Lachlan Murdoch, son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch and a leader of the family’s $US62 billion business empire, has reportedly purchased a $US29 million estate in Aspen, Colorado, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Murdoch, 46, is co-chairman of News Corp. and executive chairman of 21st Century Fox. Earlier this year, the Financial Times reported that Murdoch has a passion for “mountain climbing and the great outdoors,” so his purchase of the Mopani Estate, located on Buttermilk Mountain with views of Red Mountain, is no big surprise.
The home was most recently listed by its previous owner, tech entrepreneur Mark Schaszberger, for $US44 million in June. It first appeared on the market for $US49 million in 2015. Amy Doherty and Joshua Saslove of Douglas Elliman had the listing.
Below, take a look around the 44.6-acre property.
The estate was first listed for $US49 million in 2015. Its price was later chopped to $US44 million.
