Well not so much being "built" as it is being "renovated." I do admire this guy's dedication, though, he's been collecting individual condo units for the past 10-11 years so that he can take two entire buildings and join them into one big mega-house. Impressive feat.

Nemirovsky began acquiring his properties in 1997, according to public records of deeds, buying one of the 25 Exeter condos for $2 million, and another for $554,000. By January 2007, he owned both buildings, spending about $13.55 million in total, according to public records. The renovation cost is listed on the permit at $9.75 million.

So I know what you're wondering, "What does $23MM get you these days in Boston?" The answer is: 15 bathrooms, six parking spaces, and 24,000 square feet of living space.

The house's luxuriant features include an atrium bordered by a glass walkway and railings, according to building plans filed with the city. Each of three children's bedrooms has its own bathroom and dressing room. The master suite has "his" and "hers" studies, dressing rooms, and bathrooms.

There's more: an elevator, a sitting room, living room, parlor, media room, family room, exercise room, upper lounge, an "eat-in study," a 27-foot, oval-shaped library, and an office for the house manager.

I'm at a loss for words. Part of me is wondering if this guy got the memo on the recession. Another other part is thinking he worked hard for his money, so he should be able to do what he wants with it. And the last part of me is thinking I should mind my own business - but I can't help it since the Globe put it in print.

    So *that's* what I should do with this spare $23 million I've got burning a hole in my pocket!

  2. Roxanne Said,

    My guess would be if he has that kind of money he's pretty insulated from a recession.

  3. Dan Dan Said,

    My guess is also that he doesn't care whether you mind your business or not. He's probably got "screw you" money, meaning he can just say "screw you, I don't really care what you think".
