16. 211 Lily Pond Lane, East Hampton, NY – Purchased for $29 million on August 29, 2017
Built in 1920, this 10,000 sq. ft. mansion was completely renovated before it went on the market. It includes 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, sun/game room, library, and 6 fireplaces. As an added bonus, it sits on 1.2 acres of land, including 200 ft. of ocean frontage, and has a 40’ heated gunite pool. It has an extensive history as a summer rental property and was used by the Clintons in 2011 and 2012. Interestingly enough, the home was owned by Elie Hirschfeld, a major supporter of President Trump, at the time. The new owner, Eric Blatstein, is the founder and CEO of OTG EXP Inc. He, too, plans to rent it out, so if you have an extra $150,000 a month lying around, the house is currently available for rent.
