ring, a pool with a grotto and a waterfall, a putting green, and even a full basketball court with stadium lighting, something Larry Bird forgot in his Florida mansion. I hope Mr. Wahlberg was kind enough to leave the new owner a copy of The Awakening so they can watch him talk to trees whenever they want (often, no doubt) in their personal movie theater.
