A gorgeous 9,700 square foot home set on 3.67 acres of some of the highest land in Newport, Rhode Island has sold for a record breaking $9 million. Daytime television judge, Judy Sheindlin and husband Jerry, snagged the gorgeous estate at the discounted price. The home had been on the market since 2017 for $12.5 million. The gorgeous estate was built in 2012 by the late Dorrance Hill Hamilton, American heiress of the Campbell Soup fortune, and aptly named The Bird House for Hamilton’s love of birds and the elevated location. According to Realtor.com, the transaction marks the most expensive sale recorded in Rhode Island this year. A soaring two story entrance hall and living room with floor to ceiling stone fireplace welcome with elegant wood paneling in extraordinary detail, inspired by the architecture of several historic properties. There are 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half bathrooms throughout. Many rooms enjoy panoramic coastline views, while others look upon dramatic rock outcroppings and lovely gardens. No expense was spared to create a beautiful sanctuary using all that current building standards can provide, including Tischler custom windows and doors, a 3 stop elevator, radiant heated floors, 3 phase 400 AMP electrical service and whole house generator. The grounds are breathtaking with a private pond, extensive gardens and large patios. Judy Sheindlin is one of the highest paid people on television with a year salary of $47 million. Judge Judy has been on the air since 1996 with as many as 6,000 episodes over 22 seasons.
