Guess what folks? The people at Motovo, who like to explore the funnier, satirical side of real-estate, have just put Tony Stark’s mansion up for sale in honor of Iron Man 3 hitting the theaters. And as usual, the listing is a combination a tongue-in-cheek humor and just enough realism to make it to funny. Here’s the detailed listing as it appears in the ad:
This luxurious, modern-designed estate offers a breathtaking view of Dume Cove. The previous home of billionaire Tony Stark, and his not-so-secret identity, Iron Man, this expansive home includes 25,000 square feet of living space that is perfect for hosting lavish gatherings. As one would expect from a technology magnate, the Iron Man House is wired with state-of-the-art gadgets to make modern living as painless as possible. For the gearhead in the family, there is an expansive garage and workshop. Also included are marking from Iron Man’s tumultuous career.
The house is located in Malibu and is listed at a hefty $117,250,000, which breaks down to about $4,690 per square foot. But if you don’t have a 100 million dollars kicking around, Motovo offers a (ahem) reasonable loan payment of $423,225 a month. The house also comes with 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and boasts such amenities as a fully-functional AI, a bar, a multi-car garage, and a workshop with some of the coolest crap you’ve ever seen (including a particle accelerator!)

Well, it’s the Fourth of May again, and you know what that means… it’s time to commemorate Star Wars! And what better way to do that than to point out some Star Wars related promotions and cool stuff! And as luck would have it, my buds over at Movoto Blog have forwarded me a rather interesting real-estate proposal. It seems that after decades of living on the swampy world of Dagobah, Yoda is looking to move his hutt!
As you can see from the infographic below, it’s listed as a fixer-upper, priced to move, and even comes with an endorsement from Luke Skywalker and R2D2… sort of. The overall price is listed at a bargain-hunting $7,762, and even provides square footage (90.25, or about the size of a spacious cardboard box) and helpful directions on how to find the place. Who knew it would be in a swamp outside Morgan City, Louisiana, specifically in the Atchafalaya Basin which sits to the west of New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
Ah yes, and apparently, Yoda’s hutt is a highly improvised structure, composed of mud and salvaged components from escape pods. And it seems that the Jedi Master relies on the Force to hold it all together. So anyone planning on moving in had better have a sufficient command of the Force (or a high enough midichlorian count) to see to the structural integrity of the thing!
Much like their real-estate assessments of Hogwarts, the TARDIS from Doctor Who, and how to zombie and ninja-proof your house, this bit of comedic fangasmery is the work of Motovo’s clever staff – nerds who moonlight as prospectors and real estate agents.
