Rapper 50 Cent Cuts Cost of Connecticut Mansion Again
50 Cent has dropped the asking price for his mansion located at 50 Poplar Hill Drive in Farmington, CT once again.
There is no denying the beauty of this home. The views are spectacular, and the background is legendary.
50 Poplar Hill Drive in Farmington was built by Colonial Realty scammer, Benjamin Sisti. The history is both sordid and sad, as detailed in the article in boston.com. The fall of Colonial Realty empire unfolded in this story back in 1992 in the New York Times, and sadly, as reported by courant.com in February of 1992, one of the principals of the company, Frank M. Shuch, committed suicide.
From owners Benjamin Sisti, to Mike Tyson and now to Curtis Johnson (50 Cent) the house has gone through a lot of changes, and has a pretty crazy back story. Maybe it's in the fates that 50 Poplar Hill Drive is a hard sell.
The asking price of the mansion has dropped again, this time pretty significantly. You can snatch the place up for just under $6 million. For most of us, it's still a hefty price tag. But when you consider 50 Cent first listed it in 2007 for $18 million, this is quite the deal. In a blog I wrote back in March, it looked as if the place was going to be sold for $8 million, but that never happened.
I wonder if I could do the rent to own thing? Or maybe Curtis should consider breaking those 21 bedrooms up into apartments? Hey, there's 25 bathrooms, so you'd never have to worry about where to do your business!
