BILL AND MELINDA GATES NEW HOME IN WELLINGTON, FLORIDA
Soon moving in to the equestrian-happy pastoral Wellington enclave of Mallet Hill, the family will be living in a four bedroom, four bath 7234 sq ft $8.7MM property.
Built in 2010, the Spanish-style home features custom English cabinetry, 10-foot mahogany front doors and a poolside built in grill.
A 20-stall barn and show jumping training grounds are also features of this 4.8 property. Cost was reported to be $8.7MM cash.
Having rented for two years in the area, a desire fueled by daughter Jennifer's pursuit of show jumper training, note that these photos were probably taken before the purchase.
The Homeowners Association has been approached to replace the enclave's unmanned gate to a gate manned 24/7.
Bill Gates is reported the be the second richest American with a current net worth of $67BB. The Gates foundation has done a great deal of charitable work across the globe.
