The exteriors of the elegant mansion, once owned by Eric Ridder, a publisher and 1952 Olympic gold medalist in yachting, were used for the filming of “The Money Pit,” Steven Spielberg’s 1986 comedy, directed by Richard Benjamin and starring Tom Hanks and Shelley Long, about the ultimate fixer upper. Now totally redone, the stylish and sophisticated 14,000 square foot mansion is outfitted inside and out with the best of the best, decorated and detailed with Versace-esque flair.
