Jamie Zdru, Director of William Raveis Real Estate’s Exceptional Properties Division, recently announced the firm’s listing of world-renowned rapper and actor, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s, 50,000+ square foot mansion in Farmington, CT.
“Mr. Jackson’s home is truly an escape from the ordinary,” says Zdru. “The property provides an indulgence for the senses with a combination of 52 visually stunning rooms on 17 private acres. The home is a perfect getaway from the realities of a demanding career, while also providing the benefits of being only 10 minutes from one of CT’s bustling urban centers, West Hartford. And for the impatient jetsetter’s longer trips, skip lines at the airport by boarding air transportation from a personal helicopter pad! There’s not much more you can ask for!”
The home features rooms and amenities to satisfy almost any mood. A gated entry leads into a grand foyer, complete with cream-colored marble floors and columns. Not a single detail is missed in the large, elegant dining room, inviting living room, kitchen and home office. In addition, the property provides ample space for entertaining and v.i.p. nightlife, with a home theater, billiards room and fully equipped nightclub featuring a lighted dance floor, bar and DJ area. Tucked away in a corner (albeit one of the largest corners you’ll probably ever see) is a dimly lit, lavish room for after-hours entertainment, the likes of which would make any owner of an exotic club jealous.
And if all this is not enough, the home is also a sports enthusiast’s paradise, complete with a racquet ball court, indoor pool, large gym, fitness facilities and an outdoor basketball court. After a day of sports recreation, house friends and family in three separate living quarters, all with full kitchens, bedrooms, living and dining rooms.
Mr. Jackson’s home is being marketed as a Prestigious Home through William Raveis’ Exceptional Properties Division. The Prestigious Homes program focuses on marketing rare homes to the ultra-affluent, using a creative mix of traditional and non-traditional advertising methods. Mr. Jackson’s home is listed by Heidi Picard Ramsay from the William Raveis Avon office and Lisa Hall of William Raveis Westport. For more information, please call 860-307-0039.
