Curbed’s Rob Bear reports that billionaire publishing heir/financier Dirk Ziff has recently listed his Katonah, New York mansion for $8.9 million. Ziff, who has an estimated net-worth of $4.4 billion, is the eldest son of the late publishing magnate William Ziff, Jr.

He and his brothers inherited their father’s fortune after he sold 95% of his publishing business to private equity firm Forstmann Little for $1.4 billion. With that money started Ziff Brothers Investments, which invests in a variety of asset classes, private equity and hedge funds, according to Forbes.  

The Ziffs also provided seed money to hedge funder Daniel Och. In exchange, they got a 10 per cent stake in Och-Ziff, which is now a publicly traded hedge fund.

Dirk and his wife, former Forbes reporter Natasha Bacigalupo, bought the manor in 2002 for $6.25 million, records show.

The stone manor was built in 1900.

It's located on 360 Pea Pond Road in Katonah, New York.

The home is 7,200 square feet.

There are eight fireplaces in the home.
