Sean Combs Estate
You might expect the home of an iconic rapper and business mogul to be flashy, but that’s not the case with Sean Combs estate. A brick drive leads up to the estate with a perfectly landscaped lawn. The multistory brick home has an arched entryway leading to the front door.
Once inside, the winding staircase and marble floor take center stage. High ceilings, white walls, an open floor plan, and crown moldings give the home an elegant airy feel. The living room has high arched windows, pale walls, and a rich hardwood floor. A fireplace with a white mantle adds warmth to the room.
In contrast, the home office has wood floors, walls, and ceilings. An exterior wall full of windows and a marble inlaid fireplace add points of interest. A white desk in the center of the room gives the perfect contrast.
The basement has its own kitchen, an aquarium, a home theater, and a bedroom with its own bath. It’s the perfect place for casual entertaining. The home also has an indoor basketball and racquetball court and a full gym.
The grounds include a putting green and a lighted tennis court. In the backyard, there’s a large pool surrounded by a flagstone walking area. A waterfall runs down into the pool, and there’s a separate spa pool.
