It seems that Beyonce and Jay-Z weren't crazy enough in love with a Beverly Hills mansion; they were just outbid for it by the creator of "Minecraft."

The furnished mansion at 1181 North Hillcrest Road in the celebrity-heavy city was on the market for $85 million earlier this year, Business Insider reported.

TMZ reported that the "Single Ladies" chanteuse and her rapper/producer husband were interested in the property, but lost out to Swedish "Minecraft" creator Markus Persson, who bought it for $70 million.

For that price, Persson is now the proud owner of a 23,000-square-foot home which has had former and current neighbours including Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Aniston and Ringo Starr, according to Forbes.

A virtual tour of the home shows two women arriving in a Bentley and entering through a massive, rotating black block which serves as the front door.

You're then exposed to the living room, which looks out on to an infinity pool with a panoramic vista of Los Angeles.

The home comes with Bentley furniture, Hermès chairs, a poster of James Dean on the living room wall, as well as a replica of his motorcycle.

It also has a car lift, which moves vehicles into a storage area, Forbes added.

The deep-pocketed Persson made a cool $2.5 billion after selling his company Mojang, the maker of the "Minecraft" video game, to Microsoft, said TMZ.
