Update: As of June 2, 2011, the Hamptons Mansion has been razed.
Originally listed at $50 million, Hedge Fund manager David Tepper purchased this grand Hamptons Estate last year for $43.5 million. It was previously owned by Joanne Dougherty, the former wife of Jon Corzine, once a Senator, Governor and Mayor of New Jersey. It’s set on approximately 6 acres with oceanfront and includes huge marble bathrooms, a tennis court, swimming pool, large windows overlooking the incredible ocean views and reportedly rents for $900,000 each summer season. What’s not to love? It seems the new owner, David Tepper, just isn’t impressed with his $43.5 million purchase.
He plans to tear down the 6,165 square foot estate and make way for a NEW 11,268 square foot home. Architect Jaquelin Robertson says the new home will be a cedar shingled two story Georgian Colonial style home and will feature a sunken tennis court, three car garage, second floor decks featuring a jacuzzi and a covered porch. Tepper is 53, and has three children with his wife, Marlene who currently live in Livingston, New Jersey. The possible reasoning for this disgusting demolition could be that a “sand dune” interferes with the current first floor views. The demolition has already been approved but the permits on the new structure are currently pending.
