This $175M mansion is the most expensive listing in New York

An estate in Southampton that was once owned by Henry Ford has just hit the market asking a whopping $175 million, the Real Deal reports.

The seller is portfolio manager Brenda Earl, and if she gets anywhere near the asking price for this place, she’ll have hit a record for the priciest sold property in the country (that record is currently held by another Hamptons property, Barry Rosenstein’s $147 million house in East Hampton).

Set on 42 acres, the property at 90 Jule Pond — known as Fordune — features a 20,000-square-foot home with 12 bedrooms and bathrooms; a greenhouse and a carriage house with another three bedrooms; basketball and tennis courts; a 60-foot pool; a garage that can accommodate at least six cars; and almost 1,300 feet of prime ocean frontage on the Atlantic.

Earl bought the estate in 2002 for an unknown price. Bespoke Real Estate has the listing.

This is not the only pricy property on the East End to hit the market this year; a giant parcel of land on Meadow Lane in Southampton was listed in July for $150 million. [TRD]
