Bunny Mellon, the 102-year-old widow of banking legend and philanthropist Paul Mellon, put her gorgeous, 26-acre Cape Cod compound on the market last January for $28.7 million.Now, it appears that billionaire Bill Koch, sibling of Tea Party darlings David and Charles, has purchased the home for $19.5 million through an LLC, according to celebrity real estate blogger The Real Estalker.

It’s on secluded Oyster Island, with a main residence, guest house, tennis court, lawns, gardens, and orchards.

Here's the main house.

And the view from the water.

This is how you get to the water.

A nice spot for a picnic.

Manicured lawns.

As you can see, the word compound is really appropriate.

The Cape Cod estate was just a small piece of the Mellons' real estate portfolio.
