Buy a McMansion Designed by Vanilla Ice


Vanilla Ice may soon be more popular for his design skills than for his rhymes. HGTV’s Vanilla Ice Project, the rapper’s house-flipping home renovation show, is gearing up for its seventh season. And you could be on the receiving end of his architectural expertise, as a project he and his team designed and built is up for sale.

The 4000-square-foot McMansion borders a canal in Lighthouse Point, Florida, an oceanside community just outside Boca Raton. It’s got four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and an 8-foot-deep pool. Not to mention the canal waterfront just at the edge of the backyard. Inside, everything is white, shiny, and very slippery-looking. (It's—dare I say—downright icy.)

This may come as a disappointment for true fans of Rob Van Winkle (the rapper's legal name), but it's not the home he was renovating when he was caught burglarizing the next door neighbors in 2015.

But the home does have other perks. For nearly $2.4 million, according to the listing, the sellers will even throw in a boat “so you can move right in and experience the lifestyle of being on the waterfront and being a boater." What's an "as seen on TV" purchase without a little freebie thrown in?
