VICE founder Shane Smith reportedly plopped down $23 million on this Spanish Colonial mansion in Santa Monica, Calif. last summer. Now, we get a look inside of the massive estate, which sits on one of the largest lots in the city.

Smith purchased the home from hotel tycoon André Balazs in 2015. It boasts a 72-foot-long swimming pool, 14,000 square feet of living space, as well as mosaic flooring and even a secret room you have to access via a bookshelf door.
