Life just gets more unbearable and squalid for 80-year-old multi-gazillionnaire Rupert Murdoch and his 42-year-old wife Wendi Deng.
Murdoch put the mansion, named ‘Rosehearty,’ up for sale on the open market in June 2007. Back then, it carried a price of $14.8 million. Four years later, that figure has collapsed.
So, what does $9.1 million get you nowadays? Well, Rosehearty is a stately 1900s Colonial mansion with 11 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, a 950-square foot guest house, and a 50-foot swimming pool with pool house.
Measuring around 10,000 square feet, the mansion also comes with a 950-square foot guesthouse, a garage that’s big enough for eight cars, a beach cabana, and a floodlit tennis court.
The Real Estalker notes that the sale should still be considered a rumor for now, as it’s yet to appear on property records, but someone may have got themselves a bargain from poor old Rupert.
Hopefully Mr. Murdoch can be consoled while he reflects on his loss in his $44 million Fifth Avenue triplex. Or his 8,651-square foot Wallace Neff-designed mansion in Beverly Hills (11 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms). I hear either suffices.
