Rupert Murdoch Sells Mansion for $9 Million

There is a rumor floating around on The Real Estalker blog that Rupert Murdoch and his wife have finally sold their Long Island mansion for $9.1 million. The house is located on a sprawling 4.6 acre lot in Oyster Bay. Some additional details about the mansion, which has been on and off the market since 2007:

The stately and blue-shuttered 1900s Colonial main mansion–with day-core done by Oval Office decorator Michael Smith–measures around 10,000 square feet and includes 11 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms plus a 950-square foot guest house.

Rosehearty’s grounds spread out over 4.6 acres of rolling lawns dotted with mature shade trees, a 50-foot swimming pool with pool house, waterside lit tennis court, several outbuildings, garaging for 8 automobiles, and an achingly charming beach cabana for stashing kayaks, water weenies and chaise lounges.

Yes, the house is called “Rosehearty.” When a place is that big it gets a name. That’s Rich People Rule #235.
