Bruce Springsteen sold his 8,000-square-foot Wellington mansion last week for $2.95 million — 25 to 35 percent off its original asking price of $3.95 million. The Boss purchased the five-bedroom home at 3561 Ambassador Drive at the Equestrian Club Estates with his wife, Patti Scialfa, for $3.1 million cash in June 2008, but barely lived in it. Three months later, they bought the 6,600-square-foot house next door, at 3581 Ambassador Drive, for $4.1 million and set up shop there instead. The buyers on the larger home were New Yorkers Daniel Crown, heir to the fortune of defense contractor General Dynamics, and his wife, Ellen. [Palm Beach Post]
