Minecraft Creator Outbids Jay-Z and Beyonce on $70 Million Beverly Hills Mansion

Jay-Z and Beyonce just lost out on a $70 million mansion in Beverly Hills to Markus Persson, aka “Notch,” the Swedish creator of the video game Minecraft.

The opulent home, complete with a car showroom, move theater, candy room, and 16-car garage, is the most expensive ever purchased in Beverly Hills, according to Complex. The home also comes with cases of Dom Perignon and Yves Saint Laurent fire extinguishers – for fighting fire in style, of course.

Though the price seems high, it probably barely made a dent in Persson’s wallet; in September, he sold his video game company to Microsoft for $2.5 billion.

According to TMZ, Jay-Z and Beyonce visited the home no less than six times in the past few months. The supermansion was reportedly originally listed for $85 million, so it seems Persson really got a steal here.

Other amenities included in the home are two dozen Roberto Cavalli place settings, valued at $3,700 each, and  a replica of James Dean’s motorcycle, reports MTV. Included in the mansion’s 15 bathrooms (and eight bedrooms) are $5,600 toilets.
