Beware the Ides of March! If you’re name’s not Caesar, I’m pretty sure you’re ok, but today is one of the most famous dates in history as it’s the day Julius Caesar was assassinated. The story goes a seer warned Caesar about the ides of March being a day when harm would come to him. When March 15th came, Caesar saw the seer again and said “the ides of March have come” to which the seer replied “Aye, Caesar. But not gone.” And so Caesar met his demise.

1. Home to Caesar Stone in Los Angeles, CA – $18,500,000

A home fit for Caesar this certainly is. Nearly 10,000 sq. ft of space, 7 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms make this quite a palace in LA. A great pool outside and of course a kitchen with Caesar stone counters, make this the place to entertain guests. Just be careful of anyone named Brutus.

2. Theatre of Pompey in Pompey, NY – $363,000

Caesar was actually killed in a place called the Theatre of Pompey where he was attending a meeting of the Senate. However, those looking for a nice meeting place in modern day Pomepy, NY need not fear their gathering at this great home on top of a hill. Spectacular views in all directions and a 4 bay garage are just of few of its endearing features. Currently listed by Dave Pridgen with Coldwell Banker Prime Properties Inc.
