A former crime site
Looking for a home with a notorious past? Then check out this Palm Island estate that was once owned by Prohibition-era gangster Al Capone. Listed for $14.9 million, 93 Palm in Miami Beach has a spacious Colonial style and features tropical gardens, a private beach and a 60,000-gallon swimming pool. If a private getaway is what you desire, it would be criminal to pass up this tropical estate.
An abode for the apocalypse
Searching for shelter for the impending doomsday? Look no further than this isolated Alaskan cabin. Seventy-five miles away from the nearest town of Skwentna (which itself has a population of only 37), this secluded residence listed at $159,000 has everything the prepared lone survivor needs when the end of the world finally comes, from solar-powered electricity with three back-up generators, an 80-foot-deep well for clean water, a garage full of helpful machines and tools, and a lake for year-round pike fishing, all located between two hunting zones.
