A Envy-Inducing Look Inside Minecraft Creator’s Stunning Beverly Hills Home

Take a deep breath and get ready to regret every moment you spent not inventing video games. You may not know the name Markus Persson (or even his online alterego @notch) but chances are someone you know plays his game Minecraft. The game, as well as the company that birthed it, Mojang, was recently sold to Microsoft for a whopping $2.5 billion. Persson's net worth is estimated to be around $1.5 billion. Of course, that means that it was no skin off his nose to spend $70 million on a new home, buying what is thought to be the most expensive house in Beverly Hills (which, as you might imagine, is no easy feat). The hilltop house was said to have generated interest from many high profile buyers, including (allegedly) the King and Queen themselves - that is, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Take a look inside this estate, which was sold with all the furniture and decor as part of the purchase price, and see if you think Persson got his money's worth.

Here’s a video tour of the house:
