Beastie Boys’ Mike D Designed a Multi-Million Dollar Brooklyn Home
We haven’t asked Mike D for proof, but we are willing to guess he is licensed to build.
As the surviving Beastie Boys continue with their post-Beastie careers (which includes Ad-Rock starring in the upcoming Noah Baumbach flick), there will undoubtably be a number of surprises as we realize how talented these guys really are. For Mike D, that has included designing and building a freaking house.
Mike Diamond, Consequence of Sound points out, recently partnered with architects John and Jill Bouratoglou to design the Brooklyn townhouse where he resides with wife Tamra Davis and their two children. And since that structure has not collapsed on its occupants, it makes sense that Diamond join forces with the same architect team to try it again.
The new single family home can be yours for a reasonable price of $4.98 million. If that seems like a lot, consider that it is in Brooklyn, where the rent continues to climb. We’re willing to bet they’ll knock that down some for a one-time cash payment.
