Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill are expanding their foothold in Westchester County, picking up the house next door to their place in Chappaqua.
The new “ranch style” house on Old House Lane was originally priced at $1.18 million, but was sold at a slightly reduced $1.16 million – or $319 per square foot – in August, the New York Post reported.
The presidential candidate and husband, who was then president, purchased a house on the cul-de-sac in 1999.
“Rumor has it that the Clintons plan to use this as a mother/daughter house for Chelsea and her kids to visit on the weekends when they want to escape the city and their Flatiron digs since the Chappaqua house has a nice pool and plenty of rolling green lawn for kids to play on,” a source told the newspaper.
Douglas Elliman had the listing. According to the listing, the house is a “beautifully renovated 3-bedroom ranch boasts an open floor plan, pecan wood floors throughout, modern chef’s kitchen with Viking, Subzero and Asko appliances, opens to an eating area with fireplace and the family room, all with built-in cabinetry.”
The house may offer more space for presidential aides and security staff if Hillary wins office. The Clintons own a number of properties, and their first private home was West Clinton Drive in Fayetteville, Ark. [NYP] — Miriam Hall
