Sorry Gatsby, looks like Henry Ford has got you beat. Behold Fordune (or "Jule Pond" if you want to go with what the new realtors are trying to call it), the esteemed Southampton estate originally commissioned by the Ford family in 1960. Now owned by Portfolio Manager Brenda Earl, the sprawling, but surprisingly tasteful, mansion has hit the market for $175 million, making it the most expensive property for sale in the Hamptons - ever.
But that record-breaking price is well-warranted. The oceanfront property boasts over 42 acres, 12 bedrooms, a sauna, a 60-foot pool, and both a tennis and basketball court. But of course. It was completely renovated in 2008 so, though it has history, it's modern through and through. Perhaps the most intriguing feature? About 1,286 feet of beach frontage - the most of any property out East. It's basically like owning your own resort.
Take a tour before Bey and Jay most definitely snatch it up.
