Housing for Super Rich Russians

The super rich Russians will be having an extra option of where to stay. An upcoming estate will house only 150 to 200 mansions (note that it's not a house or bungalow but a mansion). Each of these mansions will cost about £10m to £15m.

The developer, a Russian billionaire himself, Aras Agalarov will construct these mansions within an area of 340-hectare (850 acres) at Istra region just outside Moscow.

This estate haven will have the following built within the area:-
* roads with fir trees and white camomile flowers;
* 18-hole golf course;
* an exclusive private school;
* 14 artificial lakes and waterfall
* a spa and beach resort with imported white sand;
* minimum 2,000 square metres around your mansion;
* a salt-water swimming pool; and
* guaranteed right kind of neighbours.

Somehow, everything have its own pros and cons and the cons are:-
* potential buyers must have a personal interview with Agalaro;
* to sign a 30-page document agreeing to abide by Agalarov's own, at times eccentric, rules;
* forbidden from hanging out washing;
* forbidden from home improvement;
* forbidden from letting off fireworks; and
* all bodyguards will be banished to small houses on the edge of the community.

Most Russian billonaires could be having as many as five or six bodyguards. Imagine two hundred families moved in with that many boduguards, the whole estate could be occupied by 1,000 bodyguards. Could set up an army infantry within this estate haven.

Ick! Hanging around millionaires is bad enough... but living with them?

There are a few good millionaires - but in general they fall into the same class as "politician" for me.

hahaha...some are quite snobbish actually as i did bump into some.

most multi-millionaires and billionaires (in m'sian currency) are usually well connected one way or another.u cld say that they were smart in knowing how to and whom to connect.
