Fairfield pond is one of the world’s most expensive homes and here’s some history about it.

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. The house has a dozen chimneys and a Mediterranean-style tile roof as well as a 91-foot (28 m) long formal dining room, a basketball court, a bowling alley, two tennis courts, two squash courts, and a $150,000 hot tub. Its property taxes in 2007 were $397,559.00. Based on these taxes, the home is currently valued at $198 million making it the most valuable home in the United States.

Fairfield Pond includes a 64,400-square-foot main house, plus 12 other structures on the property, which include the most expensive two-story “playhouse” with a size of more than 7,400 sqft, plus gate houses at the entrance to the mansion home, staff quarters, a huge greenhouse, and several mechanical or maintenance buildings. All told, a total of well over 100,000 square feet is under roof on the mansion home.
