Rennert, the billionaire home owner caused a fuss with his neighbors because he was building such an enormous mansion beach front home in Sagaponack, New York – it’s even considered one of the largest occupied residential compounds in the United States. The house outraged local residents, who claimed the billionaire mansion home owner originally planned to use it as a mega spa, a huge hotel, or a maybe even a income property like a religious retreat. Rennert denied such allegations, and the local paper later issued an apology. Rennert named his home after the adjoining body of water, Fairfield Pond.
The house faces the Atlantic Ocean and its grounds measure 63 acres (250,000 m2). The buildings, which total over 110,000 square feet (10,000 m2), including the 66,000-square-foot (6,100 m2) main house, have an Italianate facade, 29 bedrooms, and 39 bathrooms.
