Seattle-based Microsoft founder Bill Gates - and the second richest man in the world - remarkably , does not have an excess of properties. Previously, when his horse -loving daughter participated in Florida, the multi- billionaire rented houses for his family rather than buying.
No longer. According to the South Florida property records and Extra Gossip , Gates now has a place in Wellington , Florida , paying U.S. $ 8.7 million in cash. The Mediterranean style residence is very different and much smaller than the high-tech compound and modern Gates extends over 5 acres with 4650 square meters of living space on Lake Washington , about 13 kilometers east of Seattle.
The doors of the house just purchased Wellington is reportedly a residence he and his family rented last year in January when her teenage daughter participated in the Winter Equestrian Festival. Built in 2010, the field has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms with 670 square meters, open floor plan . Horse-friendly features like a 20 stall barn and arena jumping were probably part of the Gates decision to buy the house .
Gates is not the only purchase in Wellington businessman. New York Mayor Bloomberg and founder Michael Bloomberg has a house there, and the former owner of the LA Dodgers , Frank McCourt .
