What’s a measly $8.7 million when you’re worth $72.7 billion?!
Yes, real estate savvy friends, we’re talking about none other than the world’s richest man himself, Bill Gates.
The co-founder and chairman of Microsoft recently picked up some extra investment property in the Sunshine State for a quite affordable (in billionaire standards) $8.7 million.
The relatively modest Mallet Hill estate in Wellington, Florida (70 miles outside Miami) sits on a lush green 4.8 acres and Gates is the first owner because this spread is brand spanking new.
The secluded and majestic 4-bedroom, 7,000 square-foot manse comes with all the fancy amenities fit for the software king – open floor plan, tile flooring, granite countertops, custom made English cabinetry, 10-foot mahogany front doors, gorgeous pool and even a 20-stall barn.
Not quite what we’d expect from the mega-rich mega-mogul, but we’re still quite impressed with his humble real estate taste.
