Tommy Hilfinger Sells a House

Well, at least he put it on the market. When and for what price it sells remains to be seen. The initial asking price is $28 million.

As faithful readers of this blog will recall, it was less than ten months ago that Tommy was planting trees. Click here 4/14/2007 09:56:00 AM to read the story, and here 5/01/2007 01:57:00 PM to see the pictures. Today, the trees look as though they've always been there. By the time spring gets here and the house-lookers are out in force, they should be pretty handsome.

What does 28 mill buy in this Town these days? The mandatory minimum of 20,000 square feet which all serious home-buyers are looking for, of course; an "infinity-edge" swimming pool; a tennis court; a basketball court (Tommy plays basketball?! That's new news to your scribe!); a pool pavilion; a 2,000-bottle wine cellar; a sauna and massage room; a suede-lined home theatre for two dozen of your closest friends (popcorn machine included); and "lush gardens". Oh, and let's not forget the allee of instant trees.

For those who may not yet know what an "infinity-edge" swimming pool is, it is a pool at the far end of which the water seems to fall away over the edge of the pool in an apparent drop into the landscape beyond. Here is an example of such a pool at the Masia De L'Avi in Spain, which you may rent for a mere 1,800 Euros a week during the high season (click for the CineMax view):

Looks as though you could swim right out into the valley, doesn't it?

The master bedroom suite takes up half the second floor. The MBR itself is swathed in cashmere (wallpaper is so passe, you know), and there are, of course, separate closets for shoes, ties, belts, and jackets. Pants are housed on a motorized rack just like the ones you see at your neighborhood dry cleaner's.

So there you have it. If you've been looking with a house with a separate closet for your belts all these years, look no more. Just mosey up Round Hill Road and move right in. Oh, and don't forget to bring a cashier's check for the $28 million.

28 million? I can't even imagine...

Although I do want one of those infinity edges for our pool.

Hey, Unpredictable is headed your way. :)

What a piece of crap housing! Only $28 million? Obviously way below my standards to even considering looking at. How laughable...he is trying to sell a tree house for the price of a doll house.

Honestly, clothing clueless when it comes to realestate.

Hi, MI!

You should have seen the double-page spread in yesterday's local rag! Pics of everything but the kitchen sink - and, oh yeah, the belt closet.

Like you, I think I'll pass on this house. I visited it once, and it left me cold. More a showplace than a home, if you know what I mean.
