An $18,000,000 house... is a teardown!!!

"Greenwich, CT is in an uproar over a mysterious Russian billionaire's proposal to buy an $18 million home, tear it down, and build what would be the biggest home ever built in the tony Connecticut enclave - a 27,000 square foot... Just last month he finished purchasing a huge beachfront lot in Israel, combining 5 neighboring properties, for about $17 million... He'll be tearing down existing homes there, too. The expansive plans for the new Connecticut home include 26 bathrooms, a billiards room, game room, Turkish bath, Finnish bath, a wine cellar and a dog grooming room."

I'm sure its his "right" to use his money as he wishes, but it's still an obscene display of wealth.
