Golfer Tiger Woods reportedly has purchased a mansion in the Hamptons on New York’s Long Island that had been on the market for $65,000,000. gin-bitmap-i.bmpgin-bitmap-iv.bmpgin-bitmap-iii.bmpgin-bitmap-v.bmpgin-bitmap-vi.bmpgin-bitmap-vii.bmpgin-bitmap-ii.bmp The New York Post’s fine celebrity real estate columnist Braden Keil broke the story today that Tiger won a bidding war to purchase the 5.9-acre property, which is at 104 Gin Lane in Southampton. Features on the estate, which Oscar-winning “Chicago” producer Marty Richards once had owned, include a 13,200-square-foot mansion with six bedroom suites, a music room leading to the den, a cypress wood paneled library, a breakfast room and additional staff quarters, according to listing information. The estate also has a 7,500-square-foot guesthouse with a den and three en-suite bedrooms with ocean views, according to listing information. Outside on the estate, which is known as “By the Sea,” are an allee of sycamore trees over a winding driveway, a four-car garage and staff quarters, a large seaside pool with a spa, a tennis court, a stocked lily pond, award-winning rose gardens and a whopping 408 feet of ocean frontage with a 15-foot-deep rock revetment, according to listing information. We had written back on March 4 about the Gin Lane property, which at that time reportedly was under contract. At the time, we broke the news that the estate’s current owner was an executive with Andlinger & Co., although we had reported that the Andlinger executive who owned it was Ivar Mitchell. Keil today is reporting that the actual owner is the company’s founder, Gerhard Andlinger. Either way, it’s pretty clear that an obscure muckety-muck at Andlinger & Co. is the entity behind the 1776 Investment Corp. company, which had purchased the estate from Richards in late 2003 for $23,000,000, according to public records. Tiger’s purchase price is as-yet unclear, and the public records databases that we have access to don’t yet show that the purchase has been recorded (it’s possible, in fact, that the deal may not even have closed as of yet). But, assuming the deal does close, we’ll of course report the final purchase price when it becomes available. As Keil has correctly noted in the past, if the estate closes for more than $58 million, it would represent the highest-priced “single-parcel” property sale ever in the Hamptons. Investor Ron Baron in May 2007 famously paid $103 million for a spread at 260 Further Lane in East Hampton, but it was in two transactions for two parcels, for $58 million and $45 million, through his 260 A LLC and 260 BC LLC companies. Keil’s report today omitted the fact of Richards’ past ownership of the property, which historically has been a staple in celebrity real estate coverage of this particular property. One final point: Tiger’s real-estate portfolio has been written about extensively over the last few years. The golfer has been reported to be building a 16,500-square-foot mansion at a golf course he designed in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, and he also has been reported to have purchased a vacant luxury homesite in 3 Creek Ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. His principal U.S. residence (up to now), however, has been the estate on Beach Road (with address numbers 462, 466 and 467 S. Beach Road) in Jupiter Island, Fla. that he purchased in pieces through his Sand Turtle LLC company in 2006. Also in the U.S., Woods owns a condo unit at 2616 Ocean Boulevard in Newport Beach, Calif., which he purchased through his 26th Street LLC company. Tiger also owns some other properties in Orange County, Fla. as well.
