Calvin Klein is one of the few persons in the world who would first buy a century old house for $30million only to raze it later on to build a smaller home. The Dragon’s Head mansion, as it was called in popular culture was demolished in 2009 to make way for a smaller mansion. It was built in the mid-1920s by Henry Francis du Pont and was added to by financier Barry Trupin in the Eighties.
Location: This property is situated in the Hamptons area of Long Island, New York.
Accommodation: The demolished mansion was spread in the area of 50,000 square foot and came with different gothic structures like spires, turrets and an indoor saltwater aquarium. Klein bought the home in 2003 for $29million and has reportedly spent two years trying to get permission to tear it down so he could replace it with a newer model. The new home is planned to build in the area of 1700 sq ft and will be spread between three buildings connected by underground tunnel. This 10 acre oceanfront property will now feature a house 1/3 the size of original castle. The home’s design was put together by famous East Hampton architect Michael Haverland.
Neighborhood: Long Island has many celebrity homes in it. Famous names like Howard Stern, Martha Stewart, Jerry Seinfeld and many more have their holiday homes in Long Island.
