Hamptons estate goes on sale for £136 million; it has a ¼ mile of frontage to the Atlantic Ocean and is owned by financier Brenda Earl
A 20,000 square foot white brick house that forms the centerpiece of what is being termed “the most expensive Hamptons” listing has gone on sale for £136 million or 872% more than it sold for in 2002.
Built in 1960 and owned by Henry Ford II of the eponymous car making dynasty and then by his ex-wife, Anne McDonnell, until 1975, Fordune at 90 Jule Pond Drive in Southampton originally extended to some 235 acres. After passing into the hands of an Italian businessman named Carlo Traglio, it was sub-divided and then sold to Brenda Earl De Paola – a former partner in the long/short investment firm Zweig-Dimenna and the founder of the private investment house Earl Enterprises, LLC – in 2002.
Featuring amongst other things 48-foot living room, 4 further reception rooms, a library, a chef’s kitchen, 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, the renovated property also includes a 3 bedroom carriage house, a 6-car garage and a greenhouse. As well as nearly quarter of a mile of frontage to the Atlantic Ocean, the 42.129 acre estate has frontage onto three ponds, a basketball court, a tennis court and a 60-foot gunite outdoor swimming pool.
Bespoke Real Estate has the listing.
