A property in East Hampton has just sold for $147 million thus becoming the most expensive home ever sold in the United States.
The sale of the luxurious home comes less than three weeks after a record was set when an estate in Connecticut sold for $120 million. The man behind the East Hampton purchase is Hedge fund manager Barry Rosentein who reportedly earned $120 million in 2012 alone.
This home was originally owned by Christopher H. Brown and Andrew Gordon from the Tweedy, Brown investment firm. Much of Brown’s time was spent on the gardens and as a result, it is now an 18-acre oasis with a massive lake and a prominent arch bridge.
Very few details are available about the house itself and no images of the house are available. However, we understand that it was designed by fellow owner Gordon and is modernist in design. Brown passed away in 2009 while Gordon died last year which is why the property was put up for sale.
Other high priced properties to have sold in the United States in the past include the Mountain Home Road house purchased by Softbank CEO Masayoshi Son for $117.5 million as well as a home in Los Angeles County which sold for a record there of $102 million back in March.
