WATCH: Notch’s new $70m mansion recreated in Minecraft


Last week we heard the news that Markus “Notch” Persson, the brain behind Minecraft had spent some of his $2bn fortune on a gigantic house in trendy Beverly Hills. Hours later the inevitable happened – and some fans recreated it in Minecraft itself.

The mansion itself has 8 bedrooms, a pool (with a 54ft glass door that opens on to it), a movie theatre, car showroom and a “candy room”, whatever that is.
