If you have $140 million to throw around and are looking for a home south of the border, you may want to check out “Briar Patch.”
The 1930s-built estate in East Hampton estate is the most expensive home for sale in the US right now, according to Zillow Group, the largest real-estate network on the web.
The 10,000-square-foot-home sits on a sprawling, well-manicured property along Georgia Pond and is complete with views of the Atlantic Ocean. The listing suggested that the massive open lot would make prime real-estate for a private art gallery, conservatory, spa/gym, or guesthouse (or, all of the above).
Other talking points included hand-stencilled tray ceilings, expansive but charming porches, a 3,500-square-foot guesthouse (which we would take any day), a tennis court, cabana-filled swimming pool, and a total of 10 bedrooms.
The property – which now holds a place on the National Register of Historic Places – was built in 1931 and renovated in 1990 by renowned architect Peter Marino.
The current owners are Chris Whittle – who was once the publisher of Esquire Magazine and is the co-founder of Avenues: The World School private school in Manhattan – and his wife Priscilla Rattazzi.
