What have the Rich and Famous been up to?
Yesterday, CNBC reporter Colleen Kane reported that the house where Bruce Springsteen wrote his career launching ‘Born to Run’ is up for sale for $349,000, making it the ultimate fan collectable.
Today, Lauren Beale of the Los Angeles Times reported that financier Gary Winnick’s 8.4 acre property adjacent to the Bel-Air Country Club, is quietly up for sale for a guesstimated price of $225 million. That’s a staggering $7,833 a square foot! High by almost – but not all – standards. It’s considerably less than the $13,158 a square foot paid for Tully Friedman’s Woodside California home recently.
