Here is a video visit through the really dazzling property:
The property has a rich history associated with perhaps the best fortune in American history. In opposition to what you may expect, Henry Ford II, AKA “Hank the deuce” (not to his face), was Henry Ford I’s grandson. Not child. Hank the deuce was brought into the world in 1917 to Eleanor and Edsel Ford. Edsel was Henry Ford’s lone kid.
Henry Ford II wedded Anne McDonnell in 1940. They had three kids together. Anne was a socialite who experienced childhood in Southampton. Maybe at her encouraging, eventually in the last part of the 1950s, Anne and Hank obtained 235 sections of land of oceanfront Southampton land and started developing a manor.
By 1960 they at long last finished what was a 16,000 square-foot manor. They named their new bequest, Fordune.
Henry and Anne didn’t extra any cost in developing Fordune. They utilized the most-costly structure materials, bringing in fine Italian marble for the chimneys, antique equipment from an European house and surprisingly appointed multifaceted roof embellishment – which are all still in plain view at the home.
Lamentably for Hank the deuce, Anne sought legal separation in 1964.
Much more terrible, Anne got Fordune.
Anne before long administered a sub-division of the 235-sections of land into a few properties. She additionally astutely gave lumps of land to a conservation society, guaranteeing the property could never have close neighbors to one side or right.
In 1978 Anne offered Fordune to an Italian agent named Carlo Traglio.

Even in the wake of adapting to expansion, that is “just” $7 million. Today $7 million MIGHT get you a house on one section of land with binocular perspectives on the sea.
Traglio offered the home in 2002 to an agent named Brenda Earl. The cost in 2002?

Lord played out a significant redesign in 2008 that eventually extended the area from 16,000 to 20,000.
As we referenced already, Brenda initially recorded the property in 2017 for $175 million. That would have been sufficient to set the unequaled Hamptons record by about $30 million. By our following, at the present deal cost of $145 million, this is the SECOND most-costly home deal in Hamptons history. Brenda missed the record by $2 million.
