Mr. Tepper builds his dream house
A lot of great things have been done out of love, but few are as awesome as those done out of spite.
Jon Corzine, the bearded former CEO of the ill-fated MF Global, reportedly passed over David Tepper for a partnership at Goldman Sachs – twice – while he was ran the firm back in the early 90’s. Well, the future multi-billionaire did not take kindly to that.
Fast forward to 2010, Tepper bought Corzine’s former beachfront mansion from the man’s ex-wife, and promptly razed the 6,165 square foot pad to build his own mini fiefdom on the 6.5 acre oceanfront plot instead.
Further sticking it to Corzine, Tepper told the New York Mag “you could say there was a little justice in the world” when he bought and leveled the place.
And it’s finally finished! The 15,000 square foot mansion now boasts a T-shaped pool, an elegant-looking motor court, a tennis court with an ocean view, and various other amenities fit for a man who bagged $4 billion in 2009 alone.
Curbed Hamptons has some pretty cool aerial photos of the place here. Check it out.
