Rapper 50 Cent has been trying to sell his 52-room mansion in Connecticut for 12 years. Now he finally has – at an 84 per cent price cut, The Wall Street Journal reported. Why isn't anyone buying this US$250 million Los Angeles mansion? Here’s a look inside the mansion. It was reportedly bought by a Florida businessman named Casey Askar, who owns several national quick-service restaurants including Papa Romano’s, Papa's Pizza To-Go, Blackjack Pizza, Mr. Pita, Stucchi's Ice Cream and CJ's Brewing Company. The property is located in Farmington, a town in central Connecticut about 40 miles from New Haven. The entrance to the property is marked with a stately-looking gate and a lion statue. The home is set back in the trees at the end of a long driveway. 50 Cent's house was originally listed at US$18.5 million in 2007, making the sale price of US$2.9 million an 84 per cent discount. The 21-bedroom mansion opens into a shining foyer with duelling wood-panelled staircases. Would you pay US$135 million for the mansion featured in ‘The Godfather’?

The transaction set a record for the most expensive home sale in Farmington. The roughly 50,000-square-foot mansion has seen several price cuts over the past 12 years. It was most recently listed at US$4.995 million. The interiors are as lavish as you might expect. Jonathan Miller, a national real-estate appraiser, told Realtor.com that 50 Cent’s house took so long to sell because “it’s just oversized for the market,” adding, “When you have a property that is well outside the norm, it takes a lot longer to sell.” 50 Cent was reportedly spending US$70,000 a month in utility bills, maintenance, and other expenses for the sprawling estate. 10 abandoned global mansions that were once the height of luxury One of the spacious bedrooms overlooks the tree-lined yard.
