Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have reportedly purchased a mansion worth an eye-watering $40million on Star Island in Miami. 

The singer, 51, and the basketball player, 45, could soon be neighbours with the world’s social elite; including celebrities, business tycoons and billionaires, after snapping up a property in the ultra-exclusive postcode.

The couple splashed out on the multi-million pound home, which spans across 86 acres and has 10 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.

Chic and stylish modern beach home on Bruny Island

michael jhon

A WONDERFUL island lifestyle, cutting-edge design and an absolute beachfront position – what else could a homeowner ask for?

With the rare benefit of title to the high-water mark, this outstanding contemporary building makes a unique and appealing addition to the suite of holiday homes that enjoy an exclusive location above the sandy stretch of Nebraska Beach.

Clad in oiled vertical hardwood and designed as an offset pair of connected pavilions, the building’s rear door opens to an entrance hallway that links the two, with a large picture window at the end hinting at the expansive panoramas to come.

Turning to the right from the hallway is the bedroom pavilion, with three bedrooms and a bright bathroom/toilet with glass-enclosed rainhead shower.

The master bedroom, with its window framing the view, is at the front of this pavilion.

Full-height glass sliders give access from the master bedroom to the

Designers’ Hayden Island manufactured home, for sale at $125,000, has ‘$1 million view’

michael jhon

Before they were married, Hingyi and Julia Khong thought about settling down in a tiny house. Instead, the two, both designers and makers, expanded their dream and bought an old manufactured home desperately in need of do-it-yourself improvements.

By the time the Khongs held their wedding ceremony at their home on Hayden Island, they had replaced the vinyl flooring and shag carpet with white-washed oak they finished themselves.

They laid tile in the kitchen and master bathroom, and removed an ill-fitting add-on that blocked the sight of ospreys, blue herons and bald eagles flying by.

The couple said “I do” inside a glass-enclosed porch with a movable wall that reveals an unobstructed view of the Columbia River and downtown Vancouver, Washington.

“We wanted the house to feel like you’re floating on a cloud,” says Julia Khong.

Six years and career changes later, they have now listed their “magnificent” mobile home,

How This N.Y. Island Went From Tourist Hot Spot to Emergency Garden

michael jhon

This was supposed to be the busiest summer yet for Governors Island. After 15 years of careful redevelopment, a semi-abandoned isle off the southern tip of Manhattan had blossomed into a lush day-trip destination.

There were plans for a new tram, ferries designed to shuttle in a thousand people at a time, and field trips for hundreds of city children to scramble around a one-acre teaching garden on the island’s southeastern shore, one of its last unrenovated parcels. Then the city shut down.

“Now it’s crazy quiet,” said Shawn Connell, who manages the seven-year-old garden on behalf of the environmental organization GrowNYC. “You can hear the water and the boats.”

It was just before noon one recent weekday, and his three seasonal staffers were packing pints of berries, tying beets into bunches and cooling down several hundred pounds of just-picked greens in the shade of a gazebo. All it of
