You may already know about metals billionaire Ira Rennert’s gigantic Hamptons mansion.
But there’s no way to convey in words what a 43,031-square-foot, 29-bedroom, $200 million home looks like From The Air !
Thankfully the folks at the excellent real estate blog Curbed had the bright idea to hire an aerial photographer, who took photos and video footage of what is widely considered the largest home in the U.S.
Curbed commissioned the photographer in an effort to find evidence of a 10,000-square-foot museum Rennert is said to be building on his property to house his huge art collection.
He reportedly started the project without obtaining permits.
Curbed couldn’t see any new construction on the estate, and neither could we, but they want to hear from you if you spot anything unusual.
There are more high-res aerial shots of the home on their site.
The museum wouldn’t be the first outrageous addition to the Sagaponack, New York property. As my colleague Morgan Brennan noted in a recent post, amenities at the 63-acre Fair Field estate include not one but three dining rooms, three swimming pools sitting side by side, two courtyards, an orangery, a 164-seat screening theater and a pavilion housing a basketball court, a gym, and a 2-lane bowling alley.
There’s a synagogue for Rennert and his family — and an on-premise power plant to keep everything running.
