Bill Gates spent $8.7 million on an equestrian estate in Wellington, Florida, Gossip Extra reports.
Gates is the richest man in the world with a net worth of $70 billion, according to Bloomberg’s Billionaire Index. For Gates, buying this mansion is like a normal person buying a nice sandwich.
Two times previously Gates had rented the home. The combined cost of those rentals was $1.1 million, Gossip Extra says. At that price, Gates might as well just buy it.
He bought the house because Wellington is a big horse area. His daughter is training to be a world-class show jumping rider, according to Gossip Extra.
His other neighbours include Michael Bloomberg, Frank McCourt, and other wealthy individuals.
