Taking a look inside a celebrity home can give you a fascinating glimpse into the lifestyle of the rich and famous. In the case of Internet multi-millionaire Kim Dotcom, a closer look at his mansion in Coatesville reveals the posh yet rather stark ambiance of his palatial estate. This mansion was shared by Dotcom, his wife and his three young children at the time of his arrest. Over the years, Dotcom has achieved notoriety due to charges of embezzlement, fraud, hacking and even unsafe driving. This dream home, dubbed ‘Chrisco’, is the same mansion near Auckland, New Zealand, that was raided by a team of 76 law enforcement officials and two helicopters in January 2012.

A Sprawling Estate
When you take a look inside this celebrity dream home, you will see that Kim Dotcom took his security seriously. He had a security team that lived on-site at his private residence, and he also had several different security doors, hidden rooms and panic buttons installed in different locations throughout the home. This is interesting given the fact that the estate itself sits in a wide open area with practically no concealment. This is a large white estate home that has the facade of a modern English-style manor. Visitors will drive along a long, narrow road across wide open, rolling hills to reach the estate. There are very few trees or gates surrounding the area close to home, and this gives the overall look that it is fairly unguarded.

Unique Rooms in the Estate
Inside owner name house, you will find several interesting rooms. Husband and wife have separate living quarters across the hall from each other. Kim Dotcom’s room has several panic buttons, a hidden compartment concealed by a glass wall where he sleeps at night and a large, private bathroom with a huge tub placed in the center of the room. There is also a dining room with alternating black and white chairs, a living area with metallic tables that spell out “Mega” for the Internet company Dotcom started and a huge spiral staircase. The kids’ rooms are located in the nannies’ quarters in a separate structure away from the home. Inside this smaller structure, sleeping quarters for five nannies and the kids as well as a play area for the kids is present.

Kim Dotcom has focused his life on technology, so it is not surprising to discover that this celebrity home has a modern, contemporary vibe. Given his notoriety, the major surprise about his home is the open floor plan and the lack of obvious security features around the home. However, inside the home, it is clear that he does indeed take security seriously.
