For many of us, owning our own home is the goal. We may dream of owning a vacation home in an exotic locale, but we know deep down that it’s probably not going to happen.
And for most of us, simplifying our lives may entail cutting the cord on our cable or satellite TV, scaling back on our discretionary spending, or maybe even doing some spring cleaning. There’s no better feeling than donating a load of stuff you don’t need to a worthy charity, right?
But for Robert F.X. Sillerman, the founder of SFX Entertainment (SFXE), simplifying his life means selling six of his homes for $107 million.
Talk about your spring cleaning.
According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Sillerman and his wife Laura have listed six of their homes in Manhattan, the Hamptons and on the Caribbean island of Anguilla for sale in an effort to “simplify” their lives.
Among the listings is a $39 million oceanfront home in Southampton, New York, which features eight bedrooms and 11.5 bathrooms. According to the listing, which is being conducted by Corcoran Group Real Estate, the home is approximately 12,800 square feet and is on 3.66 acres.
The home also offers 200 feet of “protected white sand frontage and low dunescape,” a oceanside pool, indoor heated pool, terraces, and decks that offer easy access to one of the most secluded locations along Meadow Lane away from public access.

The Sillermans also listed a Manhattan townhouse for $28 million. Sillerman had previously listed the home for $36 million in October 2013. The home was previously owned by Conde Nast publisher S.I. Newhouse and once featured a two-story atrium with bulletproof glass.
The Sillermans are also looking to sell four properties in Anguilla, including a 37,000-square-foot palatial estate for $19.5 million.
The smaller three properties are called “villas” in the WSJ report, one of which looks like this:

If purchased together, the listings "afford somebody the opportunity to buy a global lifestyle in one fell swoop," Caroline Holl of Corcoran, who is listing Mr. Sillerman's 70th Street townhouse along with Leighton Candler, told the WSJ.
According to the WSJ report, the Sillermans plan to maintain properties in each of the three locations after the sales. Wouldn’t we all love to be able simplify like that?
